Please make a note of it. A man and a woman in Italy were caught having sex outdoors as everyone in their town was indoors watching Italy play in the 2006 World Cup. Makes total sense to me.

But the police were unamused. The couple, a 60-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman, said that they did it outdoors so as not to offend anyone who was watching Italy play the Ukraine in the quarterfinals in Germany on TV.

They were convicted and brought their case to Rome’s Court of Cassation, the highest appeals court, where they lost again.

For the record, Italy played Ukraine that night and won 3-0, going on to win the tournament in a final against France.

Wonder how everyone in Italy celebrated?

Wait, 2006? It took six years to decide this?

    Hope they were married, but can we talk about the elephant in the room? 60 year old man still going strong. Woman 20 years younger. Now, excuse me, I have an olives and wine regimen to start.
