SSC Napoli was a powerhouse of Italian soccer in the mid-to-late 1980s, winning the Italian (at the time the most prestigious) league in 1987 and 1990, paired with a European triumph in the UEFA Cup in 1990. The club eventually went into bankruptcy and fell on hard times, being relegated to the third tier of Italian calcio (The equivalent to our Double-A).
However, after winning the Serie C last season, and having a stellar season in Serie B this year, Napoli are closing in on promotion to Serie A, the top of the pyramid. For a big club like Napoli, this is a welcome day their fans.
But not anymore, thanks to 1950s Italian bombshell and avid Napoli supporter Sofia Loren, aged 72 years. Loren has promised to do a striptease if I ciucciarelli (The Donkeys) make it back to the top flight. While we all gotta get our jollies somehow, no one should be subjected to a nude 72-year old.
Napoli are presently in third place, 5 points behind second-place Genoa for an automatic promotion spot with 5 games to go. Napoli have a match in hand. The teams finishing 3rd-6th are seeded in a tournament to determine the final ticket to Serie A.
