We at De Ludo Bloggi...

believe that we must not touch our idols; we never seem to be able to wash the gilt off our hands. Alas; we seem only too adept at sullying the very idols, sacred or profane, who ought to remain intangible, bepedestalled and otherwise unpedestrian.

And so it was that we came across a picture of a Bollywood starlet while skimming the daily news for Pujo-related shoppommodities. And lo!, said we, for the starlet, one Zayed Khan, bears a resemblance to one of our idols in a rather different, er, field. That is, Gigi Buffon, star keeper of Italy and Juventus. Without further delay we got to work, armed with Photoship and much snickering. And here we are, scrubbing the sparkle off our fingers!

Gigi 4 Pujo!

My, my, he cleans up nicely, doesn't he? We allowed Gigi to keep the hairband - it is, a little birdy tells us, a gift from Luca Toni and of immeasurable sentimental value.

Most excellent, fellow glober.

Maybe Gigio should give the Capocannoniere something in return. A nifty wristband, perhaps, to show off every time he scores (yet another!) goal and does his little 'can you believe this?!?' wave.

I can think of a few things Gigi could give Tonigol to make him a little less nervous on the pitch... Oops, did I just type that? A wristband sounds wonderful, I mean.

It makes me sad to see how visibly frustrated he is in Fiorentina these days.

So yes, one of the things Gigi could give him? A one-way ticket the hell out of the Viola. Plummet the boy into another club and watch him pull a Nistelrooy (not but that's what he actually did last season, no?)!
