And we fans who passionately cheer for him continue to believe that he can still compete for the top spots.

It’s a shame, because the Americans are masters of televised entertainment and we are a bit surprised by what is […]

End of Season Report (minus Table Rock) 

It isn’t easy for anyone – not for me, the writer, and not the least of all for Jacopo – to confront results that are decidedly unfavorable. The previous four tournaments developed as we might have wanted them to but they did not result in checks (even if we appreciate the result at Cayuga). But […]
