"We're going to move defenders," DeGuglielmo says. ..."We just have to change the mentality in the room, to become a dominant, physical offensive line in the making of Tony Sparano. That's what he wants, that's how I was trained when I played for him, and that's the way I dealt with it my past five years in my previous place of employment. These guys have responded well."
DeGuglielmo is Italian. And that automatically makes him 80% more badass. Because there's something about a dude who may or may not have ties to the mob yelling at you to get your fat ass up and push some dudes in the hot sun than if it came from some old white guy from Wisconsin.
Being Italian alone doesn't do it, though. You've got to have the swagger, as DeGuglielmo clearly has. I've got Italian in my family. But I'm more inclined to talk like a pizza guy than a mafia guy. While DeGuglielmo is all "We're gonna fuckin' knock da shit outta people, now go git yer fuckin' shine box!" I'm all "Mama mia! I'm-a gonna make you-a special pie. Just how you like it! That's-a spicey meat-a-ball!"
