Joe DiMaggio. Rocky Marciano. Joe DiMaggio's brother. Those are just a few of the many great Italian American athletes throughout history. Thanks to The Sopranos we've had the pleasure of witnessing some more.
5. Tony Soprano (Golf)
Tony was no stranger to the links. He knows how to handle a club and has a stylish collection of polos.
Just look at everyone admiring that bomb of a tee shot. Tony was also a great football player but he never had the makings of a varsity athlete.
4. Ralph Cifaretto (Basketball)
Ralph could've been ranked higher on this list but we've only seen him excel against inferior competition (Vito).
As we can see here, Vito is a lazy defender and a liability on the defensive end. Ralph's court vision and quickness are just too much for him to handle.
3. A.J. Soprano (Football)
When A.J. wasn't rocking out on the drums or doing poppers and weird sex, he was dominating the football field. Even though he is a complete idiot, he was named defensive captain of his team.
Tony was so proud.
2. Pie-O-My (Horse)
Tony loved Pie-O-My more than his own children and how can you blame him? Pie-O-My was a winner. Unfortunately, her career was shortened because Ralph Cifaretto (allegedly) burned down the stables for insurance money resulting in Pie-O-My's death.
I like this one better.
Adriana La Cerva (Tennis)
I really enjoyed watching her play.
Silvio Dante (Golf)
Look at that fit.
1. Bobby Baccala (Basketball)
Bobby was a force to be reckoned with in the paint. His size and finesse made him an elite post player.
No one could handle Bobby's 6 foot something 265 pound frame, which was built off of Karen’s Ziti, Gabagool, and many other Italian delicacies.
