American James Pallotta out to Turn as Roma into an Empire

James Pallotta, a 55-year-old investor from Boston, stood in a hotel elevator next to Junior Tallo, a 20-year old forward from Ivory Coast wearing earbuds, and asked the younger man what he was listening to. Tallo replied, but his thick accent left Pallotta confused for a second. The American billionaire leaned in, took a glance at the player's iPod and said, "Oh, Lil Wayne." Pallotta then seamlessly offered up a lyric from the rapper's hit, 'Love Me.'
