Hello Wide World of Sport, and my fellow BleacherReport fanatics, my name is Jesse Rafael. Being an Italian from Naples Italy, I am a stringent follower of SSC Napoli and of course the Azzurri. I also am quite fond of Chelsea FC, being that El Nino, aka Fernando Torres just happens to be my favorite player of all time. Being that I currently live in the New York area, I also have become rather intrigued by American sports such as baseball and basketball. So I am your typical sporting connoisseur.
