Celtics' owner Jim Pallotta is going head-first into his investment in AS Roma. Pallotta attended Roma's 2-0 win over Chievo Sunday, also working on contract negotiations with midfielder Daniele De Rossi, then meeting with the team Monday.
After dining with the coaches and players at the team's training facility at Trigoria, Pallotta went to the pool, raised a prosecco toast and said: "I am one with you. We are Roma and we are afraid of nothing," according to a report in La Repubblica. Pallotta then jumped fully-clothed into the pool.
"Instinctive, determined, crazy, sure of himself. Roma has the president it wanted," La Repubblica wrote.

We've added a translation feature to the Corner Kicks blog to assist readers who may be more comfortable reading another language.
Google Translate is not perfect -- we're aware of that -- but it is quite good at getting the main points of the story across. We've successfully used it on The Big Picture, Boston.com's extremely popular world photography site. I'd be eager to hear your feedback on its use in Corner Kicks, in whatever language.
