Not only is Timbers midfielder Sal Zizzo quick on the pitch, he's swift to adapt off it.
Zizzo's FC (as in Food Cart, not Football Club) isn't serving up "authentic Italian" just yet, but Zizzo's offering does boast a fledgling web site, FB page and Twitter handle, and has already taken reservations from Portland owner Merritt Paulson.
What once housed Loco Loco Burritos has now been re-painted to resemble the Italian national team jersey and a menu is coming soon. I, for one, am hoping it'll include some dishes named after teammates. Imagine a light appetizer of Eric Brunnerchetta, followed by a bountiful plate of James Marcelinguini and Loveal Palmersan. And for dessert: Futty Tiramadanso. I'll stop now.
