I don't know about the Italian guy, but at least these wonderful pink-hatted tubers from Dara and The Explorers (Pink) acting as the contemporary incarnation of 'ol Fibonacci (a household name, right?) might actually be punkers.
But what does that have to do with Water Polo?
My sources tell me that this man (and his teammates behind him no doubt) is responsible for the aquatic version of this golden number pattern.
In the first two games they had 1 point, then the third had 2. The fourth they scored three, and it was only destined that the fifth would be 5 points. The spirit of the Italian numerologist hovering over them, could they score 8 and keep the pattern alive?
It could be no other way. These champions made their mark with a little wiggle room to spare.
