Top google result - a criminal

Oh, well. Our current "top Trimboli on the web" is a criminal. That's not great. Let's see if some new content on my site will get google to push that down the list.

Robert Trimboli was a crime boss in Griffith, New South Wales in Australia. I'm not going to post a link because google uses links between sites to gauge how interesting they are. You can look it up yourself.

Growing up as a Sicilian-American, you always have the burden of people asking (or worse - wondering) if you're related to some Mafiosi. Well, if you look enough generations away, you'll always find someone. But, if you do that with just about anyone, you'll find someone shady.

We just have the unfortunate distinction of a stereotype tied inexorably to an ethnicity. That particular stereotype has it's own classic movie trilogy too which makes it even harder to live down.

Mike Trimboli - college basketball

A guy that shows up prominently in google results is Mike Trimboli.

[Mike Trimboli]

"A tough competitor, Mike is a
terrific player who will be our starting point guard. This is a
difficult position for a freshman to fill but I think he is up for the
challenge. He has the potential to be one of the top newcomers in the
America East this season."

Well, it sounds good to me anyway. I'm afraid that I don't follow college basketball (or pro basketball, or football of any kind... are you forming a picture?) but google says that Mike kicks ass and that's good enough for me.

Check him out on the UVM site:

"The son of Anthony and Regina Wright Trimboli, he hails from an
outstanding basketball family ... His father scored over 2,000 points
at Sacred Heart in the 1970s while his mother was a three-time hoop
captain at the school ... One brother, T.J., was an Division II
All-American at Southern Connecticut while his other brother, Bobby,
was also a standout for the Owls."

It goes to show you what a diverse bunch us Trimboli's are. Mike's out there tearing it up and I'm starting to wheeze just reading about it.

Keep it up, Mike.
