fantastic shots, those crowds of fans were amazing!! and it's a bit sad that the World Cup is over, I'm sure going to miss the excitement and great atmoshpere that came with it.. (btw, I did find you among the football fans in the second shot no problem ;)
superb yet again.. you have captured the moods very right :)
did you take part in the celebration btw? :D
CAMPIONI DEL MONDO!!!! Champions of the world!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHAHAHAAhahahahahAHAHAHAHH!!!!!
That's amazing ... here in germany we had quite similar appearances of italians partying their victory over france. But I think they just had very much luck, also when they played against germany. As long as it's peaceful one should not mind who wins; it was a very big party and the germans can be proud again of their own country and of what they achieved. Nice capture!
Great match last night, wasnt really rooting for anyone! Great photos, really captures the Italian feelings!
Some nice-looking women, those Italy fans!
Glad that isn't my car she is celebrating on!!
Great series of shots, they all show a different side of the story yesterday. The last one is my favorite, it looks like the croud goes on forever.
the last photo is great!
viva italia :)
Good journalistic impression.
Congratulations to Italy!!!
Somehow sad that the Worldcup is ended, it was soooo much fun and passion and great parties. We almost celebrated every match with new friends from around the world here in Germany.
And by the way, I do love your photos Sam! Everyday a great job.
the last photo is my favorite...
Nice shots. The first pic is really hot, I love the feel of the second one, the thrid one is awesome, and the last one is really cool too. DId you get flashed by crazy fans? It would have been sweet. Nice shots.
Great shots. I, unfortunately, was on a plane back to NYC when they went into the penalty kick shootout. Else, I would have been on St. Clair myself.
I like the "Where's Sam" shot. I found you by the way; indifferent to the excitement around you. =)
these pics are fantastic show us some more i'm an italy fan from malta
sue ,valletta malta
great pictures and congratulations to Italy. I won £32 in the offics sweapsteak!
Very nice shots. It's an interesting contrast between Toronto and the US, where I am now, that people did not get this excited about the World Cup victory (maybe in some bigger cities they did). Good coverage of the fans, Sam (and I think I see you in the pub shot).
WOW!!!! amazing shots. wow you caught it perfectly.
Nice to see Italians all over the world celebrate. Beautiful girl on the car!
wow. you would've thought people in nyc would be out and celebrating as well... nothing like this. great captures of the moment.
The bottom shot is the best...the one in the cafe is not bad either...but the last one just oozes 'action'!
As nice as the woman is in the first shot ;) i'm not sure i'd want to be the owner of that dented roof car!!
...finally...it is true..people do start to look like their pets after awhile!!
Woah, that's nothing compared to what happened around 11:00-2:00am. Reporters...giant red/white/green crowd balloons, fireworks, people standing on bus shelters, loud music, police and RCMP riot police, TONS of garbage EVERYWHERE, people on roof tops, celebration banners, a sea of Italian flags...
Truly the most incredible site I've seen in downtown Toronto. Too bad we have to wait another 4 years to see this again.
Surprising to see how many Italians were celebrating so far away from Italy! Thanks for sharing!
Campioni del mondo!!!!
Campioni del mondo!!!!!!!!!!
Especially the first one is just great.
flood of people! :D
So much jubilation over a small group of men kicking a ball around on a field. Humanity is very, very strange.
You've captured the exuberance quite wonderfully!
Great, GREAT shots, Sam! Hope you had a wonderful time! I finally managed to get back up to St. Clair by 7 and it was wilder than I could have imagined. Will be uploading some pix today.

I picked you out of the crowd and I didn't even know what you look like: you're the only one looking at the camera instead of the TV :-)
They are all excellent, my favorite is the second one from top. You captured their excitement and joy at exactly right moment.
Nice... if my Italian side is powerfull active now
I'm so happy for Itly is the winner of the world cup 2006.
Campioni! Del Mondo!!
Last shot has a strange fashinating light, they're all great shots as usual ;-)
wonderful, you've captured all the emotion. Well done the Italians. The wife feels better that her Australian team were put out by the world champions.
GREAT shots, now everyboby thinks (in the second photo) the whole crowd is Italians!!
The first shot is totally immodest.
Fear Allah, Sami!
These pics are okay but Italy totally wouldn't have won if it weren't for Zizou's craziness...
The last shot is the best. You have a hot babe in the front and a crowd in back to provide perspective.
That last shot is the best!
You're kidding, right, "Frankly"? These are great, emotional shots, Sam. Nice range, too, from the crowd shots to the tight faces. Lotsa fun.
Italy didn't deserve the championship. The team didn't observe any good sportmanship and the impious innuendo Materazzi made can only evidence of their being jerks. I have never been a soccer fan, let alone a French fan so you may be composed that I am commenting quite unbias
Awesome series! you really captured the excitement.
Viva Italia! I really like the last photograph. Thanks for capturing these emotional happy Italian fans! Some how I knew for sure that today’s captures would be in regards to the celebration yesterday. So thank you!
I was stuck at work while the fun took place - wish I got out with my camera too! Great pics Sam, as usual!
YES ITALY!!! I was extremely happy when they won that game! Italia all the way!!
Anyways, great shots you captured the emotion very well! great job!
i'm italian ;)
These shots really capture the mood of the moment and I specially like the one with the dog wearing teh Italy T-Shirt. That dog looks like J's partner in Men in Black 2.
très belles photos, même si j'aurais préféré que ça soit des français dessus...
Wow. These are some awesome, awesome photos. Especially the top one and the bottom one. Good stuff all around!
les filles italiennes sont plus belles que leurs victoire en coupe du monde....enfin tes photos sont tres interessantes, spontanées, bien composées,...felicitations.....à toi et non au Italien.....Vive la France....John
