Sirius Bizniz: Paolo Maldini Indicted For Corruption, Tax Spying

For months we anxiously waited for an excuse to post this throwback Paolo Maldini picture from 2004 (taken at Macy’s in NYC’s Herald Square). Unfortunately, though, the circumstances surrounding today’s archives publishing are far from selfish.

Yesterday, the former AC Milan star was indicted on charges of corruption and illegally accessing information systems (aka ‘spying’). The retired Rossoneri ringleader, according to investigators, bribed a lifeline within the Italian revenue department to help him conduct an illegal tax investigation of another man involved in a Tuscan property transaction back in 2009. Maldini, of course, has denied all accusations.

Yeesh – ’tis a bit heavy for a Tuesday, no? Well, there’s more, but we’d rather focus on turning our readers’ frowns upside down with a pleasant twist in photo fate: Andriy Shevchenko, also at Macy’s in 2004, sporting some seriously hilarious hair and an equally-ripe for mocking tracksuit.

Our archives are nothing short of a cowlicked miracle, we tell ya.

    Why on earth would he need to bribe someone else to find out about tax matters? He can simply use those electric eyes and bore the truth out of them, if it's a guy, or mesmerize the jebeezus outta them if it's a woman….or a guy.

    His eyes….his eyyyeeees. Drool. Um, what were you all discussing?

    No. I don't believe it. I blame Berlusconi! Yeah, it was TOTALLY him. Much more believeable that way. The prosecutors can just add this on to the looooong list of Berlusconi's offenses. I'm sure no one will notice! Problem solved…moving on!
