As Jersey Shores second season takes hold, we must remind Mike the Situation Sorrentino that he is definitely not the original greased-up guido with a thick accent, a mild speech impediment, and a beautiful way with the broads. Only Sylvester Stallone can lay legitimate claim to that throne.
We all know and love Stallone in our own weird way even with his multiple (and we mean multiple) box office bombs. But at the end of the day, Rocky is really where our hearts skipped a beat. Make fun of Sly all you want, but no one visits Philly anymore without sprinting up the stairs at the Philadelphia Museum of Art while singing Gonna Fly Now in a freaky falsetto. We heart Balboa in a big way. You dont hear that kind of genuine affection for the Situation.
