Super Mario Gets Tough on Bullying

Mario Balotelli






I’m not a soccer fan, but I am a fan of the way Mario Balotelli, a professional Italian soccer player, stepped up and helped a young fan stand up for himself. If a baseball player had so much as talked to me when I was a kid, I would have been thrilled. So I can only imagine that this youngster is still walking on air. Here’s what happened, according to this msnbc.com article:





A lot of pro athletes talk a good game when it comes to being opposed to bullying in school. But we must all bow to Manchester City’s Mario Balotelli, who took things to a whole different level recently in England. Among Balotelli’s recent exploits was giving a thousand pounds to a homeless man outside of a casino. But recently he topped that.

As Balotelli was leaving the team’s Carrington practice facility recently, he stopped to sign an autograph for a young fan. While chatting, he asked the boy why he wasn’t in school, being that it was early on a weekday. The boy admitted that he was avoiding school because he had been the victim of bullying.



The msnbc.com article then quotes from an article in The Sun:

After the fan revealed that he was being bullied, Mario drove the youngster and his mum over to the school in question and demanded a meeting with the headteacher.

The Blues ace got the youngster to confess what had been happening and made him identify the culprit. The lads eventually shook hands before Mario got into his white Maserati and sped off.

A source said: “Mario feels strongly about bullying and thinks it’s out of order.

“He had no qualms about sorting the mess out as he felt the lad should not be missing out on school.”

Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents.

Order it at GodIsLogical.com.

In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• How do you reconcile the “free will vs. Divine Will” conundrum?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?


Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.
