Americans don't know who Mario Balotelli is, wonder why chef Mario Batali signed with Puma

On Monday, Darren Rovell reported that Italian international, former Manchester City and current AC Milan striker Mario Balotelli signed with shoe company Puma. Nothing special or out of the ordinary, just a routine athlete shoe endorsement deal.

But as big as soccer has gotten in the states, it still isn’t that big. Immediately fans wondered why famous Chef Mario Batali had signed with Puma. They wondered what happened to his famous Crocs.

Some were confused at first but realized the difference, cause you know the picture didn’t give it away.

Rovell found it amusing.
