In the Italian Centre Shop, in the heart of Edmonton's Little Italy, the hot seller right now is a cream-colored bracelet, with the red, white and green flag of Italy emblazoned on it, a sign of support for the Azzurri at the World Cup. Outwardly, there is little sign of Oilers' fever until the name of favourite son Fernando Pisani comes up, and then, there is much smiling about the local boy making good. Pisani occasionally drops by the store on 95th St. for one of the paninos that they sell in big baskets by the deli counter — they come in either hot or mild — but he hasn't been around much since the playoff run started.
