Actor Steven R. Schirripa plays the popular character Bobby Bacala, who is one of Tony's Soprano's most loyal Goombas on the HBO mob hit "The Sopranos."
In a follow up to his best selling book "A Goomba's Guide to Life," Schirripa is taking a different look at the life style in "The Goomba's Book of Love: How to Love Like a Guy from the Neighborhood."
The actor says a Goomba is an attitude — a combination of a good old boy, good family guy that just enjoys life — and not a gangster.
As an example of the Goomba's lifestyle, Schirripa gives the following dating tips from his new book:
- DO bring her 12 red roses.
DON'T bring a 12 pack of Bud.
- DO take her to a night club.
DON'T taker her to a strip club.
- DO steal a kiss.
DON'T steal her purse.
- DO open the car door for her.
DON'T open the trunk for her.
- DO use the proper cutlery while dining.
DON'T wipe down the silverware when you're done.
