Nick Sellers, CEO of The World Games 2022, has fond memories of his late grandfather, Sam “Bosco” Giambrone, a first-generation American from Sicily, an autonomous region of Italy.

Giambrone grew up very poor, selling fruit on Birmingham’s Morris Avenue out of baskets for Central Paper Co. He worked there nearly 60 years, eventually selling paper products to iconic Birmingham restaurants like Gus’s Hot Dogs, Pete’s Hot Dogs and Sneaky Pete’s.
