"Bae" is a an informal slang term for a person's boyfriend or girlfriend.
Veteran Daniel Descalso went head-to-head with rookie Nico Hoerner in three rounds of questions to find out who knew teammate David Bote best on a range of subjects from celebrity crushes to pet peeves. In the second round, the tables were turned and Daniel Descalso asked David Bote who had a better sense of fashion: him or the rookie? Without hesitation, David Bote chose Daniel Descalso because he is Italian. In the end, Daniel Descalso came up with the most amount of points and was proclaimed the winner of a pair of matching David Bote car floor mats. Forza #Italia!
