This is the kind of clip that merits a knuckle bite, where even the goalie stays rooted to the spot and just admits, “Damn, nothing you can do about that one.” The thing is? Not his best goal IN THIS MATCH.
That would be here. And yes, Ronaldo is less beloved than Messi pretty much everywhere but Portugal, and maybe that matters, but it probably doesn’t when you’re a guy who can do THAT. His pre-World Cup float in Portugal almost makes sense.
In addition to the visible testicle, please note the cigarette pack of women and subsequent ashtray. Obviously, no American athlete would ever have a float like this as a positive, but I don’t know if any would deserve it based on how they play their game. You could see Tiger Woods, maybe, but that has more to do with his fateful Thanksgiving and less to do with his golfing.
Anyway, I’m not going to attempt to say anything profound or overly insightful about those goals. I’m just going to watch them on repeat for the rest of the day. Enjoy.
