In an interview with a portuguese television, Cristiano Ronaldo said that he was frustrated on not being in the field of play as he was still recuperating from an ankle surgery. He said that it was the worst moment of his sports career when he had undergone a surgery and it has hindered him from not playing ball for a few months. He also mentioned that he was not accustomed to having so much time in his hands and that it has made him sad. He wished that his situation won’t be for a longer time and that he is feeling much better every day. For a while there i was completely thunderstruck by this interview and may be just maybe that it was not Ronaldo they were interviewing. What he has described is simply unbelievable. I mean, remember this, days after the surgery, he went to LA, he met quite a few nice and pretty americans, was rumored to be with Letizia Filippi, brought a Rolls Royce and a vanity number plate. Is that what being frustrated has done for him?

But then the next phase of the interview where he commented:

It has never been a good situation, to be two months without having able to touch ball. But I know that I have to take it calmly. I want to play, that is what it makes me happier, to return to the trainings, the parties, the competition…”

 Now that’s the Ronaldo that we know, he knows what he’ really missing – the parties.

Cristiano Ronaldo has paid a whopping £150, 000 just for a vanity car number plate with the registration on CR7 – his initials and shirt number at Old Trafford. Yes, just for that number plate. £150, 000… And to think that just two weeks ago it was rumored that he placed an order for a black Rolls Royce Phantom – which costs, ok close your eyes now, a jaw-dropping £340,000. Now, i really wish that I’m a Ronaldo WAG or a ho just to ride that car. Can you imagine, a massive £490,000 for a car and a number plate just this month?  And to think that that number plate won’t go on the new car because it is reserved for his runaround, a blue £140,000 Bentley convertible! Really the obscene amount that many footie players has splashed into the market is certainly that – OBSCENE. But then if you have more money, what else can you do but splash it…

My favorite La Liga Team, Real Madrid ralied to beat Valencia 4-2 and lift the Spanish Supercup 6-5 on aggregate last Sunday. The Spanish Supercup, for your info, is an event contested annually by the league champion and the Copa del Rey winner. What is most amazing is that Real Madrid has only nine players that game and a series of ejections, first by midfielder Rafael van der Vaart who was ejected in the 39th minute and striker Ruud van Nistelrooy in the 73rd minute did not hurt the results of the game. Ruud van Nistelrooy, Sergio Ramos, Ruben De La Red and Gonzalo Higuain scored for Madrid whereas one of my favorite Spanish Hottie –  Valencia’s David Silva opened the scoring, with Fernando Morientes completing a late goal rush at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. This is the eighth time Madrid won the trophy —  — and the first since 2003. Sigh, it was such a great game and seeing hot and sweaty Raul lifting the trophy sure does makes my day.

In what could have been a bummer decision made by the Warner Brothers, those money-sucking outfit who made the Harry Potter movies, they decided to move the release date of the Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince to July 2009 instead of the November 21, 2008 we’ve been anticipating. Sucks, i know and i’m still brimming with hatred. But it’s a good thing the Summit Productions who made the Twilight movie has wisely decided to release Twilight earlier. Yay, we get to see it weeks earlier and with the wide media reception they’ve been getting months before the release, I am sure that this move will be beneficial not only to them but to us Twilighters as well. We Harry Potter lovers who’s also a Twilighters should be thankful for this development. So be prepared to be enshrouded by Twilight this November. Yes, Evil is a choice.

In what could have been a memorable tennis final at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Spain’s Rafael Nadal ‘s  won the coveted olympic gold medal after trashing Chile’s Fernando Gonzales. And hours after that he finally become the world’s no. 1 in tennis, yay! Nadal took gold with a 6-2, 7-6, 6-3 (3-0) victory.  Before the finals, Rafa faced Djokovic in a semifinal round and it was quite tense for a while because Nadal has failed to win agains Nole in the past competitions but thanks to all those double faults and errors, Nadal won the semis without a doubt. Another laurels for this hottie Spaniard who’s making 2008 definitely his year.

On the other hand, the grandest of all the Olympic champions and icon Michael Phelps won his record eight gold medals. He was all smiles after bagging the eight gold and when it was time for the awarding ceremony and the US National Anthem was playing , it was obvious that he was trying to sing but he can’t seem to get the words out, he was way emotional at that point and its just make him more eandering to us. With all these things happening, I believe that only Michael Phelps will beat his own momentous elite eight.

Mission Accomplished.

Finally, I have the time to validate all the cars we’ve read at the Twilight phenomena of one of my favorite author Stephenie Meyer. I am telling you guys, most of the cars are worth swooning for. Seriously. They say that you are what you drive and and if it means having all those lust-worthy cars that the Cullens drive then I want to be immortal and be a “vegetarian” Vampire…

San Iker, who art in goal,
Hallowed be thy gloves, that this girl loves;
Give us this game, our weekly eyecandy.
And forgive us our shoddy passes and fashion sins,
As we forgive those whom attempt to score against us.
And lead us not into the referee’s books,
But deliver us from Nereida,
And protect us from Cristiano’s cripsy existence,
For thine is the Captain, the bubbly ass, and the whorey glory,
For Iker and ever,
You hot bloody stud.
