The “Cristiano Ronaldo Effect”

These past few days we’ve been bombarded with the U.S. antics of Real Madrid winger Cristiano Ronaldo. There’s Paris Hilton, the Club-hopping, the swarming skanks, the poolside rubdowns, but the memorable ones are those where he was spotted wearing his favorite tight  short shorts. Yes, those cringing-worthy moments where we can’t decide whether we should be appalled at his swimwear fashion sense, the body is awesome but the the swimwear – not.  But it seems CR9 sense of style has opened a new market for men’s shorts, as  Debenhams a known British department store has posted that its sale of skimpy shorts has jumped over more than a hundred percent compared to last week after photos of CR9 wearing tight skimpy shorts were splashed on the dailies. And they have CR9 to thank for this as they are a firm believer of copycat craze and that the”Cristiano Effect” will manifest worldwide. I sure hope not because ive seen the worst when Rio Ferdinand, his former ManU mates does this and it was not a sight to behold.I think that CR9 should concentrate more in donning matching belt and “man purse” that way he’s also promotingg his CR7 stores or is that going to change to CR9 as the Madrid store is about to open?
