Lionel Messi is kind of a giant … wait I’ll cease. I can’t do it. Primarily everybody with a Twitter account listening to the Ballon d’Or ceremony on Monday made the same joke: Lionel Messi’s tuxedo appears very similar the received wore by Ron Burgundy in the ubiquitous advertisements for “Anchorman 2” (and Dodge trucks). In case you’re wondering, that’s his girlfriend Antonella Roccuzzo next to Messi.
Regardless of his bold vogue choice, Messi was denied his fifth straight Ballon d’Or, shedding out to rival Cristiano Ronaldo. The normally steely-eyed Ronaldo was caught up in emotion after taking dwelling the award for the world’s greatest participant a second time.
The Ronaldo/Messi rivalry isn’t going anyplace anytime soon. This 12 months it was truthful to honor Ronaldo, who was glorious for both Real Madrid and almost single-handedly carried Portugal into the World Cup. Ronaldo finished 2013 with sixty nine objectives in 59 targets. His 15 Champions League goals had been essentially the most in a calendar yr. For what it’s price, U.S. National Staff coach Jurgen Klinsmann voted for neither player in his Prime 3.
I’ll offer this: Messi’s facial features not often modifications whether it's on the red carpet or on the bench throughout Saturday’s Barcelona/Atletico Madrid match.
Maybe for his subsequent trick, Messi can grow a mustache.
