International soccer star/major league crybaby Cristiano Ronaldo is back at it.
The 2014 Ballon d’Or winner took part in a friendly — I repeat FRIENDLY — televised competition with his Real Madrid teammates and proceeded to pout on camera after he figured out he didn’t win.
Alright, I have literally no idea what the hell is going on here. There’s something about juggling soccer balls and pedaling bikes, and somehow Audi is involved, but that’s not important.
What is important is the temper tantrum Ronaldo throws upon losing: “¡No puede ser! ¿Por qué? Vaya equipo de mierda que me pones,” he states. According to seventeen years of Spanish class, this roughly translates to, “No way! I wonder why I lost? Maybe it has something to do with the shitty team you put me on.”
Just like Michael Jordan, Ronaldo is clearly one of those elite athletes that can’t stand to lose in anything. I won’t knock his competitive spirit, but it’s pretty “soccer-esque” how he throws his teammates under the bus for the loss instead of taking matters into his own hands.
From one Cristiano to another, Ronaldo needs to take a page out of Aaron Rodgers’ book.
