The only reason I pay attention to soccer – or even watch it for that matter – is because of Cristiano Ronaldo. I’ve watch the kid play since Day 1 and I have yet to see anyone in the sport with better footwork and scoring abilities from anywhere on the field. Watch as he hits his 42nd goal (ridiculous!) of the season (and game-winner) against Barcelona. But the best part is how he tells the crowd to just hush a little bit.
Two of the world’s biggest athletes go head-to-head in a battle of explosive speed.
On-court, Rafael Nadal’s supremacy is almost unrivalled. But against Cristiano Ronaldo and the new Mercurial Vapor VIII, he faces a challenge like never before.

Very, very impressive!
Carlos Vela’s bicycle kick goal helps Real Sociedad stun Malaga with a late game run in La Liga.
Kobe Bryant is a pure athlete. He’s probably the most well conditioned ball player in the NBA (him and Ray Allen) and you can easily see his athleticism translate over to other sports. Check out KB24 aka The Black Mamba break some poor dude’s ankles with a little soccer crossover at the recent Mia Hamm Foundation Celebrity Soccer Challenge in Washington D.C.
Another great Nike ad…
THE TOUGHEST LOSSES MAKE THE STRONGEST TEAMS. PRESSURE MAKES US
This doesn’t exactly go down in New York City’s Chinatown neighborhood, but it rhymes, and it’s close enough so why not. At the Sara D. Roosevelt parks last week, Phoenix Suns’ point guard Steve Nash brought out his celebrity NBA and professional soccer player friends for a friendly 8 on 8 soccer game. The event was free and tons of fans took in the great entertainment for the 2nd year in a row. This year’s participants included the host Nash, Grant Hill, Brandon Jennings, Tony Parker, Patrick Viera, Youri Djorkaeff, Giuseppe Rossi, Claudio Reyna, and others.
No one could tip the man dressed as a cow at the grand opening of the Kansas City Livestrong Stadium. Watch as he runs freely on the brand new field and even gets himself a goal!
Check out what Nike has done this season for Manchester United. As one of the most historic club teams in the world, Nike laced them up with a new home kit uniform that’s inspired by the traditional red, white, and black club colors infused with a distinctive pattern iconic in club history.
That sucks! Watch as a Real Madrid soccer player drops the King’s Trophy in front of the team bus and then the team bus proceeds to run it over. The 33 pound trophy was smashed into more than 10 pieces. At least it was the star player, Sergio Ramos, that dropped the trophy otherwise someone would be getting cut.
Lesson learned? Drink Pepsi on the beach in cargo shorts and you too can kick 3 soccer balls into random trash cans on a beach like David Beckham. Real or fake? I’m going with FAKE.
