    Cristiano Ronaldo Breaks Kid’s Wrist with Errant Free Kick (Video)

    I never pass up a chance to rag on Cristiano Ronaldo, so today I figured it’s only fair that I write a post about something he did that’s actually pretty cool.

    When Lionel Messi announced that he’d be spending a good part of the soccer offseason touring America with some of his international soccer pals in order to raise money for charity, that sounded like a brilliant PR move.

    I don’t know who first came up with the idea to put a TV camera on AC Milan play-by-play announcer Tiziano Crudeli, but it really must have been a no-brainer.
