    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.

    Since 2010, Russian model Irina Shayk has been dating soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo, and because of that we’ll simply assume that she is now a big fan of CR8 and his Spanish club team, Real Madrid.  And that should probably make her a big hater of Lionel Messi and Barcelona—but not a big enough hater […]
