    A coach getting injured? That’s not weird.

Sometimes it’s because he’s scoring ridiculous goals, and sometimes it’s because he’s almost running over sports reporters in his car or kicking teammates in the head.

    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.
