A quick confession: I love soccer. I can't help myself, soccer (or as they call it everywhere else in the world, football) is an amazing sport. A family favorite, I have sat through - and played in - MANY games throughout my life; the sheer athleticism required to play well never ceases to stagger and impress me. And when you add to that the sheer deliciousness of the men who choose to play the sport (seriously, I have no idea what it is about soccer that draws the hotties, but I long ago embraced the fact that it does)...in fact, my longest and most serious sports crush belongs to a soccer player - Paolo Maldini. I fucking tried to learn Italian because of him! (I met him in real life while in high school, and I full-on panted at first sight...and I wasn't the only female with that reaction.)
Anyway, that was really a long lead-in to saying the Euro Championships are going on right now, and look - hot guys EVERYWHERE! And in honor of the hottest of the hot (seriously, no other word but 'perfect' - physically at least - can be used to describe this man), I give you Cristiano Ronaldo. Yes, he's a pretty boy metrosexual and in so many ways NOT my type, but still...I'm only human people. I'm not BLIND! I mean, good fucking GOD would you look at him without his shirt on?! I just...I just...nope, I can't even form sentences right now. So...um...really good soccer's going on right now. You should watch. Whether for the men or the actual sport (I don't judge); because lord knows I'm going to be mesmerized by both.
