Why do all other countries seem to have commentators who like Real Madrid or are at least neutral? Seems like only the one in Germany is a RM-hater :o( I had to endure his Real Madrid and especially Cristiano bashing for 90 minutes.
* CrisKa starting!!! * Pipita is a bit of a surprise, as on the RM homepage a pic of Karim was shown
And the match is on German TV!!! No internet problems! I hope for a beautiful game-play because I have so many people around, who are Barca and Messi fans. I want to demonstrate them why Real Madrid is the best club with a brilliant team and Cristiano the best player.
Dreaming of the Champions League, darling? There are so many beautiful close-ups from this press conference. The cameras and the photographers must be in love with Cristiano :o) (via Photo from AP Photo)
“Very good, happy for him and for football. I don’t know if I would be able to do it one day but I hope I can.” - Cristiano Ronaldo, asked about Messi’s 5 goals, press conference 13.03.2012 - (via Reuters)
Journalists forget that the athletes themselves respect each other. So Cristiano might not have given the answer they expected. Me gusta! Messi and Cristiano always talk about each other with appreciation. They see the qualities of the other, feel the same pressure to excel and are always under media spotlight. But we fans not always manage to react as decently. Sportsmanship is something we can learn from them.
