Do you guys remember Ronaldo? Do you really remember Ronaldo? When the buck-toothed Brazilian burst onto the scene in the early 90s, his combination of size, speed (oh my God, the speed), technique and pure fantasy (OH MY GOD, THE FANTASY) was breathtaking to watch. Even today, I firmly believe his highlights still stand as unmatched. While Lionel Messi and his namesake Cristiano Ronaldo take delight on putting players on Vine and YouTube posters on a weekly basis, for me, O Fenômeno sits in the throne room solitary waiting for someone to take his crown. Call it bias. Call me old. But no one touches the real Ronaldo. Enjoy this 15 minutes of pure bliss. You have nothing better to do.
