A League of His Own

Messi.AFP:GettyImages.1

It was no surprise that Lionel Messi walked away with his fourth straight Ballon D’Or this week, beating out adversary Cristiano Ronaldo and his BF Andres Iniesta. With 91 goals, he shattered the world record and played at a level few have ever seen before.

What did surprise us was how we managed to win the style showdown with one Cristiano Ronaldo. While Cristiano decided to play it safe with a classic black tuxedo, the Argentine maestro showed off some serious style with his polka-dot look. A flamboyant move for the usually reserved Messi that we applaud here at GoS. Even if polka dots aren’t your thing, you have to admire him for taking a chance and finding a way to stand out in the crowd—in more ways than one.

Poor Cristiano, forced to be the runner-up yet again. We thought he’d at least be the most dashing man of the evening but then Messi had to go out and one-up him there too.

By the way, have we told you about our almost run-in with Rinaldo? He arrived at the Madeira airport to spend New Year’s Eve in his hometown only a few hours before we got there to fly out.

  1. Messi’s tux is ridiculous. But, you’re right, it’s a good way to yet again upstage Ronaldo.
