Thread Name: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
We went to Madeira last year and came across the bronze statue of Cristiano Ronaldo on the wide Funchal promenade. He was born and bred in lovely Funchal. It isn't exactly the world's greatest work of of art, but the inscription at the bottom describes him as the greatest footballer in the world. He's a bit of a tit is Cristiano, but he is a damn fine footballer. The bronze of the statue has the usual tarnish - except for the deliberately-prominent "family jewels" region, which has a high sheen. I'm guessing that a thousand young women have posed next to the statue for a photo and inadvertently given yer man's testicles a damned good manual polishing...
Or even young men. Damn.
