La Liga ‘Ballers: Alternative Sports Support

Happy Face: It’s always nice to see fellow athletes showing their support for one another.

Sad Face: It’s never nice to see how said professionals dress when they’re not in their own required sporting uniforms.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Raul Gonzalez and Rafael Nadal posed for a locker room photo today after the two Real Madrid footballers watched Rafa take on Dolgopolov Jr. in the Madrid Masters Tennis tournament. The thoughts that circulated through Ronaldo’s head as he spoke to himself in the mirror this morning; we do not have the time to even contemplate.

BTW, Nadal sure knows his way around European footy stars, doesn’t he? We wonder if he wouldn’t mind sharing his address book with us?

Barcelona at basketball

FC Barcelona's soccer team players Sergio Busquets, left, Gerard  Pique, second from left, Bojan Krkic, second from right, and Carles  Puyol,

Similarly, Sergio Busquets, Gerard Pique, Bojan Krkik and Carles Puyol attended the Euroleague Basketball Final Four final game between Olympiacos Piraeus and Regal FC Barcelona in Paris over the weekend.

At least the Barcelona ‘ballers exercised some style restraint, opting to cheer on their club’s basketball team in official jerseys rather than attempting to outfit themselves in 1970′s hodgepodge.

And lastly, a blast from our F5 past graced us with his rarely-seen presence. Getafe footballer, Miguel Torres, gave the Masters clay court attendees another ensemble to think about. What’s that children’s chant? First is the worst – second is the best – third is the one with the open-button chest?

Burger King boy jokes aside, this is how all athletes should dress to impress when they’re navigating the mean streets that is the public domain.

    Ahahahaha, what is Cris wearing. Seriously!?

  2. sana says:

    i think cris looks great really stylish ok the shirt is a lil 70s like but is well ok he looks hot and it feets him.

  3. cr9 lover says:

    just what i wanted pique and bojan together that's just aaaaaaaaaaaah toooooooooo hooooooooot

  4. cr9 lover says:

    I am one hundred percent obsessesd with Chrissy but sometimes he embaresses me with his clothing style, so this time i really have to agree with hp i mean what the heck, can't he take some style tips from david beckham.

    • senora ramos says:

      at least he looked better the next day :) poor cris and his fashion sense (or the fact that he's devoid of any)

  5. aps says:

    Whoever told Cris that that outfit was ok needs to go to jail along with Cris himself for wearing it! Horrendous! On the other hand I love Pique's pop the collar look with the jersey.

  6. hoda says:

    cristiano and rafa toghether?dios mio que fiesta!

  7. SunnyK says:

    Cristiano (and Raul and Granero) was back today and dressed much better. Though, I only saw him from the waist up and, for all I know, he could have had a pink tutu on!

  8. Cris should just give up on clothes and simply walk around naked. That's a look that really works on him.

  9. Homeskillet17 says:

    KICKETTE! You spelt Bojan's surname wrong! Krkic with a c! lol :P ah i love the barca boys. almost forgot to say that crusty's outfit looks ridiculously cheesy…haha!

  10. lorena_chanel says:

    I just watched Nadal's 2day match and there were again el Capitano and Cris in front row AAAND…I think he got it this way!!! :-D I wasn't able to see his entire outfit,but from what i saw it was pretty good !!! :-D

  11. laz says:

    the good news is that these footballers do tend to improve their dressing style around the big three O (e.g… see beckham) as demonstrated above by raul so there may be hope for cr yet in a few yrs time.

    (of course there are exceptions to the rule – such as guti in that green suit a while back i think – but seriously cr's problem is that he tries to hard and it shows – unless it's a pinstripe don't wear patterns on shirts, tight and showing skin doesn't automatically equal sexy (sometimes skips to sleazy depending on advert) don't bring sunglasses unless it's v sunny and you're actually planning to wear them and for goodness sake you're not in school anymore, you only have to tuck in your shirt in formal (and some work situations like you got an meeting with a client) situation such as when in a full black tie type advert, rest of the time untuck – once again see raul above)

    of course the above is personal opinion – the rest of you may have better advice than me!

  12. ronaldo plz come back to manuntd we need u and love u

  13. KatiGaray says:

    lol, what is it with him and Gozalo, is it the whole felow country man thing??? i really hope he makes it to SA for the WC or i will personally go to Spain just to see him!!! So happy that h e don’t have a wag :) he must be waiting for me lol <3 btw how do you reply to a comment, can't seem to crack it

  14. hp says:

    C Ron looks like a sleazy latino porn star there, nadal looks like a giant kid , and raul looks really scruffy

  15. KatiGaray says:

    I know this is totally off the topic, but since there are some real madrid men in this article, i would like to know about Ezequiel Garay, the man is so so so hot, but so undercover??? does he have a wag? oh gosh i love him so much, even more than i love sergio and cristiano, that a lot!!! like muy muchos!!!!

    • NinyaC says:

      Yes another Garay fan! I LOVE HIM! I don’t really know but so far he doesn’t have a WAG.

      (That’s if you don’t count Gonzalo Higuain). :p

  16. KatiGaray says:

    Lol yeah, i can just imagine all the chaos it would cause, cause the only reason some women don’t adore this man is cause of his fashion sense or lack there of. hom and Sergio Ramos make it so hard to love em sometimes lol, but its ok its not the clothes that matter its whats underneath them ;)

  17. Laurelle says:

    Ronnie, Ronnie, my darling Ronnie…

    He's been taking fashion tips from the entertainment staff at holiday resorts in Cancun. Any second now he'll be breaking into La Bamba with a Mariachi band…

    • Michaella says:

      He can't dress for his life lol. And why are the bottom of his shows beige, they look like bowling shoes!!! Plus side no matter how blue Nadals outfit is, he still looks hot.

  18. KatiGaray says:

    yay!!!!! lol gonzalo better back up if he knowes whats good for him, btw how do you reply to a comment i cant seem to crack it

  19. Zlatanista says:

    And i forgot, Raul has a cool style. He is a very likeable man.

  20. Zlatanista says:

    Ohhh, i love my Barcaboys! But Christiano needs a good friend to tell him the truth, and to go shopping with. I mean, he does the worst with what he´s got.

  21. lorena_chanel says:

    Ohhh Cris…you are making it SOOOO HARD to adore you right now :-(

  22. KatiGaray says:

    OMG, Cris looks so eeeuw!!!! wow lol but Raul and Rafa are so sexy!!! Cris is sexy but wow he has had some cringe worthy outfits!!! *sigh*, i gues GOD can't give you everything afteralll

    • lorena_chanel says:

      sooo ture! if God give him fashion sence, then he will be TO PERFECT for this world :-D C'mon girls can you imagine him in some great outfit…girls will go crazy! There will be cat-fights,alcohol abuse…Girl's World war 3 :-D

  23. Susana says:

    Another thing…is it just me or does Ronny always look out of place or awkward when he is photographed with other stars? At least he’s not doing the idiotic “thumbs up” gesture.

    On second thought, I think Rafa and Raul are laughing at Ronny’s attire.

  24. Annie says:

    Cristiano looks goofy! But I still Love him!

  25. Anonymous to You says:

    Oh Ronnie…it seems that you keep wearing things that keep bringing you down. It's alright, concentrate on what's important and keep playing well. You had a great debut season at your dream club and now next year it's time to take it all. You'll be the most hated player but at least you're also the most complete player–next year do even better and become the "best" player too, leaving no doubt to anyone!

    And finally I get to see a picture of Ronaldo and Rafa together. Apparently they were already friends and Ronaldo was also the first person to text Rafa when he lost to Federer in Wimbledon back in 2006 or 2007, telling him that he was "still number 1".

  26. Molly says:

    Raul is so hot!….but Cristiano…all I can do is laugh. He looks like a flamingo dancer or something lolololol!

    • Syrian! says:

      LMAOOOOOO flamingo dancer!! haha ur funny,, omg i know right raul is HOTTTTTT <3

      • Molly says:

        LOL doesn't he look like he about to start to clap his hands together and start to do a flamingo dance or what ever its called LOLOL!! Like thats the first thing I thought when I seen him in this picture and I just started to laugh lol :) !

        • Susana says:

          He DOES look like he's about to do a flamenco dance!

          I just can't get over the shoes…they are so hideous. They look like a cross between trainers/old man loafers. He has them in just about every color.

          Now Raul looks like a person who has seen a tennis match before! Ronny just looks confused all around.

          • Syrian! says:

            He just looks terrible :P says enough!! rafa and raul though loook amazing! the older raul gets the hotter he turns I guess damnn

  27. Erin says:

    Christ almight, crisco. Well….Raul looks good!

  28. Syrian! says:

    I am not a barca fan, but seeing these guys like that. I wouldnt mind setting next to them and do my support <3333333 Bojan and Gerard look soo cute .

  29. SunnyK says:

    Lol, Puyol looks like he's chaperoning the kids!

  30. rubyqueen says:

    ohhhhhh ronnie what are we going to do with you.??you’d think with all his money he could hire personal stylist.??i could do that all day and the best bit of it all.seeing crissy baby in nothing but tight armarni underpants…mmmmmmmm..

  31. liv says:

    Cr9 is just out of control; I knew it was too good to be true when i saw him in that perfect matching ensemble he and Karim shared the last time. Any-way he made me giggle! And Raul not so bad!

  32. HJ says:

    1)luv u, Rafa but you’re a football-club whore and you know it!
    2) my boys are looking soooooo cute!Pique is so adorable with that look! and gosh, the way Bojo is trying so hard to fit in is making me giggle. but Puyol looks so cool and kinda-grown-up with his bb :)

  33. tigerS says:

    eww sweaty armpits…

  34. Missy says:

    On the upside, the jeans are uniformly dark and the shoes are polished! The shirt however, is officially on the burn list, which is getting long at this point!

  35. Isabel says:

    *thinking….I am so shocked I cannnot even spell properly :(

  36. Alessandra says:

    LOL WTF IS CR WEARING? ABSOLUTE WTF?! hideous omg my eyes.

  37. Merel says:

    I swear… Ronaldo is gay. Too gay to function. (in dressing himself)

    • Lena says:

      Oh NO NO NO HE IS NOT GAY! Gays have TASTE and a wonderful sense of fashion! They would not be caught dead wearing such an ensemble!

      • Zlatanista says:

        I agree! It is insulting to gay people to say that outfit looks gay. Or to say Cr9 looks gay. He has got more of a sleazy look.

      • Homeskillet17 says:

        why is everyone being so funny today!? seriously i’m like rolling on the floor laughing!

  38. Bria says:

    can someone please send Ronaldo a bottle of windex so he can clean all mirrors or reflective objects in his house because something tells me they are in desperate need of cleaning!!!! has to be that because i fail to believe that someone with mirrors that they can actually see themselves in could go in the yard further more go out in public dressed like that!!!……..KICKETTE!!!…..I FEEL A INTERVENTION IS GOING TO BE NEEDED VERY SOON!

  39. Susana says:

    Why does Ronny always wear shoes that look like they've been spray-painted onto his feet? Who told him they were stylish? And the pants are always so tight and then tailored at the bottom to look like they are "one with the shoes."

    Maybe his mother is dressing him…she has horrible taste too.

    The shirt…words escape me.

  40. Ella says:

    OH CRIS! I thought we were making some progress with the updated jeans and blue jacket from a few days ago….and now THIS?? I’m in pain seeing this…I need a drink.

  41. barca4ever says:

    pique <3 <3 <3

  42. C16 says:

    Oh Dear God Cristiano!

  43. juventina says:

  44. Syrian! says:

  45. Venice says:

    Oh hello there Minty… *wink*

  46. Liz says:

    Arghhhhhh RAFA and MIGI in the SAME post. Woooooooo

  47. SunnyK says:

    Zizou was also in the crowd heating it up!

    When Raul and C Ron walked in, they were booed for not taking their seats quickly enough. Rude considering Raul looked to be limping (or on a crutch, couldn't tell). C Ron looked bored/confused whenever they showed him!

  48. jess says:

    What the hell is Cristiano wearing? :O

    • Inés says:

      I was asking the same thing!!! I mean, Is he going to a bullfight or what?

  49. Emma says:

    Awww I love my Barca boys! Baby Bojan, Puyi & Pique are regulars at the basketball games (when Regal plays in the Palau)

    Nice to see them supporting the other blaugrana teams :)

  50. Isabel says:
