“Ridiculous” Thoughts On Fernando Torres & Cristiano Ronaldo

When a young gentlemen in an expensive sports car is pictured in polite conversation with an officer of the law at the side of a road, the natural conclusion for us to reach is that he has been nabbed for speeding. It has been known, after all.
Things are not always as they seem in the wacky world of football, though. Fernando Torres, the young gentleman in question, was actually in the process of reporting a photographer for tailing him, and not, as at least one newspaper reported, receiving a ticket.
Oh Fern. We never stopped believing. Those freckles would never do anyone harm.
However, this thought leads us directly to our next reportage; the affairs of one Cristiano Ronaldo, lovegod of this parish. You see, fascinating though this expose of C-Ron’s sex life is, we found our attention inexorably drawn to the word ‘ridiculous’. Usually we would cheer at the inference, but in light of Nandina’s ‘misunderstanding’ we are cautious. Does ridiculous mean sizable as in ‘that diamond gift for services rendered is ridiculous’? Or foolish as in ‘Ian Poulter’s trousers are ridiculous’?
It is vital we figure this out. Our future happiness may depend on it.
