Cristiano Ronaldo Apparently Wakes Up With More Energy Than Anyone Ever

When a normal person wakes up, there's a process to be gone through before one gets enough energy to go outside and be a person. Generally there's some combination of a shower, breakfast, coffee and maybe exercise before one is ready to meet the day. Humans are ike diesel engines. It takes us a while to get properly revved up.

Except for Cristiano Ronaldo, who may not even be a human, just a 6'2" bundle of pure energy, hair gel and abs, and who gets out of bed like no human being before him.

CR7 Is Going Ham On The Pitch, On Social Media Before El Clasico

At this point, we should all be familiar with the continuous vacuum of noise surrounding Cristiano Ronaldo. Detractors claim he’s not the player he once was, Ronaldo scores eight La Liga goals in four matches. Haters claim that he’s egotistical and self-obsessed, he shows just how good this has made him and what it’s earned him.  

England vs. Spain Descends Into A Series Of Mannequin Challenges

With England and Spain both enjoying comfortable starts to their World Cup qualifying campaigns (England sit atop Group F, Spain Group G), the two nations played out a meaningless, feel good friendly at Wembley Stadium on Tuesday.

Will Donald Trump's Presidency Impact The Future of Women's Soccer?

If Hillary Clinton was elected president, we all know she would have helped America move closer to women’s rights and equality. But Donald Trump won the election instead. So, what does this mean for women’s soccer? Will Trump continue to insult and treat women poorly? Will his presidency create a bigger gap between the two genders? Will we move further away from equal pay? It hasn’t even been 48 hours and we already have so many questions…

The Soccer World Reacts To Donald Trump's Presidency

Yes, it is true. Donald Trump will be the 45th President of the United States. 

This election will go down in history, as America has elected an outsider with no previous political or military experience. Many soccer players expressed their opinions and reactions on Twitter during the election as well as after the news broke about Donald Trump winning the election. So here’s a list of Tweets from soccer players:

Bastian Schweinsteiger Went For A Walk

Bastian Schweinsteiger has yet to appear for Manchester United this season. The German midfielder returned to first team training recently (after being forced to train alone), reportedly to get in shape for a possible January move.

It can't be easy for Schweinsteiger to go through this situation with United, which he has said will be his last club in Europe. That's why we're glad to see Schweinsteiger getting some fresh air and light exercise, as well as keeping his spirits up, by going for a walk.

How Professional Soccer Stars Balance World Cups And Motherhood

Female athletes have to deal with the physical side of becoming a parent. Male athletes do not have to worry or stress about their bodies changing over time, they are able to fully focus on their careers. Men don’t breastfeed, these female soccer players make a living with their bodies, which makes it even more impressive for them to return to the game they love after giving birth.

Christie Rampone, Amy Rodriguez and Shannon Boxx were able to find a balance between World Cups and motherhood. “If you love what you do, you’ll stay true.”

Keep Looking At Cristiano Ronaldo, Please

Cristiano Ronaldo, as we've previously covered, is one of the most looked-at humans in the world. It is our contention, though, that he is not looked at enough. With that in mind, won't you please take a moment and look at Cristiano Ronaldo?

Anyone Who Has Had A Knee Injury Will Sympathize With Andres Iniesta's Message

Andres Iniesta is a consummate players’ player — his injury was felt around the planet as the loss of the Barcelona star is a loss to football as a whole. The knock he took against Valencia could’ve been a lot worse, but Iniesta is still expected to miss six to eight weeks.

At 32, serious damage to his lateral collateral ligament would’ve been devastating, and his presence was sorely missed in Barcelona’s loss to Manchester City in the Champions League.
