Bd4cdYrCUAAos8a (1)Well deserved and hard earned. Congratulations Cristiano! The Ballon D’Or belongs to you! He wept, his mama wept, Irina wept, I wept. Lordy, it was a cascade of tears. And he brought Junior on stage with him!


Oh happy day!

    Never in a million years I thought I would be crying over this, but I am! He so deserves it! Congrats Crispy!

    WAIT!!!! I just read a copy of his speech and he thanked his WIFE. Are he and Irina married?? When? WHAT? Awesome!

      He didn’t. He said “namorada”, which means girlfriend, not wife

      No, girlfriend – that’s what the translator said on my feed. Someone transcribed it wrong, obviously.

        That’s what I initially thought too but had to make sure! Thanks!

    the minute i saw his mom cry, i lost it. i’m so happy his family was there to share that with him, especially junior, getting a boost from MF-ing PELE.

    Congrats, Cris!!! So proud of you! And what a ceremony…all the crying had me in tears as well!

    His tears show just how hard he worked last year. Well done Mr Ronaldo! 🙂

    Bravo Chris!

    Bravo! Bravo! Bravo!

    There really was no other option… I mean Messi has been injured and not playing a lot lately and Ribery really is not challenger for Ronaldo or Messi. But I read that it was surprisingly close, the numbers voted were: CR: 27.99 percent, Messi: 24.72 percent
    Ribery: 23.36 percent (that’s from Twitter, not 100% reliable).

    That was so much more emotional that I expected, with all the happy crying and Jr being up there with him. I’m so happy for him! This is long overdue recognition and he genuinely deserves it!

    Well deserved – can’t believe it was so close. He was the best last year by far!
    And his little crispy critter is cuter than he is!

    It’s moments like these that make me proud to be madeirean and a madridista. I was watching the ceremony with friends and family and everyone cried when Ronaldo won! It was about time he won his second Ballon D’Or 🙂

    Ohh Crissy how I love you.You’re even beautiful when you cry. Loved that cutie pie Junior came up with him. Congrats congrats congrats and thank you for being so amazing for us.

    Maaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnn I had no idea things would get this emotional. Seeing him this happy and showing how much it meant to him was awesome!
    All of his hard work rewarded…. it was about damn time!

    he got me tearing up a little bit… cristaninho: cuteness overload

    Everyone at my house cried too because we are a bunch of dorks. It was the only Golden Globe worth winning in my opinion 😛

    Also big congratulations to Nadine Angerer, she plays in Australia so I have seen her play a bit. First female goal keeper to win it!

    How great for CR!
    I was at my chiropractor, doing my necksericises, watching it on my phone, and I wasn’t the slightest embarrassed to be welling up with little happy tears of joy as he gave Irina the sweetest kiss and his boy ran up and his mama wept. Don’t know what my male supervisor thought of the whole thing…

    YAY. Such a deserved win! When I saw him crying… Ooof. That’s love for what you do right there… Junior was adorable… I also love how the team is taking to social media to be delighted about it all.

    Well deserved Cris! I was in the library in school weeping like a proud mama 🙂

    What a beautiful moment, especially with Junior there too!

    This award is so long overdue (although I wish it weren’t a popularity vote). Crispy has worked many years of honing his body and skills and mind. Bravo! Tears all around. Cheers all around. And how cute is Crispy Critter?
