It’s A Lukita Sweep!

3 Dec

Congratulations to Lukita! He won the Ballon D’Or (today), FIFA Best, Award and UEFA Player of the Year this year! He also ended the 10 year domination of Cristiano and Messi winning the Ballon D’Or. Cris came in 2nd in the voting and Messi 5th. I have to say, it’s refreshing for someone else to get a look in. And that’s not to say that they didn’t deserve their wins – they did. But there are so many tremendous players out there. It’s just nice to see them being appreciated.
