James Rodriguez teaches Ronaldo how to dance

imageThere are few things Cristiano Ronaldo can’t do on the football field, but there is one thing missing from Ronaldo’s vast skill set - dancing. 

Yup, for all his prowess in front of goal, his celebrations usually lack in creativity. But now that World Cup dancing sensation James Rodriguez is in town, that’s about to change.

In fact, it looks like the Colombian star has already begun teaching CR7 some moves:

Alvaro Arbeloa shows up to training in Morgan 3-wheeler

You can go ahead and mark Real Madrid defender Alvaro Arbeloa down as one of the most tasteful car owners in professional sports.

While most of today’s stars opt for flashy Ferraris, bombastic Bentleys or luxurious Lamborghinis, Arbeloa showed up to practice on Wednesday in a brand-new Morgan 3-Wheeler!

The British-made “tricycle car” can reach top speeds of up to 125 mph and starts at around $44,000, a fraction of what teammates Ronaldo, Bale or Sergio Ramos likely dished out for their sets of wheels. None, however, are half as cool as Arbeloa’s.

Another line of work: Real Madrid players try to play American football

Things that Xabi Alonso, Sergio Ramos, Gareth Bale, Luka Modric and the rest of Real Madrid are good at:

  • Shooting soccer balls
  • Passing soccer balls
  • Heading soccer balls
  • Running a lot

Unfortunately for the team, only one of those skills translates to American football, and it showed when they took the field in Michigan:

Not only did the boys toss the pigskin around a bit, they tried their hands at a few plays as well. It certainly wasn’t the prettiest athletic endeavor we’ve ever seen, but they look like they’re having a blast.

It’s the effort that counts, fellas.

Luka Modric cuts his flowing locks after winning Champions League

Aside from starring in Real Madrid’s midfield, Luka Modric is perhaps best known for his bouncing, flowing locks. He’s been rocking the “long hair, don’t care” look for as long as we can remember, and it suits him quite well:

But no one realized just how much his hair ‘made’ his look until he went and chopped it all off!

No. Just, no Luka. This was a mistake. Take it back. Take it back!

Yes, that is a grown adult next to Arbeloa. (Image: Modric’s Facebook)

What in the world led Modric to undergo this appalling transformation?

Apparently, the Croatia star had promised Real teammate Arvalo Arbeloa that he would get a new hairstyle if they won the Champions League. He didn’t wait long to make good on that promise, chopping his hair off the day after Real won the coveted trophy.

You would think that the man who also cuts Cristiano Ronaldo’s hair could’ve given Modric a better look! Let’s just hope his hair grows quickly.

Fan at Bernabeu viewing party captures reaction to Sergio Ramos’ goal

Thank you, Internet!

Sergio Ramos’ dramatic late equalizer in the Champions League final has been replayed countless of times by now, but you haven’t seen it like this. Footage of that moment has emerged from Real Madrid’s official viewing party at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium, and it is truly EPIC.

Watch 85,000+ explode all at once:

Strangely, we haven’t been able to locate any footage of the same moment from the Vicente Calderon viewing party, but we imagine it would look something like this:

Ronaldo scores Zlatan-esque monster goal for Real Madrid

Here’s your weekly Cristiano Ronaldo highlight that makes you forget to breathe for a moment. What a goal!

Ronaldo gave Real Madrid an injury time equalizer against Valencia with this ridiculous backheel kick, but unfortunately, time ran out on Real as they were looking to make up more ground in the title race.

In a righteous world, this goal should just automatically give Real Madrid the title. What’s that, Atletico? You have more points than Real? Sorry, overruled. Ronaldo’d.
