Sergio Ramos serenades girlfriend on TV, makes all other boyfriends look bad

What is it with soccer stars surprising their ladyfriends on TV and bringing them to tears?

Real Madrid star Sergio Ramos, who has never been afraid to showcase his harmonious side, came up with the great idea to surprise his girlfriend on national TV with a nice little ditty seen above.

Pilar Rubio, Ramos’ girlfriend and guest on the show “El Hormiguero,” couldn’t contain herself when Casanova himself came out crooning with guitar in hand.

The oldest celebrity trick in the book, but it works every time. Don’t hate the player, hate the game.

Real Madrid star Sergio Ramos mixes up NBA team cities


As the Spanish national team prepare for their match vs. Haiti at Miami’s Sun Life Stadium, the defending European champions were able to take in Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat.

For the record, the San Antonio Spurs defeated the Miami Heat on Thursday night. We’ll cut the Real Madrid superstar some slack, after all, English isn’t his first language. To his credit, he immediately deleted the post and corrected himself. Still, there are many questions that need to be answered, such as:

1) Why is Ramos such a big Heat fan?

2) Why does Ramos have a LeBron James jersey and no pants on in his Twitter background?


3) Why is there someone in a banana suit trying to get autographs from the defending World Cup champ?



Real Madrid star Sergio Ramos shows off his skills on the football field, but not the kind we’re used to seeing him play on. Check out this 53-yard punt. Impressive.
