Viva Ronaldo.
« on: March 06, 2012, 12:48:27 pm »
I've just had my first actual discussion with the Korean kids.  Yesterday all I got them to do was repeat and read sentences, and it seemed like the only 'Soccer' player they knew was Ji Sung Park.  In today's 6th grade class though, I managed to have a debate about who was the best footballer in the world.  I told them it was obviously Ronaldo, demonstrating with one hand where Messi was and the other hand above it where Ronaldo was, a lot of them disagreed, most thought Messi was better, one though Rooney and one thought Benzema.

My 6 graders always say it's Ronaldo and Messi no one else.  They also say that Messi isn't the best though because he's short and Ronaldo might be better if he didn't drink as much beer. 
The reasoning here is flawless.

Even if he was the "best in the world", Ronaldo should never be given respect or a title due to his behavior.

Get some sportmanship then I'll pay attention.  Or you know... some modesty...
