Messi To Win Ballon d'Or?
Right now Lionel Messi is sweeping up the competition in our poll, with almost about 27% of the votes going his way! In the first couple of days, there were many votes for Cristiano Ronaldo, but now the tide has slowly evened out to Messi.
Behind Messi is Cristiano Ronaldo with about 20% of the votes. I don't think he's going to win it this year, especially because of his mediocre performance in the World Cup.
And following the two wingers we have Wesley Sneijder, with about 15% of the votes. I think that the Dutch midfielder is the worthy winner for this year's award, having guided Inter to the treble, and then he helped the Netherlands all the way to the World Cup final! In my opinion Sneijder deserves the award.
So I hope you vote in the poll if you haven't already, and here's a funny little blog that I'm running as a little project, it's Poetry about soccer. It's titled Poetry Wrap Up because I couldn't think of a better name, and so far I've done a little haiku about soccer, along with two poems about Barcelona and Real Madrid. So if you're an artistically inclined fan of the beautiful game, or you've got some time to burn, check out Poetry Wrap Up for soccer poems.
And a last random link/video for you to check out! Watch this video below showing the latest Brazilian samba move called, "The Broken Step". It's half elastico, half chop, but to understand it you should see it yourself.
