You know, that Cristiano Ronaldo guy is pretty good at sports.
Regarded by many as the second-best soccer player in the world—with plenty of arguments for being the best—and easily one of the most popular athletes on the globe, the Real Madrid superstar got a chance to try his hand at baseball.
Cristiano Ronaldo's first, first pitch attempt. Second was a strike down the pipe. First was: https://t.co/KdbZdMiWXD— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) August 1, 2013
And as you can see in the video above, he wasn't very accurate.
Of course, the pre-first-pitch festivities might have been more entertaining.
First, the Dodgers' Twitter account gives us a look at the Portugal international looking slightly awkward—yet successful—in the batting cages:
But wait. It gets better. Ronaldo also showed off his juggling skills with none other than Dodgers phenom Yasiel Puig, a big fan who also caught the first pitch.
ESPN's Roger Bennett gives us a look at the two superstars having a little bit of fun:
It doesn't really get much better than that, does it?
But wait. Before nearly setting the Internet on fire by juggling with one of the game's most popular youngsters, Ronaldo took a picture with none other than Samuel L. Jackson:
Look who's throwing the first pitch tonite! I'm rocking the Dodger lineup! pic.twitter.com/IK6AW0YIug— Samuel L. Jackson (@SamuelLJackson) August 1, 2013
Getting to see Ronaldo throw a baseball, hit a baseball (thank god, for us normal folk, that there's at least one thing he doesn't look like a natural doing) juggle a baseball with Yasiel Puig and take a picture with Mr. Snakes on a Plane himself is just a quartet of awesomeness.
My week is complete.
