The world (and Twitter) almost exploded over the weekend after Wayne Rooney’s epic goal, but we’re on to another story already. Brazilian superstar Ronaldo – he of 414 goals in 611 matches – will retire at the age of 34.
His fans are coming out to honor the amazing talent. Steve Nash tweeted to express his disappointment and gratitude. Rio Ferdinand did as well. The Telegraph remembers the time Old Trafford gave him a standing ovation for his exploits. The Guardian‘s Sid Lowe recalls a wonderful interview from 2003.
Who’s the best footballer in the world?
Of all time, PelÃ© [Small Talk reflects - mentally - on just how good 'PelÃ©' sounds when said by a Brazilian rather than a wrong-letter-stressing Englishman]. Right now? … Not including me … Zizou. [And including you? Small Talk ponders]. Well, me along with Zizou.
And then there was that goal against Compostela. Defenders won’t be sad to see him go.
Twenty years ago, Hulk Hogan was every kid’s hero as he told us to say our prayers and take our vitamins.
Now, Hogan hopes to lay down the law with kids between 8-to-12-years old in a new television show as a “larger-than-life judge” called Hogan’s Court.
The show, currently in development, is described as a live-action game show for kids to settle those everyday disputes they encounter around the house. Producers are planning to have 26 half-hour episodes for the first season.
For those still looking to catch Hogan in the ring, he signed with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling in 2009 and serves as a de facto general manager.
“I am really looking forward to developing such an entertaining series with great production partners,” Hogan said in a statement. “We want this to be one of those rare shows that kids and their families can watch together, and all find something to laugh about.”
