    Any more photos like these IVO? Hah, what a player, a real joy to watch. Just a great pity his peak ended in later twenties. :(

    Do you still see Ronaldinho at some of those crazy party's you find yourself at? If you do, direct him to bigsoccer. :D

    You bet.
    Once a party animal, always a party animal.
    One reason I think his career ended prematurely.
    Will do !

    He has a house in the condominium of my cousin in Barra, Lot of cars and security hanging around. Lot of parties of course. Although I don't know how often he is actually at the house.

    The 2002 team was stacked with some of the biggest drunkards in brazilian football history. Ronaldo R9 looked hangover in the last 4 public appearances that I've seen him in. And there was also Marcos "roll down the presidential palace shitfaced" Vampeta. Adriano "cerveja com AR15 na favela" Imperador joined the group in 2006.


    nope.

    Don't let the door hit you on the way out. The 2006 team was the biggest disappointment in Selecao history to me and he was the focal point for blame.

    I don't remember him doing even 1 memorable thing of worth that entire tournament as arguably the best player on the planet at the time and only 26. That should've been his tournament to shine.

    And then to top off the embarrasing elimination vs France (Brazil could've easily lost that match 3-0) he was spotted partying the same night in Barcelona at the club.

    The only thing of worth he did IMHO in a selecao shirt was his performance vs England in 02....and even then he got sent off.

    Underachiever for Brazil and overall overrated. I don't consider him a legend (like some have called him) at all outside of his first 2 or 3 Barca years
