Shirtless Cristiano Ronaldo Pictures Overshadow Spitting Incident?

8

Shirtless Ronaldo Vanity FairCristiano Ronaldo proved he can shoot more than soccer balls when he spit at a cameraman after Portugal's loss to Spain in the World Cup -- while the camera was on. 

The Armani model and de facto hottie to watch in these games has become the hothead to watch with his antics on the pitch.

But while all the serious sports reporters are betting his spitting incident will hurt the Portuguese player's reputation, the most in demand pics of Ronaldo aren't of him being an ass -- they're OF his ass. 

And his abs.

Shirtless Ronaldo remains a hot keyword -- check out the 50 Shirtless Pictures of Cristiano Ronaldo on Buzzfeed and let us know how far the drool dripped.

Or how about the Vanity Fair cover that rocked the world -- and remains our favorite of all time (sorry Angelina!).

And can we take another look at those Armani photos, laid out for us so kindly by the Ronaldo team on his Facebook?

My husband put this picture on his Facebook last week -- to prove a point in an argument we were having (yes, he's both secure enough in his manhood to have a half-naked man on his Facebook to allow his wife to ogle AND to wear pink) -- and I didn't notice anyone calling him naughty in the "bad person" way.

OK, enough of the sexiness. Er, sexism.

Ronaldo's last Facebook post got no less than 18,456 comments -- many of which were a shot in the arm, many of which were from his female fans (the men were not nearly as nice). 

He's got the foot to be more than just a pretty face, but right now, it's the latter that seems to matter.

Good thing -- because Portugal is out of the World Cup. The only way they'll remain a topic of conversation is if Ronaldo keeps taking his shirt off.
