Ronaldo: Player and Young Player of the Year?

Ronaldo has made the short list of the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year. Yeah. He's that good. Granted, he is somewhat of a pretty boy who tends to dive and hold his ankle in pain after getting hit in the shoulder, but I have a hard time holding that against a guy who can make the ball dance like he does (see below). Fabregas made both lists as well...I have a tough time thinking he'll win over the others in the list.

This is Ronaldo warming up. I had to watch it 5 times before I even started to understand some of what he was doing in the first 15 seconds of this clip. Unreal. It's worth embedding the big player so that you can see it better.

I tried to do that in a dream once...and broke my ankle...granted he is always on the ball, practicing, but some of his instinctual movements you just can't teach.
