Rooney World




Click comic to ENLARGE.


Media critics have been swooning over the recent Nike advert featuring England's Wayne Rooney, Portugal's Cristiano Ronaldo, and World Cup spectator Ronaldinho, and though I think it's pretty ordinary, considering what must have been the budget, there's nice imagery of Rooney living in a trailer park, some years after an imagined Baggio-like failure on the world's biggest football stage.

I'm writing this in advance of England's do-or-die third match against Slovenia Wednesday, but if Rooney fails to score or get an assist, he will have played 523 minutes in seven World Cup matches without putting himself on the scoresheet.

Not that that will put him in any danger of trailer park living, of course ...
