Here's a sign sported by some enthusiastic Spaniards before yesterday's Euro 2012 semifinal between Spain and Portugal and aired on ESPN before the match. It reads, basically, "Cristiano go fuck yourself, Froilán the Golden Boot."

The "go fuck yourself" part is funny enough, but the bottom part of the message is interesting; Froilán is King Juan Carlos's grandson, who a few months ago shot himself in the foot with a shotgun. The Golden Boot, of course, is the prize awarded to the tournament's leading scorer. It's unclear how literally the message should be read, or if the colloquialism "shot himself in the foot" exists in Spanish, but it didn't much matter anyway. Ronaldo never even got the chance to shoot, and Spain advanced to the final.
