You knew it was a matter of time but Cristiano Ronaldo scored his first two goals in Serie A.

After going through a mini scoring drought which for Cristiano Ronaldo is big news, an easy tip from in front of the net sent Allianz Arena into incredible jubilation. It hasn’t been for a lack of opportunities or hard work that he had not scored a goal officially for Juventus in his Serie A games but the longer this lasted the more questions would have arisen about his age and if he had possibly lost a step.

The Serie A is a more defensive minded league which is also a possibility of why the scoring hasn’t come as frequent or as easy as CR7 has been accustomed to.

His first goal came off a corner in the 50th minute which he tapped the ball easily into the net as there seemed to be some confusion between the defender and Sassuolo goalkeeper. The cross came in and as the ball found the defensive Sassuolo player he seemed to want to head the ball back to the keeper but it ended off going off the post where Cristiano was waiting and was finally able to get the monkey off his back. The celebration was emotional for him as you would assume the more time went on the more pressure he was feeling to show his worth to the Juve fans.

In the 65th minute in which was pure Ronaldo , he used his speed to get open on a counter attack and was able to place another past the keeper with his left foot in the lower corner to get his second goal of the game and put Juventus ahead for good. An extra time goal by Sassuolo couldn’t dampen the fact that the fans have been waiting this season to see the infamous Ronaldo celebration in a Juve jersey.

With the brace Cristiano Ronaldo has now reached 400 career goals, in his time with Sporting,  Manchester United,  Real Madrid and Juventus.

Juventus is currently in first place and has yet to lose a game this season with 12 points.

America’s Largest Amateur League Shines in Baseball’s “Lost Season”

2020 will forever be remembered as baseball’s lost season. The sport was shattered due to the COVID-19 pandemic virus outbreak. Baseball fans were out of luck this summer as they were entirely restricted from attending any professional or semi-pro live games. Watching on television or live stream wasn’t much better. Most of the MLB season was cancelled including the pre-season, the much anticipated Iowa Field of Dreams game, Puerto Rico series, London Series and All...

IPL: Mumbai Indians Lose Season Opener

Mumbai Indians lost an Indian Premier League (IPL) opener for the 8th successive year following a 5-wicket loss to Chennai Super Kings.

However, ex Mumbai Indians player Ambati Rayudu and South African superstars Faf du Plessis and Lungi Ngidi ensured that it didn’t...

When Did Formula One Begin?

If you ask virtually anyone the world over a simple question – “What is Formula One” they will probably get the answer correct.  It’s a car race!  Even though that might be a very simple reply (a better answer would be it’s the highest class of international single-seater auto-racing!) there is another question that will probably stump them.  That question is “When did Formula One begin?”. In order to answer the question properly we need...

The Cleveland Browns Are Looking Up

The Cleveland Browns have a team that had a ton of questions this year. They came into the game against the Bengals unsure of how they were going to get their offense going. While the Bengals aren't at all a good defense, it's still hard to play those divisional games and win. The AFC North is known for brutally cold weather that makes it nearly impossible to stay sharp, yet they were sharp offensively....

The Case For Rocky Marciano

You wouldn't think, not even for a second, that you would have to defend a world champion boxer who retired with an unblemished record of 49-0 (43 KO's), but if it's Rocky Marciano we're talking about then yep, he needs to be defended. It's ridiculous, but true. Marciano seems to have as many naysayers as he does fans. "He was too small", "He never fought anybody in their prime", "He'd get killed today"; etc....
