Someone Told Kaka He Won the Golden Ball. Maybe.By: Martha | November 24th, 2007
According to reports in the always reliable Italian media, Ricky Kaka has already been unofficially informed that the Golden Ball will be his. Apparently his margin of victory was so great that an unnamed jury member called the Brazilian up and told him, figuring there was no point in hiding the truth from a man who kicked Zlatan’s and (The Pretty) Ronaldo’s and Pirlo’s and Riquelme’s asses soon comprehensively. Or something.
If this story turns out to be true, it’ll come as no surprise to anyone, obviously. Of course, last year the early rumors told us that Gigi Buffon was the man, and we all know how reliable those turned out to be.
The ceremony will be held December 2, but we should know mostly officially before then, because Official Photographers will turn up at Kaka’s house to take picture of him with the trophy ahead of time, and the paparazzi who live in his bushes will get the whole thing on camera. (if this has already happened and they missed it, they’re all freaking fired.)
