Cristiano Ronaldo and Alex Rodriguez– soccer and baseball–there are no two other iconic athletes that have transcended their sports and have become symbols of a generation as much as these men have. As modern legends within and outside of their professions, these iconic celebrities are the uncontested ambassadors of their sports.

There are no two sports as wildly popular within their respective countries as soccer and baseball.  These men have transcended the boundaries of their sports to gain worldwide attention because of their superior athletic ability and the attention they receive from the world’s most beautiful women.

The Portugese heartthrob, Cristiano Ronaldo, has become an ambassador to the sport by dominating on the field. His chiseled features and reputation for being a true ladies man only add to the mystique of this media darling. When we daydream of being a professional soccer star, it is clearly not because we fantasize of running the length of the field for 90 minutes, but rather because we want to be like Rinaldo–fantastically rich, athletically superior, and born to grace the covers of Vanity Fair.

It would appear to be impossible to surpass Ronaldo in terms of popularity on and off the field. However, New York’s pride and joy, Alex Rodriguez, does just that. As captain and world champion several times over with the New York Yankees, A-Rod has become synonymous with American success. Alex Rodriguez has continued to be a household name and tabloid celebrity for the last decade.

In hopes to understand which athlete is truly more capable of drawing the attention of the world’s finest women, we present the facts:

The Dream Girl

Cameron Diaz (Rodriguez)

Irina Shayk (Ronaldo)

Winner: Alex Rodriguez – Although on paper these two women seem to match up in terms of their beauty, there is something about Irina Shayk’s personality that comes off as very cold and uninviting. Cameron Diaz has a proven track record of being an amazing person and she has that infectious smile that we’ve grown quite accustomed to over the years. We simply cannot resist her. We’ve been hooked since There’s Something About Mary.

The Washed Up Blonde

Torrie Wilson (Rodriguez)

Paris Hilton (Ronaldo)

Winner: Tie – Torrie Wilson or Paris Hilton? We’d rather opt out on this one. While Wilson does boast a colorful career in professional wrestling and is clearly more talented than Paris Hilton, we still cannot understand why a man who has dated such amazing women in the past would settle for a D-lister. Paris Hilton, on the other hand, is not the woman you want on your resume. Any links to this woman and it is almost inevitable that you have contracted something along the way. This one is a draw.

The Inconceivable Regret

Bethany Frankel (Rodriguez)

Kim Kardashian (Ronaldo)

Winner: Tie — Yet again, these two legendary men have reached far below their potential. Rotten apples or rotten grapes, anyone? Either way, a relationship with either of these two women will surely end sour. Although we resepect the fact that they are self-made reality TV entrepreneurs and have been quite successful in life, we really could not fathom having to spend quality time with these women.

The Deal Breaker

Madonna (Rodriguez)

Winner: Alex Rodriguez — The icon & the legend, the one and only, Madonna. Although she isn’t known for her angelic ways, Madonna is the definition of good PR on any man’s resume. Dating her will only legitimize your charisma for the rest of your life and ensures that women will come flocking to you from around the globe.

_________________________________________

Decision: Alex Rodriguez – A-Rod comes through by a long shot. Not only because he’s exhibited his great taste in women and true ability to court some of the world’s finest leading ladies in entertainment, but also because he has done so with class. The quality of his press is superb and he stands as true role model for men across the world.
