AC Milan superstars, Ronaldinho and Clarence Seedorf, landed in Montreal last evening in preparation of the game they are playing this Wednesday against the Montreal Impact.

The two football/soccer players quickly got out of the plane and into a bus that was taking them to their hotel, but I did manage to squeeze in a few questions to Ronaldinho about the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

Ronaldinho is going through some rough times and was not selected by coach Dunga to be on the Brazil roster this year. Now, I understand Montreal is no South Africa, but that didn’t keep Little Ronaldo from licking his lips à la D’Angelo at 0:38 – which I interpret as a non-verbal sign of content.

As for Seedorf, his wish is to see at least one African team in the World Cup finals. Yay Seedorf! I’m with you on that one.

AC Milan is playing against the Montreal Impact on June 2, at the Olympic Stadium. Now I can assure you…with all the Italians, Portuguese, Brazilian, Spanish, French and African people living in Montreal, the atmosphere at this game is just going to be crazy.

As Joey Saputo, owner of the Montreal Impact, so nicely told me: “A lot of the international teams are starting to see that Montreal is a great soccer market. If they could promote their brand in North Amercia through Montreal then why not? That’s exactly what AC is trying to do”.

Well, AC Milan, if it means you’re going to bring sexy Brazilians and Italians to my city, I’ve got 4 words for you: promote as you want.
