Check out what Lionel Messi is wearing to the ceremony for the World Player of the Year, otherwise known as the FIFA Ballon d’Or award. Yes, it’s quite a jacket – a black jacket with white polka dots and a bowtie to match, but Messi can really wear whatever he wants and it’s nice to see him having a bit of fun. Call it what you will, a blazer, a tuxedo, a jacket, the man can really wear a polka dot t-shirt if he feels like he had such an amazing year in football / soccer.
Maybe there’s a white dot for every goal he’s scored this past year for Barcelona! Or at least a white dot for every goal he was involved in with Barcelona and Argentina.
And of course Messi won his fourth FIFA Ballon d’Or award – fourth in a row at that. Maybe next year he’ll just wear his James Dean t-shirt.
