Cristiano Ronaldo Or 'The Situation'? New Yorker Can't Tell

Cristiano Ronaldo may be one of the most recognizable soccer players in the world, but one New Yorker could not distinguish him from a different sort of celebrity. The New York Post reports that a restaurant-goer confused the Portuguese superstar with The Situation, the Jersey Shore reality TV personality.

"Oh, my God, it's The Situation!" a diner reportedly said as the former FIFA World Player of the Year strolled into the restaurant. Apparently Ronaldo's newborn son is not enough to inform the confused fan.
