Ronaldo Gets All Up in Joe Jackson's Grill

11/1/2009 2:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It's the oddest pairing since Liza Minnelli and David Gest got married in 2002: Michael Jackson's father Joe and soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo are now teaming up to sell grills.

Ronaldo Gets All Up in Joe Jackson's Grill

Joe Jackson tells TMZ he's got a stake in a company called GAME ON PRODUCTS and is preparing to peddle soccer ball grills during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Joe says he's flying out to meet Ronaldo at the beginning of December, when the odd couple will shoot TV, magazine and Internet advertisements for the "Goalie Grill."

So, in conclusion: If you've been looking for a BBQ shaped like a soccer ball and endorsed by a world famous athlete and the father of Michael Jackson ... this is the one for you!

No wonder MJJ didn't wish him any longer in any of his later business dealings also Joe in later years was always hitting MJJ up for money due to failed business deals and Joe J filled chapter 13, MJJ had to step in there to save the family home. Seems he never stopped ridding MJJ's back.
I also know for a fact what I am not buying LMAO

quiet..mj always did that in concert after singing jackson five songs .he did love his family ,thats why he left his mom the money, he knew she would help his family .i dont know how old you are but it is natural in life to rebel against parents and not always get along with siblings.trouble is the piblic sees little snippets of a moment and it is all we see.he loved them , he was just avoiding them sometimes because he had been wounded by life and wrold opinion and was self medicating .he knew they wouldnt approve..love my mike

On the subject of forgiveness, we are told to "go to the person we sinned against" and "ask to be forgiven of our poor actions". Other wise the act of true forgiveness is not complete in our higher power's eye or mind. So tell me at what point in Michael Jackson's life did Joe Jackson ever go to him, tell Michael how much he loved him, embraced him in any of his human form, gifts or flaws included and to please forgive Joe for all the wrong done to him by Joe all his life? Yes Michael forgave and gave it to God to handle, Michael let go let God, Joe didn't according to all accounts. Joe on the other hand should have much to answer for in the end.

He is getting no father of the year award from me. Further I will not reward his past poor actions by lining his pockets now.

BTW.

Profit estimates for George Foreman's share of the George Foreman Grill run around $240 million.




So...

Good luck Joe.

When a dog is abused and beaten it too will still return, go back to stay with or beside, stand up for to protect and love the abuser abusing it unconditionally. That does not make what a abuser of life does right or to not be held one day accountable for the pain they caused to any life. Michael loved and knew what unconditional love was it is far to sad his father had nor seems to have any concept of it.

Just what I needed.
Because I have been unsatisfied with all grills up until this point, I know this Goalie Grill is the one for me.

I have fears if such a big-ticket item will perform, so I look no further than endorsements from Joe Jackson and Christiano Ronaldo. These guys know their grills. In fact, grills and grilled foods have helped make them winners.

I'll take two!

With all due respect, we probably wouldn't have even heard of MJ if it weren't for Joe's abuse and strong discipline (as strange as that is to say).

Michael seeking his father's love and acceptance drove him to great lengths. He worked hard and we see the result in his work.

We may never know MJ if his life had been different. Not to condone abuse but you know, it made Michael who he is and probably made him more sensitive to those suffering. That is, it probably shaped the Michael people know and love today.

To just blame Joe for his weaknesses and not his strengths is too simplistic of a discussion, in my opinion.

I see a pattern.
Joe Jackson attaching himself to celebrity to live vicariously through their successes.
Anyone else see it or am I being to tough on Joe?

Loud and talentless    

I just HAD to post these comments!
Fox is filling about 2 minutes of every hour advertising the "WANDA SYKES SHOW." This racist, militant, distasteful shrew has never uttered a SINGLE thing even REMOTELY humorous in her life! You put this angry, loud-mouthed idiot on a stage with liberal-whore, skank Joy Behar and people would be committing suicide by jumping off of balconies. TALENTLESS WINDBAGS ...

Michael was a drama queen.
Joe is a good father he did the best he could.
It's not easy raising 9 kids in the ghetto.
