Ronaldinho's early days in Mexico have certainly not been lacking for entertainment value.

From the missed penalty kick in his debut in the Copa MX to the goal in his first Liga MX game, Ronaldinho has been under the spotlight since his arrival and has delivered, for better or for worse, in terms of making headlines. He was at it again in Los Gallos Blancos' latest match.

In Tuesday night's 2-1 loss to Atlas, Ronaldinho signed a pitch invader's shirt during the game with his mass appeal remaining high despite his aging and declining status among the world's most recognizable players.

Ronaldinho then brought his side within one with a trademark free kick from the edge of the area that wound up being nothing more than consolation but offered a reminder of the skills that made him the FIFA World Player of the Year in 2004 and 2005. 

Ronaldinho's countryman Kaka is getting a pretty penny to play in MLS starting next season, but Ronaldinho is sure giving Queretaro its money's worth (assuming the club is paying its players after last winter's financial fiasco) in the early going of his Mexican voyage.
