We Said Good Things About Messi, Right?

I think we did sing the praises of Lionel Messi back in the day (by back in the day, I mean about 8 months ago).

Argentina benched him against Germany in the World Cup. Given the way he's been fucking La Liga, it is possible that the Argentinians have been second-guessing that decision. But of course, it would be easy to say, "Hey, a lot of his goals in La Liga have been keyed by some pretty incredible play by Ronaldhino, Tiger Wood's Lesbian Cousin.

That may be valid for some of his goals this year, but take a look at this one, which I became aware of via the Best Hard News Soccer Blog (we love you, Sanford).

This goal is all Messi, and a little shoddy defense--but all the same, this goal is just one man against the world.

If you haven't seen it, enjoy.
