¡Feliz Cumpleaños a la Pulga!

24 Jun

In case you are unaware, today is Lionel’s 23rd birthday. Let’s pause and think about that for a little…   …..   ……  ……  23 years. 23!!!!  It doesn’t even look like he’s finished puberty yet!

The young Rosario phenom who left his home as a child to take on the world, has not ceased to amaze. Drawing comparisons to Maradona and the like, Messi has thrilled and left journalists with little words to describe him.  I could go on forever about this kid but I know you only care about one thing. So with that, let’s celebrate the life of the best player on this planet with highlights upon highlights upon hightlights.

There are montages here, here, and here.  Don’t forget the 4 he threw down on Arsenal this past season. Or the hat trick against Real Madrid. Um, do you remember this little guy against Getafe? He also scored a bunch of hat tricks in about 2 weeks this past Spring.

I leave you to the professionals for an incredible life story. The trials and tribulations of leaving home and taking flack from his countrymen. 

Happy birthday Lionel. Here’s to many many more years in a Barcelona shirt. Visca la Pulga!
