If Messi keeps this up I am sure there will be nutters who will think he can walk on water. Honestly though, the kid is ripping some of the best defenses in the world apart. He is on fire ala Michael Jordan only in soccer. I really DO hope he can keep it up because it is only going to cause the sport more sensation.

By the way, the MLS action this weekend was fast paced and fun to watch. The Union vs DC game had everything in it. Now it would be a dream to see a Messi in MLS.

Well i can't complain, Barca won fair and square although they could have had a couple more and Real had several chances they should have put away (i'm talking about you Van de Vaart). Guti should have started as well, and they should have began the game with 2 strikers, then again they probably would have given up more goals, their D is pretty bad. Can't wait til this coach is gone, Mourinho or Benetiz?

Oh, and I really hope all the Messi lovers out there watched this game. Yeah, he's awesome but you know who created both goals and put another one on a platter for Messi that he blew? Xavi! He's amazing. Looked much better in this game than Messi (who was a little lucky the one he did finish) and the only reason Barca won the game. Oh how I hate him, but i'm also extremely glad he'll be playing for Spain come summer.
