In European soccer, fans throwing bananas onto the field is old, tired, and unoriginal. Players these days are so unimpressed that they’re just eating them.
They’re almost identical. Both artisinally crafted free kicks from roughly the same distance, bent around a wall, off the post and in. But this is America. No ties (except at work or grandpa’s funeral). Watch ‘em both and help us pick which one was better, after the jump.
Barcelona Won La Liga! Here’s Them Celebrating, Drunk, On A Bus. Set To “Hey Ya.” (UPDATE: One Teammate Slapped Another In The Face!)
Barcelona won La Liga! That means they won “the league!” Here’s them, including that one short guy you know, Lionel Messi, drinking a few too many (read: just the right amount!) of alcohols, on a bus. Unquestionably, Outkast is the greatest Spanish band of the 21st century.

And now, dissatisfied with Barca’s direction, he might be interested in reclaiming that post. While Laporta has some vocal support in his corner, though, it might not be the kind that will actually help him to one day lead Barcelona again – because that support is from a porn star. See it above.
