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.
Bayern Munich upset Barcelona, 4-0, in a Champions League semifinal first leg on Monday, but mostly what they’re all talking about today is Barcelona’s Jordi Alba throwing the ball into the face of Bayern’s Arjen Robben. Awesome move, or poor form?

Leo Messi notched his 85th and 86th goals of the calendar year Sunday in Barcelona’s 2-1 victory over Real Betis, tying and breaking Gerd Muller’s 85-goal single-year record set back in 1972.

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.
This is Barcelona’s version of a Blake Griffin dunk compilation. Messi has scored a record-setting 72 goals so far this season for the club, and the season’s not even over: he has one more La Liga match, plus the Copa del Rey final. 75 is well within reach. [101 Great Goals, via Richard Deitsch]
In the first leg of the Champions League semi-final between the Premier League’s Chelsea and La Liga’s Barcelona, this awesome goal was the difference in a 1-0 win for the underdog Blues. Didier Drogba put it away, but he was the recipient of some beautiful passing. Video after the jump.
