Lionel Messi: soccer superstar and megalomaniac real estate hoarder? You be the judge below, in the case of the Spanish Estate That Nobody Wanted.
Leo Messi, Argentinian soccer player for Barcelona, is so good that he needs his own adjective. His coach apparently didn’t know how to describe him anymore. So now Messi has an adjective in a Spanish dictionary. The weird details, after the jump.
Today In Pitch-Crashers: A Fan Ran Onto The Field, Kissed Lionel Messi On The Forehead And Ruffled His Hair
Argentina and Sweden played an international friendly today with the South Americans coming out on top 3-2, but not before another fan sought out Lionel Messi on the pitch. This guy was particularly friendly and adoring, planting a kiss on his forehead, ruffling his hair and surrendering to security without incident. Messi took the whole thing in stride, probably because he’s a grizzled field-rusher veteran these days, though he did take a moment to re-style his hairdo. Priorities in a close match, obviously.
Note: Even If You Run Onto The Field Just To Hug A Player, You Will Be Treated Like Any Other Field Rusher
Look, I’m not gonna sit here, lie to you, and say I don’t get the urge to hug Lionel Messi. It’s like wanting to hug a puppy. Look at him: the boyish joy. The elven frame.

Lionel Messi Got Carted Off The Pitch With A Knee Injury, Scared The Crap Out Of Soccer Fans Everywhere
FC Barcelona’s match against Benfica today looked inconsequential enough on paper that coach Tito Vilanova rested several starters. One player he didn’t rest? The world’s greatest talent, Lionel Messi. Now, though, Vilanova’s probably wishing he had – Messi went down with a knee injury.
Barcelona wasn’t having its best day. Midway through the second half of its Champions League matchup against Spartak Moscow, Barca found itself down 2-1. Was an upset in the making? Well… no. And to no one’s surprise, the world’s best player finished the job for the favorites.
Real Madrid and FC Barcelona are playing right now. Real’s up 2-1 in the second half, so it’s still anyone’s match, and these next 40 or so minutes should provide some pretty compelling soccer. After the jump, though, appreciate what the world’s best players have already given us.
