Leo Messi: The Unstoppable Vex Machine

Any suggestions as to how opposition teams are going to stop Leo Messi from scoring? He bagged yet another hat-trick against Brazil in a friendly Saturday night, conjuring up GianLuca Vialli’s jest about curtailing Thierry Henry’s pitch prowess from years ago in our headsĀ (as well as his famed mustached/bearded baby face).

If Messi had to, could he play in flip flops? With his legs tied together? Drunk?

Or do you think any and all attempts to prevent Leo from making several deposits in the goal bank each week would be futile?

One more, why not: how long can he keep this up until Antonella gets wind of his stockpile’s spendable-at-the-shops currency conversion rates (exclusively offered for priority bank customers only)?

    That match was fantastic! It was a joy seeing Messi play, and even better watching him be so happy with his own performance and his team's. Great to see the team gelling together and playing better. Not to take anything away from the Argentinian team, but they were facing a much less experienced opposition and they won by only one extra goal. Having said that, what a superb goal it was too! How fast does Messi run by the way, has anyone timed him?? He's such an adorable little package of a man…squeeeeeaaaalllll!

    One day I will be able to tell my kids that I watched this little genius not just play soccer, but take it to a whole other level. It just doesn't get better than Messi. And to think he hasn't even hit his prime yet. The best is yet to come!!

    He's simply the best. I've said that a million times. I'd like to see him play drunk. I bet he would be giggling a lot and try to hug anyone who comes near him. He would still score goals though.
