Apropos of nothing (ie international week), here are some great videos of Lionel Messi on the Internet. This first one above is perhaps the most intensely beautiful football video on the Internet: all of Messi’s goals between 2005 and 2012.

This is president Obama comparing himself to Messi. Which is pretty egotistical on Obama’s part.

Here’s an intriguing 60 Minutes segment on Messi that gives a little background on the school that formed him and others on Barcelona: La Masia Academy.

And more personally, here’s a vid on how Messi came to be.

Just a small microcosm of the skill the man is capable of.

Here’s Messi washing his face wearing a white-collared shirt. Red card.

If you have any more good ones, send him over and I’ll chuck them in.
