Video: The Unkindness Of Lionel Messi

This is the height, literally.

Some things stay with you forever, some others stay with you and give you chills forever. Lionel Messi’s second goal against Bayern Munich in Barcelona’s 3-0 ruination of the German champions last night belongs in the second category.

In one devilishly slick move, the legend (shh, no argument now) effectively destroyed Jerome Boateng’s good name as a defender and made world-class goalkeeper Manuel Neuer look like a miserable figurehead between the posts. It was a new kind of wickedness, traumatising on several levels, yet delightful to watch. We’re all sadists now, deriving pleasure from the pain of others. And we’re not sorry.
