El SUPER Clásico: Messi’s Comeback, Ramos’ Unpunished Penalty, & Valdés Loses His Cool

3 Mar

Last night, my crush asked me out on an early hiking date this morning. How dare he! I could not believe he didn’t remember that this morning (in my time zone) we had not only any Clásico, but El SUPER Clásico. I mean, how can anybody on Earth forget? This is a special kind of Clásico because it is a La Liga Clásico. It is not one of the Copa del Rey or the Champions League. This is the real deal. As always, we had our players breaking records, shooting great goals, and a very special instance of drama that cannot be overlooked. I’m very excited to write this post.

Today is such a wonderful day. Although it’s pouring here in San Diego, I am in my house, lying cozily with an FC Barcelona v. AC Milan Champions League 2011 rerun airing in Fox Deportes in the background. It would be complete ingratitude from by part I asked more from life. And, the programming says that the 2012 rerun will air after this one is over. Of course it is all about Barcelona v. Milan today. Why? Well, only because Barça and Milan will meet for the 16th time today in the first leg of the last 16 in the 2012-2013 Champions League. So, if you are watching Fox Deportes, prepare to have a Barcelona v. Milan overdose today. Personally, I will take that overdose any day. Thank you, Fox Deportes. FYI, Fox Deportes is airing the 2012-2013 Champions League in Spanish. It is also airing the Copa Libertadores. Therefore, you Spanish speakers out there, get the channel ASAP!!!!

Some psychologists believe that past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior. I have not really analyzed that tenet, but just in case, let’s take a look at the history of Barça/Milan to see if we catch any trends and form an idea of tonight’s victor/score. Let’s also look at some details of tonight’s clash in San Siro, Italy.

Look at Piqué about to do the walk of shame.

Wait a minute, did it really happen?! Uh, yes it did. That’s right. Barcelona lost. For the first time this season. Against #9 Real Sociedad. That in itself earns an 10 in the scale of stiletto height.
