Sorry, not the review, but that’s Euler territory anyway. And you can’t rush greatness.
Anyway, I was working on the Barca alphabet [which I give a teaser of below] and I was planning to use the video below to show how irresistible the call to wilderness is for Puyol, but as I was watching it, I almost forgot all about the potential comedic effect. [Though, I definitely lol’d every time I saw Puyi standing alone in the forest and field]. It made me feel so many things. So many happy things. The only depressing part was them constantly showing the fourth cousins together, in their Masia days. And Xavi and Messi’s injuries. 🙁
Note: at the beginning of the video BarcaTV uses Pep’s comments to refer to the whole team, as a good lead in to the video, but in that specific presser he was talking about Iniesta. He says, and I’m paraphrasing, that Iniesta is an example to the younger generation, the Masia players. He doesn’t dye his hair, doesn’t wear earrings and hasn’t got any tattoos. He never complains and not only does he play for the team, but he always plays well (in general) at that. People like him are priceless.
And now for the teaser:
C is for Captain Carles
The vine swinging central defending artisan,
Who I am sure role plays as a Catalan Tarzan.
He has heart, he has luscious curly locks,
but most of all, he’s a master at those timely blocks.
At 34, some wonder how long he’s last for,
Which I ruefully shake me head at, senor.
Because he’ll be our Maldini forevermore,
Until he can resist the call to wilderness no more,
In which case he’ll be inducted into Barca forklore.
The indomitable Puyi,
El Capitia of yore.
