“I’m in the mood for goals ….”

Prithee, fair damsel! I have just scored a goal!

So, of all the bizarre things that can be attributed to our beloved club and our very own Andres Iniesta, an increase in the birth rate?

This week, Barcelona hospitals have seen a 45% increase in the birth rates. How ’bout that? They have gone from 9 or 10 deliveries per day, to 14-15.

Now, when he scored the “Iniestazo,” I wanted to scream, and cry and run around the room, for sure. Apparently people had other ideas.

Not sure what else to say, except keep it clean, people. News post coming later.

      Wow; sheds a whole new light on Jorquera’s falling out of the picture, doesn’t it?

    I think I’d like to see how many children were named Andres, or have the last name of Iniesta because of the goal?

    I’m sure that’s had to increase as well.

      I’m sure loads of people got named ‘just’ Iniesta as well.
      Like that poor kid who got named R2D2…

    Wait, are you saying the increase in the birth rate was solely due to Iniesta? He has more game than we thought, indeed. The telling factor will be how many of these babies exhibit male pattern baldness in 15 years.
