Things I Like / Open Thread

This is just a partial list of things I like:

There are, of course, other things, but these two are pretty high up there at the moment.

Madrid, cabron, saluda al campeon!

Much more tomorrow, but for now, open thread in the comments. Have at it, cules.

    I like the way Puyol told Marcelo “don’t try doing that again” after nutmegging Alves.

    Thanks, Kxevin. Been waiting for it and it doesn’t disappoint.

    “Next time he puts on a wash, Piqué will find Ronaldo tumbling on to the floor as he turns out his pockets.” Been laughing for five full minutes now 🙂

      I had it in my head for a whole day, you evil man.

    • April 12, 2010

      I had it in my head in a good way. I still think it’s absurdly genius and we should make a full song out of it.

    I like that at least Barca is still kicking ass, while my first love, Liverpool, are falling on their face. =(

      She’s back!!! For a second I thought Scarlett Johanssen (or however you spell it) might have taken her place.

    I like that I will be done with school in a couple of weeks and would be able to spend more time Barthasizing

      I KNOW, Mat! Long time, no see or hear. For the uninformed, Mat is one of the few folks here to have ever met me in person, entering the gates of a Chicago exhibition match against Chivas.

      Ya Kevin, remember that game and day fondly.. my friends gave me strange looks after they saw me talking to a random person walking by into the stadium.. I told them about the blog site and everything but they were not too convinced!! 🙂

      I’ve been following the site religiously, but the comments are just too hard to follow..they are so many, the good work that you guys are doing.. should be done with the big degree at school in a couple of weeks, should be more regular after that!! cheers

    SoMa bows to JMo. About 5 of those 10 thumbs-up are from her. Click! Click! Thus inspired (and still on her 50s R&B kick):

    bojan’s brace
    and andres’ face
    pinto’s pony-tail
    a-hangin’ down
    dani never walks
    messi when he talks
    top o’ la Liga just last round
    there ain’t nothin’ bring us joy
    like a canterano boy
    make Pep wave so funny
    make Joan spend his money
    make Ray talk loose
    like Ashley at the pub
    like our club
    oh Barça that’s-a what I like!

    I like how Madridistas were flooding out even before the match ended..

    I like how we haven’t lost a Clasic since that fateful day..

    I like how Cantera brushes Cartera aside..

    And yeahh, I <3 Barça!!

    I bet that the guy from the podcast who was talking about Valdes’ “Casillas’ moment” is now praying for Casillas to have more “Valdes’ moments”

    There are so many thing I love about Barca, but mostly, it is the spirit of the team that is a joy to watch. They play as a unit and help each other out, and it is a sheer pleasure to watch that.

  13. waleed

    -Messi’s wink at crynaldo b4 the game
    -Messi grabbing the badge as he scored and P! grabbing the shirt.
    -the look on Guti’s face when he was about to enter the pitch and we scored the 2nd,
    -Millito refusing to put on the blanket as he walk away off the pitch!
    -Xavi forget all about the classico, EE and the league and came to ask Millito about his injury, the look on his face told a lot.

  14. April 12, 2010

    also. I like Marc Muniesa.

    Kids a stunnaaa

    -paying my taxes @ the last minute

    -xavi-iniesta playing. am i the only one that hears “sunshine, lollipops and rainbows, everything that’s wonderful is what I feel when we’re together!!” when they’re both on the pitch?

    From our friend who made those great Barça-Arsenal player comparisons- New masterpiece *…cesc-and-xavi/

    Best line: “To me, the bottom line is that Fabregas is in a different league and Xavi, while very good in his own way, is not even half the player Cesc is.” 😀

      And that is why he’s warming the bench.

      Shoulda known.

    LOL, Dani said comparing Messi with Cristiano is “ridiculous.”

    • Corrine
      April 12, 2010

      he also said that when he first saw the line-up (board?) he thought he wouldn’t be playing because he wasn’t written in his usual rb position hahaha

    We have said that we do not support the players’ strike that is scheduled for next weekend, probably because EE is playing Valencia. 😀

    We have also agreed to host the Copa final, which will probably be a little bittersweet for the team. Than again, maybe not.

    Is it immature that I still find the video of TB’s dive against us still funny? One day on and it still makes me LOL, 13 seconds well spent.

    If people don’t know what I’m talking about or haven’t seen it, I don’t mind posting it again. It’s hilarious and I recommend everyone watch it!


    It’s the music that makes the video.

      My favorite was when he dropped to the ground in EXASPERATION because of Marcello’s awful pass. It is awesome. I wish Leo had been close to him to wink at him again.

    I like that JDS metronome’d a few weeks ago.
