Barca Win Offers Precious Lessons

They don't stop at putting great talent together. No, everybody sticks to the discipline of how they play football including that 1m69 fellow from outer space.

Humility is the way to go: that saves your head from swelling too much so that you can keep your eyes on the prize. And get better.

So much class and humanity: an injured Puyol, the usual captain, is sent on the pitch in the closing moments of the game when it was unlikely that Manu would come back. And then he gives the captain band to Abidal who had a tumor removed from his liver a mere two months ago.

Reminds me of a comment of Ilie Nastase about Bjorn Borg: We're playing tennis, he's playing something else.
