You don't need to like soccer to be impressed by this.

That's Lionel Messi, Argentina's long-hyped 19-year-old, dribbling through five Getafe defenders to score a goal for Barcelona in the Copa Del Ray.  It's the closest we've seen to Maradona's Goal of the Century in the 20+ years since it happened. 

I saw this first at The Offside, but MJD Nathan Fowler has a great write-up at the FanHaus as well. You know, if you like "insight" and "analysis." *Yawn.*
