Barcelona beer company Estrella Damm recently put out this clever ad with the anthem of F.C. Barcelona executed by blowing on bottles. A fan sits down, opens his beer, take a sip, seemingly forgets it’s there then realizes that his beer is in front of him. He blows over the mouth of the beer and realizes that it makes a sound, much to his surprise. Then he decides to get more beer bottles, fill them with various quantities of beer and produce the anthem of Barca.

It’s a pretty cool video and I applaud the efforts. Now I’d like to see one with Valencia or Real Madrid. Oops, did I just give myself away?

Messi Neymar

Amidst speculation that Neymar could join Barcelona, Lionel Messi has given his public endorsement saying that he would in fact welcome the addition of the Brazilian.

“For us he would be a marvelous addition,” Messi said. “He is the type of player who offers individual solutions different from the rest. He is a great player, who is very good in one-on-ones with opponents.”

Can you imagine Messi and Neymar on the same team? Unreal.

It was a great move by Messi to clear the air before a potential arrival as we’ve seen what can happen when things get awkward between teammates.

Check out FC Barcelona as you’ve never seen them before. Fresh off a La Liga title and completely … well, happy.

They’re falling every which way; dancing and taking off their shirts. Yeah, they’re pretty … happy. Perfect song choice, by the way.

Messi says goodbye..

Written by Rudy Madrigal

Lionel Messi

To the season that is. After walking off during the second half of Barcelonas title-clinching victory against Atlético Madrid, it has been reported that Messi could miss the final three games of the season due to his re-aggravated hamstring injury. With only three games left, it isn’t worth the risk for Messi to come back, especially since they’ve already won the league trophy and don’t have any other trophies left to play for. Plus, I’m sure Argentina would love to have Messi fit for World Cup Qualifying this summer.

Here is something you don’t see everyday. After Bayern’s big win over Barcelona, a pitch invader joined the German club for their celebration.FCB Fa His first order of business was to hug Franck Ribéry and then hold on for dear life. Lucky for this lad, the Reds were in a pretty jolly mood after having just embarrassed Barcelona 3-0 at the Camp Nou. This kind of reminds of that one time LeBron tackled a fan who hit a half court shot. Although this Bayern fan was quickly taken away by security, he didn’t leave empty handed. Watch the video of Franck Ribéry defending the pitch invader and then giving him his shirt after the jump.

Frustrated from being handled by Bayern Munich 4-0 on Tuesday, Barcelona’s Jordi Alba resorted to mushing Arjen Robben’s face with a soccer ball. Not smart as it earned him a suspension, but hey, you know what they say: if you can’t beat em, mush em.

El Papa Francisco recibe una camiseta de Messi

Not just anyone can be the Pope; it takes a supernatural “gift.” Apparently, it also comes with a few.

We’ve previously noted some of the great perks of being Pope. This time, Pope Francis received a Barcelona Messi jersey signed by the man himself and a Spanish National Team jersey signed by the whole team. Not bad. I wonder what he’s going to get next?
