It’s Messi, it’s Xavi…and they are already playing some seriously clinical soccer.
For Stuttgart, they counter with 7’8” 370lbs (6’2”, 200lbs) Pavel Pogrebnyak up top also known as “the big Russian.”
It’s already live–throw your comments below–and we’re late so we’ll go to the archives one more time below…
From August 7th….
As you may know TSG’s northern headquarters are in SF. This is from a fan, a true fan, at TSG North:
From Chris in San Francisco.
“I just tried to crash the Barca press conference at the Intercontinental in SF to hang with Henry, Messi et all. Once I made it in the hotel and into the elevator I found my way to the floor hosting the press conference only to be ushered back into the elevator by hotel security. It was a good try, not great, but good. For what it is worth and those of you in SF, practice tomorrow at Kezar either at 9am or 10am.”
Nice work Chris. Do you know where they are partying tonight?
This also gives me the opportunity/excuse to insert one of my favorite “soccer” scenes of this past year.
Lionel Messi dressed up as Papa Smurf being completely hammered at Barcelona’s Champion’s League celebration.
