It’s Messi’s world and we’re just living in it, news and notes

Did you see what young Argentine Leo Messi did to Arsenal in the second leg of Barcelona’s Champions League quarterfinal? How about a hat trick in a 21-minute span in the first half?
Not good enough? Well he added a fourth goal in the 88th minute of the 4-1 win to advance Barca to the semis against Inter Milan, which handled CSKA Moscow.
Four goals. Unbelievable. Gunners coach Arsene Wenger called the kid the best in the world.
He’s just 22 years old and he has the soccer world in his hand. Personally I can’t wait to see him on the biggest stage in the World Cup (though his production at the national team level has left much to be desired).
I’ve embedded highlights of the match at the bottom, but until then, some links:

And as promised, the majesty of Messi.
