Happy 30th Birthday to the boy from Rosario, Santa Fé, Argentina.

Lionel Messi might not be medicine, but he can feel like it. Watching Messi with a ball at his feet is a testament to the rest of our possibilities. Maybe we aren’t so terrible, because he’s one of us. He can make us seem better than we are. He rewards so many different kinds of attention. 

Sometimes he is best seen from a distance. If you’re far enough away from the action so that the names and numbers have disappeared, Messi will still be easy to spot. That’s him, way over there, the man farthest removed from the play. That’s him - standing by himself. […] It is almost painful to see film of him from the start of things. He played differently then. He was unblinking, like a child. His skin was clear of tattoos. His hair was boyishly long, parted in the middle. Now we know the greatness that awaited him, but back then, when he came sprinting off the bench for the last eight minutes against Espanyol, the first eight minutes of his career, he was all future. 

[…] Watching him closely - not from distance this time, but under a microscope - it’s possible to anticipate when he will receive the ball, because he still lights up like a boy when he senses its arrival, an almost imperceptible surge of energy coursing through him, a current that pushes him to the balls of his feet. 

He can do what every great athlete can do and the rest of us can’t: He can see the future. He knows what will happen before anyone else in the stadium understands what just did.” [x]

Happy 30th Birthday to the legend, Lionel Messi! {June 24, 1987}

“I always thought I wanted to play professionally, and I always knew that to do that I’d have to make a lot of sacrifices. I made sacrifices by leaving Argentina, leaving my family to start a new life. I changed my friends, my people. Everything. But everything I did, I did for football, to achieve my dream.”

  • What she means: I swear to god I love lionel andres messi cuccittini so much his birthday is the equivalent of Christmas for me. D10s I love him he is the light of my life, my world, I would die for him. When he retires the world will lose all of its happiness as the sun shines only for him. Each of the atoms that make up my body vibrate to the chant of "messi messi messi". When he breathes, I breathe, when he cries, I cry, when he smiles, I smile. My heart beats only for one man, one goat, one king and his name is leo messi
