Messi’s Brilliance Transcends His Numbers

Soccer, like figure skating, demands art as much as sport. This is not baseball, where numbers mean so much that they seem to carry a moral weight. Soccer’s beauty is that it surpasses mathematics, or, in Barcelona’s case, conjures a sublime human geometry of triangular passing and movement.

Basketball, American football, baseball; all these sports stop and go. They were organized for marketing advertisements in between.

The beauty of soccer is the uninterrupted constant state of flow, mixed in with tactics and precision skill and timing. It’s not something to be explained. You just have to watch.
