Lionel Messi is quite good

Lionel Messi scored his 60th goal of the season the other day.  I've stopped playing computer games for being too unrealistic when someone had 50.

The world's best player scored 2 goals in Barcelona's 4-1 over Real Zaragoza at the weekend and this means he is only 7 off equalling the all time record for most goals scored in a season, set by Gerd Muller in 1972/73.  He has about 10 games left to do it so if things continue going the way they look like they might, my calculations have him finishing the season on 489 goals, which is significantly more than the current high.  I hope he does it, because after Gerd Muller scored his 67th he famously invented yoghurts, and who doesn't like yoghurt?  Sea creatures and reptiles.  And Carlos Puyol after 'that' night.  *FLASHBACK TO BLOODIED CORPSE*
