The Beginnings Of Genius

Via the FC Barcelona blog, I saw this 25 minute documentary on the rise and rise of Lionel Messi, complete from his childhood in Rosario to his debut as a first-team Barcelona player. To get the subtitles, click the little triangle on the bottom right hand side of the Youtube window and then click on "turn on captions". Enjoy.

What a guy.

Can't get the audio working. Is it just me?

Sometimes the problem is Mozilla -- try restarting your browser. It should work.

Yeah, got it.

Interesting that he started off at Newell's. That's where Maradona played towards the end of his career.
