    Who in the blue hell is Leo Messi??????????????? It doesn’t matter who it is!!!!!!!

    • not even a Barcelona fan

      he’s more of a magician than an athlete. :)

      seriously though. The guy is insane. His footballing talents are unmatchable.

        I never heard of him and was only using the rocks catchphrases as a joke. People need to chill

        • not even a Barcelona fan

          i know, dude. I was just saying he’s an exceptional athlete.

      American? Look, this debate rages frequently on Richards Facebook page, sadly. Just because you don’t like football, literally refuse to call it soccer, it doesn’t mean it isn’t the single most popular attraction in the world. Europe, Australia, Asia, South and Central America and it’s continued growing market in the United States. That’s like me saying “who the hell is Payton Manning?” Because I don’t give a damn about NFL. It doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate the magnitude of the game. It’s just not my thing so I don’t sit here insulting it through sheer lack of respect.

        While I never heard of him. And I was only making a joke. It was one of the rocks catchphrases you know. I never meant to insult him. That’s what wrong with the world now a days. No one can take a joke and people get insulted over the littlest things. Learn to lighten up a bit

        And I might add I never refused to call it soccer that was the other person. Check who your calling out before you rant
