Is it the end of Lionel Messi?

No, it is not. So the media can stop throwing that phrase whenever reporting about Lionel Messi's recent injury problems. I'm not a Lionel Messi fan by any means, but the amount of coverage his injury has been getting and the comments about this being the beginning of the end of Messi are ridiculous.

This is the same player who has won the Ballon D'Or 4 times in a row, who has broken every possible record in Spain, is consistently creating new records and is probably going to break every possible record for Barcelona, Argentina and in world football. Suddenly after he gets an injury, it's the end of the world and he's on his way down the drain due to a "misfiring season" (in which he's scored 14 goals in 16 games so far by the way).

Barcelona, with or without Messi, have been getting the results and playing well. They'll carry on doing so long after he's gone and were already doing so long before he arrived, so this injury won't necessarily affect them as all their other stars have raised their games to help ease Messi's absence.

Below are the list of injuries Lionel Messi has had throughout his career. Can anyone spot the common point? 9 out of his 11 injuries have been hamstring injuries. Those injuries are common in players who use their speed in excess. Ryan Giggs suffered of this quite regularly early on in his career and he's had to adjust his game and body to avoid that injury (Yoga training helped too it seems). Lionel Messi will do the same in the long run.

He is only 26 years old, an injury like this is only normal and he will be back banging the goals by the start of 2014. You can bet your house on that. The guy deserves a break. He's been performing at an incredibly surreal level since 2007 (yes, I'm complimenting him), it's only normal that his body gives him warning signs every once in a while. This might actually a blessing in disguise, who knows...

When eventually Messi becomes just another normal player (because that's what will happen by the time he hits 30 years old) and scores 1 goal every 2 games or so, it will be considered by many as his "demise", but they'll forget that even performing under-par, that will still be better than most of the strikers out there. Until that moment comes, the usual Lionel Messi will be back soon...

  18. Have you ever lost yourself in a kiss? I mean pure psychedelic inebriation. Not just lustful petting but transcendental metamorphosis when you became aware that the greatness of this being was breathing into you. Licking the sides and corners of your mouth, like sealing a thousand fleshy envelopes filled with the essence of your passionate being and then opened by the same mouth and delivered back to you, over and over again - the first kiss of the rest of your life. A kiss that confirms that the universe is aligned, that the world's greatest resource is love, and maybe even that God is a woman. With or without a belief in God, all kisses are metaphors decipherable by allocations of time, circumstance, and understanding
