Lionel Messi, to my mind the most extraordinary athlete of our time, was brilliant again against Napoli this week – if you're curious why people worship him, see the goal at 2:58 of this video. He is also Barcelona's team captain, a role he shunned for most of his career because he would rather play than talk. But reporters listening in the tunnel heard him say this to his teammates as they went in for halftime:
Tenemos dos goles de ventaja, no seamos pelotudos. Juguemos tranquilos.
Which might be translated,
We have a two goal lead, let's not be jackasses. Play calmly.
Which, it struck me, is exactly the motto of the Joe Biden campaign.
