If You’re Looking For The Messi Cover Of Time, Try Anywhere But America


Further proving American ignorance, Time magazine has Lionel Messi on the cover of its magazine everywhere on earth but in the U.S. Because “The Power of (Shyness)” is such an important story. Morons. (H/T Kckrs)

An excerpt:

On whether his rivalry with Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo makes him a better player:
I don’t think so. I never really fixated on him or compared myself with another player. My mentality is just to achieve more each year, to grow both as an individual and as a team, and if he wasn’t there, I’d be doing the same thing.

On what he thinks of Ronaldo:
I think he’s a good person. I think he’s a good player, who brings a lot to Madrid, and who, in any moment, can decide a game.

On whether, when Ronaldo scores in a game, he feels pressure to do likewise:
No. I care about how Madrid’s doing because they’re competing against us, and they’re in our League, and because almost every year, we compete for the title. But against Ronaldo, no.
