Great player,

 

Just don't call his sister and mother a whore and his brother's and father a terrorist!

 

 

I'd say that's pretty solid advice in most situations.  Sorry i have no soccer takes.

 Speaking of Minnesota, do they have a professional soccer team? 

They're building a soccer only stadium in St. Paul near the intersection of University & Snelling for the United. I would imagine Justin Patton will have season tickets...

Minnesota has enough population in the twin cities to support a professional soccer franchise.  Maybe they could start one there.  Get the rights to Messi and build a team around him.

 

There's actually quite a few small market MLS teams.  Salt Lake, Columbus, Orlando, Kansas City, Portland, Vancouver, Colorado, etc.  And most of those teams' stadiums are at capacity every game.

 

Messi recently signed an extension with Barca so he's there for at least four more years.  The story of young Messi and Barca is pretty interesting.  Messi showed lots of promise as a young player for his local club in Argentina, but he was diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency at the age of 10 and his father's insurance plan wouldn't pay for more than 2 years of treatment.  The family had relatives in Spain and setup a try-out with Barcelona who ended up signing young Messi and paying for his remaining treatments.
