Out of this world

I had anxiously been expecting a great game in the Champions League final, which I watched in my new football-hangout in Caracas over a few Soleras. I was not disappointed, although it did not go exactly as I thought. That FC Barcelona was so superior to Manchester United was surprising, and nobody can say that their 3-1 victory was undeserved. The Catalonians controlled the ball superbly, and besides an outstanding Wayne Rooney goal, Manchester United's players were all but invisible. One can say a lot of things about how much space the English defense gave players such as Xavi or Messi for some of the goals, but at the same time Barcelona are splendid in finding open spaces.
The great Sir Alex Ferguson, disappointed but graceful in defeat, immediately admitted that his team had lost to the best team in the world.

In the world? Many FC Barcelona players are out of this world, most notably Messi, and I really do not know what UEFA rules say about using extraterrestial life-forms on your team...

They went from MAN U to MAN WHO???...

Very surprising result for a FINAL. My prediction of 0-0 after 90+ with Barca winning 2-1 with PKs, was utterly blown away!
What was the other team FC Barcelona was playing? Man WHO?...
It was practically the Spainish National Team, who recently won the World Cup, plus Messi...does it get any better? FC Barca made MAN WHO look like a team from NASL. MAN WHO allowed FC Barca to look like, well The Worlds best team ever.

I have heard that Man WHO will put a protest to UEFA to suspend Messi, since he is obviously from another planet.
The weight is in fact on Messi to prove that he is human, when we can all see that he is out of this world!
