FC Barcelona is in The United States “You’re Finally Free!”
The greatest soccer club in the world came to America to experiment the wonders this country has to offer. However, to their surprise they found out the hard way, why “freedom” in America is relative to who you are.
In the midst of a history making “debt ceiling” fiasco running muck in congress, FC Barcelona toured the brilliant city of Washington. Nonetheless this great club wanted to meet the leader of the “free” world, B.O. (Barack Obama). Obviously B.O. was babysitting the overpaid brats in congress, so unfortunately Xavi and Iniesta weren’t able to shoot the shit with “El Chefe” Barack.
So what else would a bunch of soccer players do while in the USA? How about take advantage of all the free space and wonderful parks? Maybe do a kick a bout and show them “yanks” how to juggle a soccer ball? “Well shucks, that’s just what them damn dirty foreigners did!” If you can believe the best soccer club in the world, and one of the best teams in history decided to kick the ball about at a local park; a piece of open ground we pay taxes for.
“C’mon guys, grown men playing soccer! They should know better than that right?”
