Barcelona Vs. Real Madrid: El Classico

This was the match of the year. It was watched by millions of people. All statuses yesterday included something about it. Even idiots who know nothing about football icluded it in their posts and tweets.
Personally, i'm not a big fan of either Barcelona or Real Madrid for reasons that I shall not dwell upon at the moment. But I would be a fool not to admit how amazing the game was yesterday. I extremely enjoyed watching it! Sometimes it's easy to let the game turn into a set of strategic tactics instead of just letting it flow naturally, which just ruins the purpose of it. But yesterday's match reminded me and millions of viewers and fans of the beauty of the game. It reminded me of why I started watching football. It made me understand the reason why a lot of people simply choose not to side with one team, stating that they just want to enjoy the game and they don't care which team wins.
It's such a shame that Chelsea wasn't the team that reminded me of all of these things.
That was way too sappy and corny!
Of course the majority of the people are in the category of fans that actually care about the outcome of the game and about the team that won and about the one that lost.
So what was the outcome yesterday?
Well i'm sure that everyone knows by now but just in case someone was in outer space and missed it:
Barcelona killed it! They won 5-0
And they deserved the win, even Real Madrid fans (well the logical ones at least) admitted that Barcelona were brilliant and that they absolutely deserve it.
The game, however, was anything but clean. There was a lot of "violence" and tackling and shoving. Everywhere I looked I could see people falling left and right. It looked more like a battlefield than a football stadium. I'm surprised that Pique didn't spontaneously start bleeding and that nothing bad happened to him.
All in all, there were a total of 13 bookings, and Ronaldo and Ramos kept going around shoving people. Ronaldo even managed to shove Pep Guardiola, and Ramos eventually lost what little of his brains he had left and he got sent off. 
What made the game even better for me is the fact that Cristiano Ronaldo was on the verge of tears, and well you may call me a "cold hearted bitch" but seeing Ronaldo sad makes my heart burst with joy.
Even seeing Iker Casillas looking so depressed didn't make my happiness falter ( it usually makes a difference)
Nothing could've taken away the joy I felt yesterday
Well except for Bio 201 and a certain asshole

Fernando Torres: A Love Hate Relationship

Hey I decided to share the story of my love hate relationship with Mr. Torres. You see I used to hate him with a passion, almost as much as I hated Ronaldo. I used to think that he was overrated and that everyone exaggerated about how amazing he was. But then I started liking him because seeing him with his family made me change my mind and all my friends thought that he's cute, which he is, those freckles just kill me. All in all he is very adorable and lovable. But every once in while he does things that make me go back to my pre Nando appreciation era. For example, his efforts (on the pitch) during the world cup match George W. Bush's effort to stop the war in Iraq. And then he's pretty much useless in all of his games in the new season of the premier league until he plays against chelsea that is. The guy decides to have an epiphany and gets inspired and ends uo scoring 2 goals which eventually lead to chelsea's loss ( of course i blame chelsea more than i blame Torres but still).
So now I don't like him, but I don't despise him either

For those of you who live under a rock and don't know this yet Chelsea lost twice consecutively (once in stamford bridge) against sunderland and birmingham city! My brain just can't process this fact! How could they possibly lose? They didn't just lose they were eradicated actually, I mean sunderland wiped the floor with them. I get that John Terry wasn't playing and Frank Lampard is still injured and Essien was out, but can the good performance of a whole team actually depend on 3 players (regardless of how amazing these players are)?
No! The answer is NO! What will they do when these players are no longer with Chelsea? I think the world might come to end at that point, so i'm not even going to go there
So for now I have this to say to the players and manager and all other staff at chelsea:
Stop screwing up! Please it's killing me and i'm sure millions of other fans as well. Stop playing like you don't give a shit about the outcome of the game, because you're making it torturous for us to watch the game and enjoy it. Play with your hearts, you can't go wrong when you do that.
Please stop losing, we're holding on the to lead in the table by a thread, we want to see you crowned champions again this year so put minds to it and step up your game
Sincerely your biggest fan
