Football is creative! When Barcelona plays like they did tonite. In Madrid, against Real. No, not creative. Artistic. Pure pleasure. As they write on the website of FC Barcelona:

Now that’s what you call football! (2-6). Barça have won at the Bernabéu with an amazing display of attacking and entertaining football. Henry (2), Puyol, Messi (2) and Piqué scored the goals in a historic victory that leaves the team just five points away from the championship title. May 2, 2009 will go down as one of the most historic days in the proud history of FC Barcelona. A day to compare with that magnificent February 14, 1974 when that legendary side led by Johan Cruyff won 5-0 at the Bernabéu. 35 years later, Barça have once again brought Madrid to their knees with a recital of football at its very best…

I watched it alone with a constant sms contact to other Barca fans and with my Barca shirt next to me. Oh, to witness magical moments like these. Look at the photo, a brilliant goalkeeper, Casillas, what could he do, nothing but face the fact that he had been an extra in a drama that was second to none.
