[VIDEO PICK] Lionel Messi scored his 29th La Liga goal of the season with an amazing free kick.

Messi's free kick sailed over goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois into the far top corner of the Atletico Madrid goal to give Barcelona a 2-1 win on Sunday.

    I never clicked like and I don't like this. The video is blocked. Screw Messi. Now I understand better why Argentinians even in Denver, CO don't like Messi. Ultimately he is responsible for his presence, not his business managers. Humphf!

    @bill, are you commenting on this article? I'm confused. I saw the goal. It was clever and perfectly placed, but I don't know about 'brilliant'. I didn't notice any 'business managers' in the video, thankfully.

    Mark N.: The video has since been blocked by La Liga and/or Terra Networks USA, bummer!
