Looks Like Lionel Messi's Found A New Sport

Sunday February 24th, 2013

Earlier today, Lionel Messi scored in his record-extending 15th consecutive league match to help Barcelona rally for a 2-1 victory over Sevilla. (Consider that no one else has ever had a streak longer than 10.)

Messi has now scored 333 senior career goals in 444 matches and he's still just 25.
