The Indignity of Luis Suárez

Just look what they’re subjecting him to

Take pity, because this is what it’s like to be Luis Suárez right now: playing with Barcelona B in a friendly against the Indonesa U-19 national team, getting blocked by a hapless defender’s booty-check, and then blasted with the ball when you’re on the ground. Screamer has the full highlights (Suárez yawns in two goals) and a write-up that emphasizes what a joke it is for a striker who cost €94 million to be involved in the game. Personally, I think it would be pretty cool to be 18 and trying to mark the best striker in the world. The kids will be talking about this for the rest of their lives.
