The premise of the tale that Hernán Casciari, the writer, published in his magazine Orsai in April of 2012 was simple: Messi is a dog. A dog like Totín, the one of his infancy. In his day did viral by the depth of the words. A big tribute
There are times that the adjectives exhaust . Every time it costs more explain what is able to do Messi in a terrain of game. Because the Argentinian has traspasado all the borders. And, curiously, many affirm that his ceiling is the one who he decide. Without more. Like this of hegemonic is his career.
Possibly the best tribute that has offered him to the star argentno signed it the writer Hernán Casciari, that in his magazine "Orsai" published, does already five years, a lovely text and irrepetible on Leo. Obviously it did viral because it was accompanied of images of Messi dressed of Barcelona.
Part of the fragment of "Messi is a dog"
"I had a dog in the infancy that called Totín. At all it conmovía. It was not an intelligent dog. They hinder thieves and he looked them carry the television. It sounded the bell and did not seem to hear it. I vomited and he did not come to lick.
However, when somebody (my mother, my sister, I same) held a sponge —a determinate yellow sponge to wash the dishes— Totín maddened. It wanted this sponge more than at all in the world, died for carrying this yellow rectangle to the cucha. I showed it to him in my right hand and he focused it. I moved it of a side to another and he never left to look it. It could not leave to look it.
It did not matter to which speed moved I the sponge: the cogote of Totín moved identical by the air. His eyes went back Japanese, attentive, intellectual. Like the eyes of Messi, that leave to be the ones of a preadolescente atolondrado and, by a fraction of second, turn into the look escrutadora of Sherlock Holmes.
I discovered this afternoon, looking this video, that Messi is a dog. Or a man dog. That is my theory, wail that have arrived until here with better expectations. Messi is the first dog that plays to the football".
