Another Reason to Love Barca

Thierry Henry celebrates after his diving header against Lyon in the knockout stages of the Champions League.
Andres Iniesta celebrates after delivering the equalizer against Chelsea (which was the game-winning goal due to the away goals rule).
Samuel Eto'o scores the tenth-minute opener against Manchester United.
Lionel Messi heads home a perfectly placed ball from Xavi in 70th minute to seal the win for Barca.

There are obvious reasons to love Barcelona FC. They play a beautiful game. Seemingly everyone on the team can deliver a perfectly weighted pass that leads to a goal. They scored 140 goals on their way to winning the treble of the Spanish Copa del Rey, La Liga and the UEFA Champions League. Their front line features Theirry Henry, Samuel Eto'o and Lionel Messi. They have two fantastic midfielders in Xavi Hernandez and Andres Iniesta. But for one more interesting tidbit that I didn't know but furthers my belief that they are the greatest club in Europe right now, read this story.
