Lionel Messi Scores A Hat Trick ... In 21 Minutes (And He Adds A Fourth For Fun)

Lionel Messi is an midfielder who plays for Barcelona. He is better at soccer than you are at ... well, anything.

This is not news (he is the defending FIFA Player of the Year). But on Wednesday, perhaps to remind the world of just how brilliant he is (or maybe he was finally sick of hearing about Wayne Rooney), Messi went out and scored a hat trick against Arsenal. In the first half. In a span of just 21 minutes.
