sports writers getting carried away: exhibit one

Spanish newspaper El Pais compares Ronaldinho and Real Madrid coach Capello:

[Ronaldinho] should be delighted to take on Capello in a duel which encapsulates two totally opposing ways of understanding the game: the supreme exponent of Italian culture against the most genuine ambassador of Brazilian soccer; the most contagious smile in the world against the most furrowed brow of soccer; not to say the best set of teeth against the most prominent jaw....

That may very well be the best thing I've read this week, and I've read plenty of hilarous articles about the Chelsea-Barca matchup in Group A of the Champions League. Speaking of which, a round-up of the results to come later today.
