Number of the Day: 300

Number of the Day: 300

After more than a year of siege, on September 11, 1714 Barcelona fell to King Philip V of Borbon’s army. On that day, Cataluñya was absorbed into the Spanish empire and has remained so ever since.  Calls for an independent nation of Cataluñya have never been stronger and more united, and whilst FC Barcelona does not active participate in politics, the club as always reiterated it will move with the people of its region. Before the Athletic Club match on Saturday, a special banner will be displayed to highlight the 300th anniversary since the day independence was lost, and seeing as a referendum is scheduled for later in the year, perhaps the mosaic a year from now will be noting a markedly different situation.

The one and only baby ‘Messi’

Among Argentina’s long list of laws, a certain one prohibits parents from using surnames as first names. Nevertheless, that did not stop Hector Varela, an Argentinian man from the southern city of General Roca, to name his son after his football hero, Lionel Messi. Varela asked the authorites for permission to name his son ‘Messi’, and his request was accepted. Many surely hoped they would follow in his same footsteps, but in Messi’s hometown of Rosario, the head of civil registry took it upon himself to remind the citizens that the law still prohibits the use of surnames as first names in order to avoid confusion. Messi Daniel Varela will get to enjoy a unique name.

Legal: Bartomeu and Faus appear in the clear

José Perals, a corruption watchdog in the Spanish government, recommended to judge Pablo Ruz, in charge of the still ongoing Jordi Cases Neymargate saga, that FC Barcelona club president Josep Maria Bartomeu and vice president Javier Faus not be named as an accused in the case. He states that “no incriminating evidence involving them has materialized.” I  guess he read the small print.
