Carles Puyol has spin moves

Dirty Tackle

The first leg of Barcelona's Copa del Rey semifinal against Valencia was a bit of an odd game for them. Not because they failed to win away from home -- that's become something of a norm this season -- but because Lionel Messi had a penalty kick saved (plus he's got some kind of beard-like facial growth going on) and Carles Puyol scored their only goal.

The 33-year-old defender also showed off some silky moves on the attack, too -- pulling off not one, but two Zidane(ish) roulettes like some kind of permed Tasmanian Devil before laying the ball off to Messi. I've decided he needs to do this more often.
