After all the jokes about Sergio Busquets falling down and clutching his face for no good reason (including the one at the end of this post that The Daily Mail plagiarized), it finally happened for a reason. And at the very beginning of the Champions League final, no less. Michael Carrick blasted him with the ball square in the head and, as he's practiced so many times before, Busquets went down clutching his face.
Was it karma? Was it some kind of chronic premonition Busquets has been having? Or was it just an inevitability of life? We may never know. But in that moment, the universe was in perfect harmony.
