Barcelona get diving lesson from experts

Continuing their U.S. tour in Florida, several members of the Barcelona squad (including Sergio Busquets) visited the Miami Seaquarium for a special training session with world-renowned diving experts, dolphins. The session -- led by professional dolphins Echo, Ripley and Croix -- will surely help Barcelona keep their edge on Real Madrid this season and take their diving skills to a new level.

(Sorry, Barca fans, but it was just too hard to resist.)

Not only did the dolphins show them proper diving techniques, but one of them even scored on Victor Valdes. Video right this way...

Of course, given the setting, Busquets could not demonstrate his now infamous technique of falling down and clutching his face for the dolphins because that would've resulted in drowning.

Meanwhile, after seeing this session, Barcelona decided to sign Echo instead of Cesc Fabregas.
