For his league-leading 44th goal of the La Liga season, Lionel Messi radiated his typical genius in tying the match with Athletic Bilbao at 1-1.

Four defenders boxing him in. Seven touches. Three changes of foot. One man. One transcendantal virtuoso who can expose an entire defensive scheme and slot home a majestic goal with his favored left boot.

Where there is Lionel Messi, there is Ray Hudson. The Newcastle native calls most of Messi’s Spanish league matches, and he is as famous for his over-the-top calls as he is justified about those over-the-top calls. Perhaps his best-known call, the 2011 Super Copa Cup final in which he exclaimed, “Excuse me for being excited, people, but we’ve just witnessed a goal that would wake up a catatonic!,” may have been eclipsed by Saturday’s post-goal freakout.

Turn this up to 11 — this is the goods:

It does get any better than that primal scream, followed by this run-on thought: “Absolute, astonishing jaw-dropping genius from Lionel…three players inside a telephone box, AN HE DON’ CARE. He emasculates them, individually, collectively. He literally dispersing his atoms inside of his body on one side of this defender and then collects them on the other. MAGISTERIAL, LEE-OH-NELL. MAGNIFICO. EXTRAORDINARIO!”

Barcelona took the lead but conceded a late goal and drew 2-2, so they’ll to wait one more week to officially clinch the La Liga title.
