    I thought it was an Onion headline. It's not.
    I agree. Real Madrid is a joke.

    Signed him to their youth program. Isn't it typical to sign the kids up at that age in Europe in the pro teams' youth programs? Maybe signing an Argentine in Spain is unusual?

    I read a good NYT article on this in the Netherlands last year.

    But from the article you linked:
    There are mutterings of disgust that Real has signed a player too young for many amusement park rides, but signing young players is old hat in the beautiful game. Earlier this year, VVV Venlo of the Netherlands' top league reportedly signed an 18-month-old to a 10-year-contract. Yes, an 18-month-old.

    But from the article you linked:
    The only thing that is unusual is the kid is from Argentina.

    He wasn't signed to a pro-contract or to play in a lower division.

    They are essentially putting him in their development program and he'll play on a club team...like a comp team here in the U.S.

    Big woop.

    Nobody with their wits about them would allow their lips to touch that straw. No way you could keep a straight face and drink from that. Or while somebody else, perhaps an unwitting guest, sipped from it.

    I still don't get it. Is this a hispanic thing?

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.
