During Sunday's Super Bowl broadcast, Leo Messi was named the GOAT of football along with other sports legends including Tom Brady (American football), Michael Jordan (basketball), and Wayne Gretzky (ice hockey).
This came just a couple of hours after Leo's instrumental involvement in Barça’s comeback win against Betis. Tom Brady had just won his seventh Super Bowl and his first with his new team, Tampa Bay. Immediately after Tampa Bay's win, Brady, TB's quarterback, was named the GOAT "greatest of all time" of American football - just as Michael Jordan is the GOAT of basketball, Gretzky the GOAT of hockey, and Messi the GOAT of soccer.
As Messi fans, this is nothing new to us. But it's nice to get that additional validation on North American television, broadcast to over 110 million viewers. Congrats on this recognition among other legends, Leo!
