APP2001110918192Do I hate Maradona? No. He was a great player and one of the most progressive players in South American history. What I don’t like is Argentina.

So, when Don Diego says something like this, I must honor it.

Maradona, when asked if the team was feeling the pressure of the upcoming game against Brazil: “Pressure is felt by those that have to wake up at 5 a.m. to go to work, getting payed a meager salary. Football players must have responsibility, which is something else entirely.”

Worry not, Don Diego. We’ll cream you on Saturday, but with all due respect. After all, you are the most Brazilian of Argentinians.
