Check Out the Center Circle at the Camp Nou

 Obviously this picture doesn’t show the point I’m trying to make. I just had to use for it aesthetic purposes, so I hope you don’t mind.

In all seriousness though, if you’re watching the Champions League semifinal first leg between Barcelona and Manchester United at the Camp Nou right now, take a look at the center circle. Whoever painted those lines must’ve been drunk. If not drunk, he was high. He could’ve been both drunk and high.

That is the most wobbly circle I’ve ever seen in a professional stadium, especially a stadium of this magnitude for a game with this importance. It’s a disgrace. You would think that one of the most basic tenants of the game, the lines on the field, would at least be painted correctly. It’s supposed to be a perfect circle with a 10-yard radius around the center spot.

If that’s a perfect circle, then I don’t know how I passed geometry. I don’t think my eyes are deceiving me on this one. What a joke.
