Maradona Right to Believe in Messi

Jun 26, 2018 | Uncategorized

As Argentina faced World Cup elimination in the Group Stage for the first time since 2002, previous Argentinian World Cup winner Diego Maradona rushed to the defense of current Argentine star Lionel Messi when it became clear that Messi was shouldering a lot of the blame for Argentina’s woes.

To Leo, I would like to talk to you and tell you that you are not guilty of anything, of absolutely nothing.

Which he then followed with:

I love you as always, I respect you as always.

Maradona, who managed Messi during the 2010 World Cup, opened the tournament with a cigar in his mouth and pair of flashy wayfarers shielding his eyes. And while much of the man’s behavior has been, well, questionable, during the tournament so far, there’s no denying that his belief in Messi proved correct.

The combination one-two punch from Messi and Marcos Rojo made for Nigeria’s undoing, ending their chance of being the first African team in the knockout round. From here, Argentina will face tournament favorite and Group C winner France. Only time will tell whether or not the team is prepared to go much further.

Now, we have no idea where Maradona would get such a pair of outlandish wayfarer sunglasses, but if there’s one concept Blink Optical is most assuredly built on, it’s not being afraid of trying something a little different. Within reason, of course.

Baseline, by ic! Berlin (col. Blue/Graphite)

ic! Berlin’s Baseline rides that edge between just enough and just too far. Measuring 69-2-145, this over-sized lens masterpiece might be too bold for the average man or woman, but is just what the doctor ordered for those with little to fear. With ic! Berlin’s patented screw-less hinges, light but strong stainless steel sheet metal body, and hybrid-rubber half-rim and temples, Baseline is unlike any other sunglasses frame out on the market today.

If you aim to be bold, be better than boisterous. Be Berlin, ic! Berlin.
