[[posterous-content:pid___0]]60 Minutes continues to be a source of information that finds a way to examine the human condition – whether through conflict journalism to the more subdued yet frenzied world of international fútbol. Bob Simon recently traveled to Barcelona to examine the cultural phenomenon of FC Barcelona – arguably the most popular club in the world and a squad boasting a who’s who of international superstars – with none bigger than Argentinian Lionel Messi.
