Argentine Soccer Star Lionel Messi on Peter Budaj’s New Mask

Argentine Soccer Star Lionel Messi on Peter Budaj’s New Mask

Montreal Canadiens backup sports tribute to soccer star

[wpfblike]

InGoal’s Scott Slingsby captured these images of Montreal’s Peter Budaj’s new helmet – a tribute to Argentine soccer star Lionel Messi who plays for FC Bercelona. As always of course, Ned Flanders finds his spot on the mask, this time heading a soccer ball tying in with the Messi theme creatively.

As with all the Budaj masks that InGoal has presented before, this one was created by his personal artist, Dave Gunnarsson of daveart.com. These include this season’s “Three Storms” helmet, as well as Colorado masks with Monsters, Inc. and racing legend Valentino Rossi. Flanders as our readers will know well, is Budaj’s nickname, earned for his strong Christian faith.

About The Author

David is one of the founders of InGoal Magazine which he began in 2009. Of course he finds time for some goaltending of his own as well, and despite his age, clings desperately to the idea that some NHL team will call him to play for them - though in his mid-forties (OK, late 40s) it'll likely be for a practice when everyone else on their depth chart has the flu and the shooter tutor has gone in for repairs.

  1. I think it is totally cool that both Habs goalies are Christian. Crosby scores, but Jesus saves!

  3. The first soccer star and hockey goallie for the Habs was Gump Worseley who played center forward for the Hakoa team in Montreal and won the senior Canadian Championship.He was a great soccer player.
