The majestic Lionel Messi has never scored against Italy’s veteran 'keeper, GianLuigi Buffon until now.

It occurred during a Champions League blockbuster between Juventus and Barcelona that turned out to be surprisingly one-sided.

As in 3-0, Barça.

Besides the obvious advantage, they'll never, ever be confused with those little red cups that were built for quality adult beverages. And if they are, you know it's time to cut someone off.

And that's not even taking the ping pong balls into account. This one's a slam dunk. If you can reach that far.
