Just got finished watching the Champions League final like millions of others around the globe. Sadly I had to pass on Martin Rogers' invite as I have kids and that pretty much means I have no social life. I did go out to Chivas USA training though, which I suppose is fitting as soccer is as close to a social life as I have these days, well, that and Disneyland.
Anyway, the game lived up to the hype. PKs aren't the most ideal way to decide a championship match but I don't think you could have watched them and not felt nervous. You've got to feel for John Terry. You can't come any closer to winning the Champions League final than having the goalie dive the wrong way on the decisive penalty kick only to have it sail wide. Unbelievable.
Still, the game I was really looking forward to watching starts in less than an hour or so as Boca Juniors visits Atlas. Is it a bad thing that Boca Juniors-Atlas in the Copa Libertadores quarterfinals appeals more to me than the Champions League final? Probably, but that's what it is.
