Forca Barca!

Tonight is the Champions' League final between Barcelona and Manchester United, so I'm heading over the the Mbassy to watch. I've been reading both Soccernet in English and Marca in Spanish, and they have correspondingly different takes on the outcome of the clash.

Anyway, I'll be rooting for Barca since 1) I'm sick of English teams winning everything, and 2) Thierry Henry gave Arsenal many good years, so I want him to win.

Addendum: Barca wins 2-0! It feels great to pick the right bandwagon.

Well, basically as soon as the whistle blew, Marca went back to talking about Real Madrid's upcoming presidential election while Soccernet shifted straight into how Man U are going to take it back next year. Pretty underwhelming, but there you go. There was some lip service to "possibly the greatest team in history," mostly by Marca.
