...and I am nervous! My Mighty Reds are in Istanbul with a chance to win their FIFTH European Championship!
Liverpool FC (my football team!) are facing AC Milan in The Champions League Final (Live at 2:30pm on ESPN2). There is no bigger sporting event in the world this year. I won't go on, bemoaning how American sports fans dismiss 'soccer', but if anyone is interested in learning to enjoy football, tune in to this game and show Liverpool some love. We're the underdogs, and this is as big as it gets in club football.
Although I can't be home in New York City with my fellow Liverpool supporters, I am going down to Kitty Murtagh's Pub here on Nantucket on this rainy, nasty day in order to watch the game. Full report in the comment section after the match, but for now...
Come On You Reds!
You'll Never Walk Alone!
