From an email:

I just wanted to give you a head’s up for this weekend’s big Champions League Final, featuring two of the most decorated franchises in European club football history! The final will be held live from Wembley Stadium in London on Saturday, May 28 at 2:45 p.m. We’ve ( Touchdown DC 1334 U St, NW) decided to split our bar to accommodate both fan bases, with Manchester fans on the second floor and Barca supporters on the first floor! Should provide for a great atmosphere! $3 Bud, Bud Light, and Modelo Especial, along with a constant stream of pitchers and cheap eats!

      +1. I’m only watching on the off chance that there will be a disaster at the stadium that maims all players and managers.

  • ST

    MU will prevail and I know this because we’ve got the second floor.

    Messi is a soccer god who will smite Manchester United with great fury.

          But your talking about the UEFA Champions league final.

          UEFA stands for Union of European Football Associations.

            i suppose you could call it European Football.

            The term “soccer” was originally invented and used in England. Not sure why they abandoned it, but the idea that stupid Americans came up with the term is misinformed.

      • Rock Creek Runner

        ah, that was meant to be in response to bwa

      • duderonimo

        Jim Rome’s [ASS] is burning.

  • greent

    Was a great game. The better team won. Barca played incredibly. Messi is phenom. Xavi is a master.

    Football, Soccer, Footie, Association Football. Nothing brings out the battle scum about what to call it and who owns the word “football”. It’s not insulting to have american football and association football and rugby football and Aussie rules football and gaelic football… damn, there’s alot of football in the world, ain’t there.
