After stringing together such an impressive run of matches, I figured FCB was going to be unstoppable against Fiorentina and Nuernberg. Apparently, I was wrong. And, boy, did some Italian fans let me know it! Whatever. As much as I’d like to think I’m always right (My ex used to say to me, “Susie? How does it feel to be right all the time?”, to which I’d reply, “Actually, it feels pretty damn good.”), I know it’s not really so.

Is it unreasonable to be giddy ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League match against Fiorentina at the Allianz Arena? Signs would seem to point to “no”. After all, the last time we faced an Italian side, we just happened to demolish Juventus 4-1; which brought us clear to this stage in the competition.

The short version of this blog would be:

First half: Yay! And then 40 minutes of #%^$$&#!!#$#$!@@#$#$$!!!!

Second half: Ah, that’s much better…

Ah, much to discuss… I’ve finally gotten my desktop and netbook back in order, (Damn you, Windows!) so now I can finish spewing my opinions willy-nilly. Eh, it’s part of my charm… right?

Braafheid’s Switch to Celtic

Right at the transfer deadline Bayern coach, Louis van Gaal, opted to send Edson Braafheid on loan to
Celtic. Van Gaal gave an interview stating that Edson “was not rated by the fans in Bayern”. And, that, “in such a case, it is better to let the player go and leave the club.”

Can I get a “huh”?!

When I last wrote, I was concerned about not being able to watch the Bayern - Bremen match because I was going to be in mid-flight. Luckily, Virgin America allows internet access. However, I still needed a nap, for I had to hit the ground running when I arrived in Los Angeles. My plan was to sleep during the first half, wake up at the break, and tune in for the second. As plans usually do, mine went awry. I didn’t wake up until the 65th minute, which meant I had to scramble to sign up for internet access, find the match on one of my favorite, ahem, “legal” websites and wait for the stream.
