Football Fanatics


It’s enough to make you cry in your beer.  FC Bayern makes it to the Champions League Final for football, and loses to Inter-Milan 2-0.  The fact that Bayern didn’t even register a goal was particularly painful for locals and fans around the world as FC Bayern has previously won 22 German championships, and 4 Champions League finals.  Hopefully it will not erase the fact that they had an amazing run to the final.  Perhaps some good news for Bayern, as they resigned star Frank Ribery through 2015. I actually saw Inter-Milan play early in the year against Barcelona.  It was the only game I saw in person this year, and it turned out to be the most uneventful 0-0 game I had ever seen.  Inter-Milan did absolutely nothing to win, and Barcelona did absolutely nothing to win.  It’s hard to believe this was the same Inter-Milan team I saw that went on to win the triple crown.  Shows that after 5 years of living in Europe, this American still doesn’t understand the game of football.
