Bayern Munich Earn Champions League Final with Victory over Real Madrid: Former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho will miss a chance to face his old squad and Bayern Munich's Jupp Heynckes gets revenge on the team that fired him despite winning the Champion's League title in 1998. Bayern Munich goalkeeper, Manuel Neuer, played a major part, saving Real's first two penalties - from Ronaldo and Kaka. Sergio Ramos's missed effort is thought to be somewhere in low orbit. Bayern Munich will probably be favoured as the pre-selected "neutral" ground will in fact be their home stadium. Plus Chelsea will be without many starters due to accumulated yellow cards and the idiocy of their captain, John Terry.

You'd think this would warrant a real post.

Ok. SpoFi doesn't do emojis or editing.

Congrats to her. I hope she gets more field time to show her skills.

Nic was also an actor, including in my wife's cousin's film, Exists. My wife's cousin and Nic were also romantically involved for a while. She is devastated right now. It has been tough to read comments on sites that reference this tragedy.

If you're on Dish the new beIN Sport US channel is the America Top 250 package.

Ahhh, not an HD channel. No wonder I wasn't seeing it. Still nice to have options! Thanks for the tip, Mr. B.

Is there a racially motivated quarterback controversy brewing in Washington?

Yup. Bayless, Cowherd, and Smith are the main reasons I no longer watch ESPN.

That and the ADD way they report the sports news.

As of this morning it is looking like Arsenal have signed Sahin, and with Alex Song off to Barca Sahin's services are needed. Nothing confirmed though.

What Holden said. And Bendtner will leave even if Arsene releases him on a free. If RvP stays he won't be captain.

First I have heard that Arsenal overpaid for Podolski, especially since, like all Arsenal business, the fee was undisclosed. Podolski, the youngest player ever to reach 100 caps for a national team, and at 27, in the prime of his playing career, seems like a great signing to me.

No mention of Oliver Giroud or Santi Cazorla, and the latter is considered an even bigger signing than Podolski. Again, 27, in his prime, plays with both feet, attacking midfielder. Awesome signing.

Giroud, 25, the highest scorer last season in France in Ligue 1, is Andy Carroll tall without the awkwardness and a much better first touch.

Fuck van Persie. Go get less playing time behind that Hobbit, Rooney, at Manchester United.

Usain Bolt Will Get Man United Tryout

I think it mostly a publicity stunt, and agree with jmd82, that he might actually excel at wide receiver in American football ... a la Renaldo Nehemiah?
