Champions League Results, Part I: Barcelona To The Finals

While there’s still much for us to discuss re: the Barcelona/Real Madrid CL tie since our last recap, we’ve elected to keep things short and sweet this time around.
Why? Mainly because we have bigger and better things on our plates. Like photoshopping our new Finest Five together, for example.
And so, we’d like to congratulate the Barca boys for making it to Wembley. We imagine the Catalans will be lounging comfortably on their lush Italian leather sectionals this evening as they eagerly await the result of the Schalke 04 v. Manchester United return tie. As you may recall, United have two crucial away goals in their clutches, but it definitely ain’t over until the fat lady belts her bluesy tunes.
Now, on to more important issues: would you agree that Leo Messi is picking while Xavi Hernández is scratching/rubbing? And what was with the poor man’s pitch-invading version of Where’s Waldo last night?
Both scenes are making us uncomfortable. And slightly jealous.
