Champions League Reactions: Semifinals, Part 2

Let me get the scores out of the way, because I want to depart from the usual formula.   Real Madrid 2-2 Bayern Munich (4-3 agg.) Ulreich messed up, and Bayern’s front three couldn’t finish.

Pups in the Park: A Tradition Unlike Any Other

Malmo, Ajax, Juventus, Inter, Barca, Milan, PSG, United, now the Galaxy.

It seems like every year, a host of analysts, fans, and other observers claim that the NCAA Tournament looks “chalky.” They point to bad matchups and superteams stopping any potential Cinderella stories, along with the fulfillment of enticing storylines such as Duke’s heralded freshmen making a run, or Virginia’s packline defense smothering opponents en route…
