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. Real had no business moving on, but they’re in the final. Good for them. Roma 4-2 Liverpool (6-7 agg.) Liverpool...

An ex-Spy-Kids actor, donning a cowboy hat and a Wu-tang Clan T-shirt, walks into a bar. The Hamilton’s bar at the corner of 14th and F Street, that is.
