and just like that, we’re on our way to wembley!!!
i was so ecstatic watching the game last night, because i missed the first one due to my work schedule. and because of all the bile and vitriol spewed forth by the madrid press, i chose not to write about it. useless adding fuel to an ugly fire.
so, on to the second game…
camp nou was epic. minutes before the game, there was still talk of postponing the match because of the rain and thunderstorms. conspiracy theorists can now include mother nature in their list of barcelona’s secret helpers, because the pitch was absolutely drenched. despite the weather, the stadium was filled to capacity, and cules of every shape and size joined in supporting the club. pep was his usual ubercool self, and our side was calm as we dominated posession. the blancos were lucky to still have eleven men at the half; i don’t think it’s even a question that carvalho should have been sent off. but we’re not really the type to complain, are we? 🙂
my favorite parts of the game:
1. el capitan walking onto the pitch
2. puyi and masch playing brilliantly in their new positions
3. pedro’s goal
4. jimmy jump in #22 🙂
5. puyi/abi sub — tearjerker!
6. celebrations on the field (wet-shirt puyi versus shirtless puyi? so hard to choose!)
all in all, a great result for puyi’s 100th champions league clash. congrats, capita!! to wembley!!!!!
