I'm stuck here at work and far too busy to watch today's Champions League semi-final 2nd leg encounter featuring Cristiano and The Marketable Madridistas versus The Bayerische Dampfnudelns.  I plan on following some sort of gamecast online, but I'm looking to you, fellow Short Fuse commenters, to provide me with more colorful commentary on the events, action and general happenings taking place a couple hundred meters north of the Fröttmaning train station in Munich.

Real Madrid go into tonight's match up 1-0 in the aggregate, and face a Bayern Munich side that's struggled of late putting similar competition aside (Borussia Dortmund waltzed into Munich and owned the joint to the tune of a 3-0 victory over the hosts two-and-a-half weeks ago).  Anything can happen, but what will most certainly happen is Arjen Robben will dive like a coward in the penalty box at some point, causing the official to award a penalty kick because the fans will undoubtedly influence an unfair decision.

Usual blog rules apply here when commenting in open threads, so that means to please refrain from posting illegal links to the match, and definitely do not display any form homophobic, racist, sexist, xenophobic and any other anti-social behavior, or comments, in the section below.

With that said, comment away, and please do your best at entertaining me this afternoon.
