Which one of us is going to have a heart attack today? I think I'm due for one.


LETS GO BAYERN!
 
2013-05-25 07:48:51 AM  
I hope Bayern ends up eating that huge turd they've been polishing all season.

GO DORTMUND!

Meh, Bayern is by far the better team. If the fact that they won the Budesliga doesn't say enough, keep in mind they did it while shattering 24 or so records too. Is Dortmund going to be an easy win? Hell no. Are Bayern garenteed a victory? Hell no. This is going to be a tough match and I'm expecting it to be damn close.

Off the top of my head, I think Bayern has won twice this year against Dortmund (Supercup, DFB Pokal) and drew even both times in the Bundesliga. Bayern have to strike early and keep going to win here. Dortmund is a team that can come back from a huge deficit in 10 minutes. I think this is going to be by far the best Champions League final in a long time.

I don't know if my heart can deal with it, but this might go down to penalties.

England doesn't trust that the Germans are merely here to play a football match, scramble RAF fighters just in case...

Der Ball ist rund und das Spiel dauert 90 Minuten.

Wenn man nicht weiß wohin mit dem Ball, dann muss man ihn einfach in's Tor schießen!

Bayern should counter with a "Thanks for getting rid of Hitler" sign.

Hahaha brilliant

These Fox commentators are already annoying the crap out of me. I might end up watching this one online with just crowd noise.

Before we get started, I'd just like to welcome Gibraltar to UEFA; they were just admitted as a full member yesterday.
 
2013-05-25 02:19:39 PM  
Apparently insulting Gus Johnson in your headline is a good way to get your thread deleted. Noted.

30 minutes out, I have no team in this, and I'm already hyped up.
 
2013-05-25 02:19:52 PM  
It is Warren Barton in the booth and not Ian Wright, right?
 
2013-05-25 02:20:14 PM  
Did something happen to Schweinsteiger in warmups? That's what ZDF is saying. Maybe a pull.

We'll just insult him here.  And I am pulling for Dortmund just because.
 
2013-05-25 02:21:02 PM  
I'm going for Bayern this year because I don't want to see Schweinsteiger going all emo if they lose again like last year.

2013-05-25 02:21:17 PM  
This will be my first Gus Johnson broadcast because I'm not going to the pub and I want to watch it in high def. Hopefully it won't be too bad.  Both teams have played amazingly throughout the tournament and I'm hoping today is no different. Just want something enjoyable with lots of attack.

Correct. Johnson and Barton with the call.
 
2013-05-25 02:22:00 PM

German teams in England to boot. But I opened the door by submitting this headline.

/Hey, I could've said "It took them nearly 70 years, but finally the Germans occupy London"

Hipster douches that hate on Gus Johnson are closeted racists.

At least we can agree Barton is terrible in the booth, but okay in the studio. Ian Wright is better than Barton. And everything's better than Gary Farking Neville.

Half of Fox's crew for a soccer game is made up of their football crew. Of course they're going to be terrible.

No way! Gary Neville is the best color commentator out there. Fact.

Predictions?

Bayern 2 AET 2 Dortmund

Bayern 5-4 on penalties
 
2013-05-25 02:36:22 PM

2-1 Bayern

Hoping for 3-2 Dortmund

That would be awesomely funny.

The BBC getting a shot in...

Please, no penalties tonight!
There are 12 Germans in the starting line-ups - we may be here all night.

Also, apparently the officials are Italian. We might as well just have a Axis powers reunion here.

/runs for it
 
2013-05-25 02:40:02 PM  
I got 5/6 on Bayern to win in 90 mins. Too tempting to resist.
 
2013-05-25 02:40:31 PM  
Is it over yet? My heart can't take this.
 
2013-05-25 02:40:48 PM  
Heart, 3-2 BVB
Wallet, 3-1 Bayern

Prediction:

I will beat the f*ck out of the neighbors who have apparently turned on their anti-antenna device, and now my signal has suddenly gone to sh*t.

Oh lord, Gus is calling this and NOT Martin Tyler?!  Fark that; I'll just adjust the SAP so I could get just the stadium and no announcers.

Don't really care who wins, but I will root for the underdog.

Black and Yellows!

I'll say 2-1 Dortmund AET.

Trocadero: What the hell were those guys wearing? 30 Years' War reenactors?


Via the BBC:

It's opening ceremony time - as usual I haven't the foggiest what is going on. There are over 500 extras involved though in some sort of medieval knight battle.
Danny Boyle's job is safe.

Paul Breitner and Lars Ricken - dressed in full armour - carry the trophy out on to the pitch! Bizarre.

noblehammer16: Don't really care who wins, but I will root for the underdog.

Ditto. Also I know that Sir Cumference the Flatulent is just a small fan of theirs...so I'll root for them., since I once saw a cardboard cutout of him in person.

You forgot Bayern don't have a great history in CL finals.

/come on Dortmund, show them that money isn't everything
 
2013-05-25 02:45:55 PM  
As I don't have a favorite I'm just hoping for a good game.

Also, for those of you who are cheapskates (like me), Steam has Football Manager 2013 on sale today.

/wooo
