Wear Red on Wednesday

Girlfriend and I departed at the bus "terminal" this morning sentimental and gloomy — a typical Monday. Little does she know, they'll be other (equally important) thoughts entertaining my mind this week.

In case you're not the football savvy kind, Europe's most lucrative football competition, the Champions League, is at its semifinals stage. Chelsea F.C. play away against 2005 champions Liverpool F.C. on Tuesday and Manchester United face off against 2006 champions Barcelona F.C. for their away game in Spain on Wednesday. Leg 2 (United play at home) of the semifinals continues on Tuesday and Wednesday next week.

All my years of watching football, I've never seen United pass the semifinals. I only dream of it. I think about it all week because nothing else matters. Will they survive Barcelona?

Regardless, when Manchester United F.C. travel to Spain in two days, I'll be watching ESPN 2 at 12:45pm wearing red, black, and white.

This Wednesday, wear your red!
