I made up some bullshit excuse about having a doctor's appt. this morning which has allowed me to get home just in time to watch the UEFA Cup Championship Match between AC Milan and Liverpool. I have no vested interest in either of these teams but I'll go ahead and throw my allegiance Liverpool's way since they are the least traditional power of these two teams. I really just cut out of work because I am a huge slacker and I enjoy watching elite level soccer matches from time to time. So I'm off to eat a little lunch and sit down for the first half of what will (hopefully) be a great match. I'l check back in at halftime. I'm not sure what excites me more, the fact that I'm off work at 2:45 in the afternoon or that I'm getting ot watch this match. Either way, its one hell of a way to spend a wednesday afternoon.
WOW!!! AC Milan just scored a goal in the first 54 seconds on a penalty kick from just outside the box. Liverpool really blew it on the defense of that kick, just didn't acount for any oncoming midfielders. That's it, I'm outta here.
