Excuse the extended absence, but my internet service conveniently decided to start having some technical difficulties on Saturday morning.
Alas, that proved to be the start of what was a forgettable day, to say the least.
I wish it wasn’t so, and it’s not exactly easy to think about or write about, but sometimes you just have to see things for what they are. For all that your biases might do to try to steer you otherwise, facts are facts.
And the fact is, underneath all of the theatrics that marred their semifinal win over Real Madrid, Barcelona are a great team with some great individual talents, and there might not have been anything Manchester United or anyone else could have done to change the eventual outcome of Saturday’s Champions League final at Wembley (making live football betting nearly useless).
