>I am off of work today, specifically because I wanted to get some writing done on a legal research project FOR work without being interrupted, but also to watch Barcelona play Manchester United in the European Champions Final this afternoon. As anyone who knows me is very much aware, I do not enjoy watching or attending professional sporting events. For example, I have only been to Camden Yards once, to attend a Papal Mass with Pope John Paul II, and to Nationals Stadium once, to attend a Papal Mass with Pope Benedict XVI.
Barça, of course, is something special for which I make an exception. They are the underdogs going into today’s match, and I do not expect great things. Still, hopefully they will make it an interesting spectacle as I sip my Estrella Damm at a certain local tasca.
