Barcelona won the European Champions League final in Rome today with a convincing win over Manchester United, who as we all know, is England's version of The Evil Empire. (Remember, they signed a cross marketing agreement with the New York Yankees many years back. Guilt by association in my mind.)
The smugness was wiped off the United fans as Barcelona took Man U to school, and the loss especially kept Sir Alex Ferguson from tying the legendary Liverpool boss Bob Paisley's record of three European championships as a manager.
Liverpool fans can breathe a little easier tonight.
