OT: Champion's League Final

Anyone see the Champion's League final yesterday?

Barcelona's 11 beat Arsenal's 10, after the goalie Jens Lehman got red-carded for tackling Eto'o as he was dribbling by him for the open goal. The ref blew the play dead even though Eto'o somehow got the ball to Giuly who put it in. No goal.

It was a good result ultimately, given that Barcelona's first goal should have counted on the basis of advantage, with two late Barcelona goals to Arsenal's one.

I was watching it in a sports bar in Leipzig full of passionate soccer fans, having a cigar (got a box of Montecristos from a Cuban guy at work who has connections with the factory), cognac, and a few Kostritzer black beers. That's as good as it gets, short of tickets to the game in Paris.
