Well, it was kind of fun. Shit-ass Liverpool got pipped for the Prem title, thanks to their draw at Goodison Park. I don’t like many of the results in the Champions League, but the action on the pitch has been pure Bananacakes (also, Come On, You Spurs!). But all must come to an end.
France finished up its season Friday afternoon. Huzzah to Lee Ann Reims for beating PSG in their home finale. Yes, I bet on that.
Italy’s Serie A closes with 2 matches on Saturday, and 8 on Sunday. Atalanta, Inter Milan, AC Milan, and Roma are in a scrum for places 3-6, with first two getting Champions League, bottom two settling for Europa. None of them play each other, or any opponent that’s particularly good. Though Empoli – who go to Inter – are in severe relegation danger, and really need to win. Various and sundry ESPN+ broadcasts, I may get bored enough to watch one.
The main events are Cup finals – Bayern against Red Bull Leipzig (ESPN News, 2:00) and Valencia taking on Barca for the Copa del Rey crown (ESPN3 and ESPN Deportes, 3:00). Probably each worth a look, though Bayern pretty well demolished the energy drink a few weeks ago. I am more confident that Bayern has figured their shit out than I am Barca. But Valencia is just so meh. No bets placed…yet.
Our Young Boys close their season at home to Luzern (1:00), and I am out of jokes for them. Already clinched first, up 20 points on 2nd.
But June? June is where it’s at. A happening so spectacular that Japan and even mighty Qatar…are switching fucking continents! Balls will be here next week to provide all the juicy details. Until then, keep cool and Stay Lesser.
