Where you at, AD?
I'm not going to even attempt to do any analysis. The game was insane. I thought we were literally done several times. First when JT got sent off (which Alexis totally embellished and was maybe a soft red, but what the hell was he thinking?) and then confirmed by the second goal. My hopes were back up after the Rami goal, but then I was sure were done once Messi lined up for the penalty...
But man, what a crazy game. The more it went on the more I thought it could just be Chelsea's night. It just seemed like things were going their way despite what looked like 45 minutes of a hockey power play. I couldn't sit still. I could barely sit at all, I just stood in front of the TV. And then the mad scramble and Torres is off and all alone, and he coolly sidesteps Valdes and secures the spot in the final.
I was emotionally exhausted after the game. It was such a rollercoaster. And while I'm irritated at JT as well as Rami and Bran for getting stupid yellows, I wouldn't change a single thing about that game because it was such an experience. It is literally what sports is all about.
