biggest soccer game of the year, the champions league final between borussia dortmund and bayern munich is on fox at 245 est. doesnt feel all that interesting to me maybe because they are both german teams and i dont watch the bundesliga. still, they crushed both of the spanish teams they faced in the semis so they are definitely deserving.

kareem would probably get suspended for two months today at least. i wonder if there was any penalty at all for this.
