OT: Champions League Final - Borussia Dortmund vs Bayern Munich

Submitted by Wolverine In Iowa on May 25th, 2013 at 1:52 PM

All-German final, with kickoff at 2:45pm EDT on Fox.  Let's have a good laugh as Gus Johnson covers the most important soccer match of the year.

Bayern is a monster team, but BvB can bring it too.  I predict 3-1 Bayern.

I predict 3-2 to Bayern. Bayern's run seems unstoppable, but these teams have played each other 3 times this year, with 2 draws and the only win coming by 1 goal. I forsee a close game, albeit with some fireworks (maybe wishful thinking on my part, it's the CL final so I really just want to a good game).

Although as for who I'm rooting for, it's gotta be Dortmund. Not only do I hate Bayern for their tradition of buying their success and their spoiled American bandwagon wans, but as a Tottenham fan I'm still pretty upset about last year.

I was so pissed that Bayern blew that game last year, but let's face it as a Spurs fans, did we really expect anything else to happen?

I'm like you in that any team with bandwagon fans is the one I root against int the Champs league final.  It's kind of like the horrifying number of ManU and Barca fans that pooped up in the recent years.  Plus their main color is red and as good Michigan fans we should always be skeptical of those teams.

England gets too much credit for "inventing" soccer.  The sport has existed for untold centuries.  No one really knows where the sport originated - there is historical evidence of kick-the-ball-into-a-goal sports being played all over the world.  All the Brits really did was decide that one particular set of rules was the official one.

Bayern have been so impressive. Ran roughshot over the Italian and Spanish champions, not to mention Arsenal. Though I did see some stats regarding Dortmund and what occured when they last won the Cup in '97.

I came here when I realized it was Gus Johnson on the call.  Can't they just buy the BBC feed instead of trying to train up clowns who really don't know what they are talking about?

That play by Subotic to save a goal may have been the best defensive play I've ever seen.

Cheers to Bayern, though I could never root for them against any German squad.

I'd like to see Ribery spend 2 minutes on the ice amongst NHLers.  What a flopping pansy.

It's really too bad for the United States that he didn't choose to play for us internationally, even after playing U17s and U20s. Would be amazing to have him anchoring the defense for the 'Nats in the next World Cup.

The good news: You win the Champion's League. The bad news? Robben resolves to now be more "Robben" than ever. Phyrric Victory.

Seriously, though, dominant all season. Well done. Welcome to the 5x Club!
