Live from Wembley: Champions League Final – Barca v. ManU

May 28, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

Barca. ManU. Both teams won their domestic league. Both teams feature a veritable who’s who of footballing talent. Barcelona’s La Masia trained three man symphony of Messi, Xavi, and Iniesta lead the way for the La Liga champions. ManU is led by the ageless Ryan Giggs, the now traditional 10-shirt wearing Wayne Rooney, and El Tri’s Chicharito.

Those are the headliners, but this game figures to be won in the trenches by guys like Carlos Puyol, Pique, Busquets, Ferdinand, Vidic, and Carrick.

My wishes for this match? First, that the referee does not repeat the debacle from the World Cup Final. Second, that Fox does not completely butcher their coverage. I winced when I read that Michael Strahan was going to be involved. I appreciate the attention Fox is giving this game, but please don’t turn this into a caricature of an NFL broadcast.

Who do you have? Barca or United?
