Walk On!!!!

Gives me chills...




the one dude at @ the :35 mark looks like Dan Yost. I thought you were a Reading fan, my friend?

Liverpool gets the 4-2 Winner yesterday, and more importantly the 5-3 aggregate to move on to the Champions League Semi's against Chelsea. HELL YEAH!!!

Probably the best match I've seen all year, and properly officiated as well. Liverpool gets the game winner on a Stevie Gerrard PK after late sub Ryan Babel was molested by Toure inside the 18. Gunners fans will complain about the Hleb takedown in last week's match, and perhaps it was missed. Eh.

Tied at 1's after Sammy Hyypia's beautiful header in the 1st half, Fernando Torres provided another huge goal at the 70 minute mark to make it 2-1 (3-2 agg). Absent for most of the 1st half, El Nino finally came alive and blistered one top-right corner past a helpless Almunia. Then Arsenal's Theo Walcott (that boy's good), provided an incredible run to set up Adebayor's match-notching goal at the 84'...which gave the Gooners the more important 2nd away goal that would've sent them on to the Semi's. A minute later, Babel gets mugged, Stevie G converts the PK, and this guy went berzerker in front of his PC at work.

I'd have much rather been at Anfield with this guy after Babel sealed it with Liverpool's 4th goal of the match...





Despite Arsene Wenger's complaints, my Reds got a much deserved victory after owning much of the final 60 minutes of the match. And Rafa Benitez continues to show he's the master of the 2 Legs. Now if we can can only get him to win one of those 1-For-All type matches.

All I need is for Barcelona to wrap things up today against Chelsea, and I'll have 2 of 'my teams' in the Semi's...which could cause complications if they both reach the final.

As far as Chelsea goes in two weeks, I plan on being at Piper's Pub, pint in hand, as Liverpool advances to their 3rd CL Final in 4 years.

"They've got the track record, they've beaten Chelsea twice, there's no reason to think that Liverpool can't do it again." - former Liverpool striker David Fairclough

think you forgot your smiley-face sarcasm emoticon here. anything fewer than 50 don't do it justice.
while your hyperbolic tone hints at it plenty, i'm just worried for your loyal readers who didn't happen to see the highlight (um, lowlight).
