I Missed Me Some Champions League

It's that time again, time to listen to the official Champions League Hymn that we hear before and after TV matches and sing as high as we can. Don't kid yourself; you do it, I do it, it's no big deal, even if we don't understand the words.

The Champions League is back tomorrow and I couldn't be any more excited. There are some mouth-watering ties in the Round of 16 and to me, one of the best of the bunch will be on TV tomorrow as Liverpool hosts Inter Milan on ESPN2.

I made my predictions the week that the draw came out and did a small capsule for each pairing, so if you're interested in those, go back to the blog archive from around Christmastime.

Just to put it on the record though, I'll list the eight teams that I believe will advance right now:

AC Milan
Manchester United
Real Madrid

I know where I'll be at 2:30 PM tomorrow afternoon, and hopefully you'll be able to find a nice couch as well and enjoy the commentary from ESPN's Derek Rae and Tommy Smyth, two of the best in the business. Should be a good game at Anfield; I can't wait to watch.

The Champions!
