    Sports discussion

    Tomorrow is a big day for Football lovers. The two best teams in the world, Real Madrid and Barcelona, are facing each other in Madrid, at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. I will be part of the 82,000 crowd, and while I hope Real Madrid can win, Barcelona is a wonderful team, and it won't be an easy task.

    Whoa! I'd love to see this game. However it doesn't look like Fox Soccer Channel is showing it.

    Barcelona remains the top team in the world, after beating Real Madrid by 3-1.

    Congratulations, Schigolch.
    Unfortunately I wasn't able to watch the game. I'm surprised that they didn't show it on American TV, when they show much less important games. Darn.

    He did say he hoped Real would win so maybe he's not very happy

    I believe that Schigolch is a Barcelona fan.
    Not too sure now.

    I'm a Real Madrid fan, actually.

    I support Barcelona's feeder club. If Pelleas et Melisande is like Tristan light then you could say the same about Arsenal.

    Barcelona and Santos will be playing for the FIFA Club World Cup this Sunday at 7:30 PM local time in Japan. Is anybody planning to watch the game? Santos has two good players - Neymar and Ganso - but finished 10th in the Brazilian league, recently won by Corinthians, so it's not like they're among the best current Brazilian teams; it will be tough for them to compete against mighty Barcelona.

    I will.

    Barcelona is the overwhelming favorite.

    Game starts at 5:30 AM in the US.
    Question, Schigolch. How important is this Cup in Spain? I hear it's pretty big in South America but rather despised in the UK. Do they care for it in Spain?

    Oh, and congrats for Real 6 vs Sevilla 2.

    For Barcelona fans, it's an important game.

    I'm watching it. It has the feel of a big tiger toying with a small mouse.
