Happy Tuesday, ladies and gentlemen. The UEFA Champions League is back today, and with games staggered for maximum viewing pleasure. I don't know why UEFA doesn't do this every week, even when there aren't games in Russia. I guess they don't like money? They could get a lot more for TV if they played games at 6 and 8, or 7 and 9, or 8 and 10 CET. Does someone want to tell them?

Anyway, Zenit St. Petersburg vs. Borussia Dortmund gets underway at 9 pm local time, 5 pm in the UK and 12 pm ET. You can catch it on FOX Sports 1 in the US, Sky Sports 1 in the UK and Sportsnet World in Canada. The late game is Olympiakos vs. Manchester United, which kicks off at 9:45 pm local time, 7:45 pm ET, 2:45 pm ET. That game is showing on the same channels in the US and Canada, but will be on ITV in the UK.

This is your open thread, so chat away.
