Happy Monday, hoddlers,
So, Gareth Bale and Luka Modric have won the Champions League for the second straight season. I didn’t actually watch the match because I had other non-football related things going on and I honestly couldn’t give two craps about either Juventus or Madrid, but from the highlights and final scoreline it didn’t look like it was especially close. I’m happy for Gareth and Luka, though — both left Tottenham Hotspur because they wanted to win Champions Leagues, and they have done so. They’re at the pinnacle of the soccer world. Fair play to them.
