3pm is late evening dinner in florida isn't it?

I think the early bird specials don't start until 4:30p in the restaurants. In my kitchen, however, I am master of all, including timing. :D

Still not over that final to be honest, might take a while. Looking forward to the draw for the group stage though.

Boy with you guys in Europe with the violence over a Football game. 

Here I hate the Chicago Cubs, Blackhawks and Bears as Newcastle hates Sunderland and Arsenal hates Spurs and so on. But my stay in Chicago never ends in violence. Same as the Chicago fans come to STL.  So why?

Saw the PSV game, cool team and Lozano is some player. Good for him that he stays at PSV for another year. 

Also very cool that Red Star Belgrade is in the CL! Old school club, ex-winner and first time in the 'new' Champions League for them. They survived 4 rounds to get to the groups! Imagine that.

Can't wait for the draw, looking at the pots there will be some tough groups.

And Salzburg failed to qualify for the 11th time in a row. They are definately cursed.

Speculation that if they go out early another club will bid for him in the January window. The change in the "cup-tied" rules makes that more likely.

top team in the Russian league is automatically in Pot 1 - maybe Putin paid UEFA? ;) 

Actually, it is the top-6 ranked national leagues. Just kidding, Vlad :D 

How that is a top-6 league is beyond my understanding: maybe someone can explain that to me? But this site says their UEFA coefficient is 22.5, which would rank them in the middle of Pot 4.
