well, I would be pulling for Arsenal, but would like to see Barca win another one, just as long as it is someone other than AC Milan

Arsenal or Barca. Arsenal have been unstoppable recently. In addition to the midfield heroics of Fabregas and Henry's always amazing work up front, the defense of Flamini and Senderos has really come together. Lehmann's been amazing in goal and will probably overtake Ollie Kahn as Germany's goalkeeper. I think they'll be able to get past Villareal.

With that said, Barcelona have amazing goal-scoring ability with Eto'o, Messi, and Ronaldinho. As much as I love Henry, I'd probably rather watch Ronaldinho play on any given day. He plays with such joy and is a real pleasure to watch. However, Barca won't have an easy run against Milan. They're out to revenge the embarrassing second leg loss to Liverpool last season.

If Arsenal get to the final against ACM, I think they'll win. If it's Arsenal-Barcelona, it's anyone's guess. Nobody thought the Gunners would get past Real Madrid or Juventus. It should be interesting.

Ronaldinho

is a true joy to watch. he is all that is great about Brazilian Futbol. Thierry is just amazing to watch as he doesn't look like he should be able to do all that he does and if he gets a decent look he rarely misses. I'm hoping for Barca / Arsenal in the final.

Nope, but I did grow up further north than parts of Canada.

at least it ain't like down here in the ohio valley where a winter hat is called a tabagon.

"Frozen Four" is a crappy marketing PR title that they saddled it with a few years ago. it's down to the last four teams, it's a Final Four.
