Dammit, who am I supposed to be rooting for?

Chelsea, on Bayern's home pitch, equalizes with almost no time left, wins the shootout, takes the Champions League Final.  I have be for Chelsea, right?  Oh, except my team (or at least the team most of my friends like), Tottenham Hotspur, is now screwed.
There's no shame in finishing fourth in the Premier League. It's how Spurs finished fourth, though, that has left fans bitter and stunned. A top-three finish was Tottenham's to lose just three months ago, and lose it they did in spectacular fashion. Spurs were even given new life during the first weekend of May when Arsenal stumbled at the Emirates. Tottenham couldn't beat lowly Aston Villa in a "win and we'll be in" match, though, and their fate was no longer in their hands. While Chelsea were a team of destiny, Spurs were more style than substance, more headlines than actual results. What will forever be the season of what might have been could also be the beginning of the dismantling of a squad that was untouchable just this past fall.
Well, at least we'll suffer with the The Damned United.

But why suffer?  Why not celebrate with the Manchester City faithful, who just had the Best Thing Ever happen to them, winning the Premier injury stoppage time...over Manchester United...on a goal differential...


If you can't dig that, look into a heart transplant.
