Champions League Game Time Thread: Juventus vs. Celtic

THE CHAMPIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Giuseppe Bellini

Okay, who's nervous?

No, seriously, answer the question.

And then consider this one: If you are nervous, how is your stomach feeling?

Maybe it's just nervous anticipation or something else, but the next couple of hours are either going to be one where we chew off all of our nails, yell at the television non-stop, or just go flat out crazy.

It might very well be that kind of game today.

Don't get me wrong, I'm feeling a lot more confident than, say, two week ago when Juventus' January results resembled something of a mid-table team, not one that is a few games away from returning to the European stage. That was just the nature of the beast, and now Juve have started to turn things around.

So if they want to maybe score a few goals and pick up a win in Glasgow, that'd be a-okay with me — and just about everybody else who sports a bianconero jersey week in and week out. Just an idea. Feel free to roll with, fellas.

That's all I have to say for a pre-game message. Inspiring!
