It was a glorious day in 1999. I was six weeks into my new job in California’s capital, about to head off to a fellowship in Arizona for the summer. But enough about me…
To be honest, I don’t think I saw the match live. It strikes me that I didn’t. But I’ve seen it many times since: United v. Bayern Munich in the Champions League final. It was magic. It still is, frankly. But how many of the players can you name after Solksjaer and Schmeichel? Actually, it shouldn’t be too difficult to get 8 or 9.
But The Sun points out where Jesper Blomqvist and Jonathan Greening are now. It’s kind of funny, actually. I had no recollection that Wes Brown was already sitting on the bench.
Where were you when the gods smited the Germans? Cheering along with me, I’m sure. </sarcasm>
