The UEFA Champions League playoff is like a very long series of NCAA
Play-In Games Opening Round Games; scrappy champions of small leagues and barely-qualified major league losers clash heads for the right to face the real "Champions" in the group stage.
Those playoffs are underway in full-force this week, and here's a fellow who supports Spanish side Malaga, fourth-place finisher in La Liga last season and paired up against Greece's Panathinaikos. Malaga took the first match of the tie 2-0 in an outcome that surely put big, fat smiles on the faces of Los Boquerones supporters. Our featured fan has a long way to go before he can match this fellow's enthusiasm, though.
