Screenshot: Real Madrid vs. Bayern Munich

If ever there were any doubt that Real Madrid are the luckiest team in the history of the world, this staggering gaffe by Bayern Munich’s Sven Ulreich that set up Karim Benzema for the easiest goal he’ll ever score in his life should remove all doubt:

Just check out the size of this boner. Bill Buckner looks at this boner and thinks, Phew, at least I didn’t do that. Mr. Marcus looks at this boner and thinks, Damn, even I’m jealous of that bad boy. And this came in the second leg of a Champions League semifinal tie during which Bayern have been very much the better team and yet they are at this point trailing by an aggregate score of 4-3. Bayern need just one goal to win the tie, but there’s exactly zero percent chance of it happening.
