FC Barcelona update: Enric Reyna, interim team president, resigned as of today. There will be elections for a new president and board of directors, but they haven't announced when. They may be waiting for the end of the soccer season. Nobody's running the club. The big news is that Reyna announced the club will be €55 million in the hole at the end of the season. That's a lot of money. They're going to have to sell players and won't have the dough for any big signings. Bummer.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid plays Juventus tonight in the first leg of the Champions' League semifinal. I'm rooting for Madrid because 1) Qadafi's kid owns 7.5% of Juventus and 2) because if Madrid wins Barcelona fans will be pissed off. Should be a good game. It's on TV1.
