#UCL: What the popular kids are saying on Twitter


Bayern Munich outlasted Real Madrid in the second of two memorable Champions League semifinals. No big entre portions here. Just appetizer nibbles of genius, 140 characters at a time, from the pretty and the popular crowd at Twitter High:

ESPN’s Taylor Twellman (@TaylorTwellman): BAYERN wins!!!!! Love it that is why you play the games.

ESPN’s Derek Rae (@RaeComm): And to think Aberdeen took care of both Bayern and Real Madrid en route to lifting the Cup Winners Cup 29 years ago.

Freelance journalist Avi Creditor (@AviCreditor): That reserve game in Munich between Bayern and Chelsea is going to be watched by a ton of people.

Daily Telegraph correspondent and columnist for Sunday Telegraph Henry Winter ‏(@henrywinter): Well at least #cfc fans should have little trouble finding hotel rooms in Munich.....
