UEFA Champions League Final: Watch the Amazing Manchester United Tribute Video
Whether you're a Manchester United fan, a Barcelona fan, a fan of (insert team name here) or simply a fan of football, the United tribute video that will be shown before the UEFA Champions League final at Wembley on Saturday will draw some sort of emotion or another.
Red Devil fans will likely watch with glee through the sharp, awe-inspiring seven-minute tribute. Others may cringe or find a wall to punch as United's triumphs and legends from throughout the team's history are glorified.
Full disclosure: yours truly is an Arsenal supporter. I grabbed the trash can and pulled it over next to my desk at the Bleacher Report office expecting today's breakfast would be exiting from my mouth at some point. Instead, I was left with an odd feeling of chills (I tried to avoid 'em like the plague).
The video starts with the team's early history and moves into a tribute to the seven Red Devils lost in the 1958 Munich Air Disaster. The video then chronicles United's other European triumphs (1968, 1999 and 2008) while paralleling important moments in history with clips old and new.
Naturally, many Manchester United legends are paid tribute throughout the video: Matt Busby, George Best, Paul Scholes, Edwin van der Sar, Ryan Giggs, David Beckham, Cristiano Ronaldo, Sir Alex Ferguson and current Mexican starlet Javier Hernandez (Chicharito).
The final clip is current United skipper Nemanja Vidic lifting the Premier League trophy following by the ManU TV announcer rightfully quipping: "If that doesn't get you in the mood, nothing will."
Saturday's kickoff can't come soon enough.
