Champions League Draw

Well, in case you missed it (and I'm guessing most of you did) Celtic FC had a historic comeback last night in Glasgow.  After losing in Kazakstan 2-0, they came back to Scotland won 3-0, scoring the last goal a couple minutes into stoppage time.  This put them through to the lucrative group stages of the Champions League.  The draw for the group pairings took place today and Celtic's Group H is probably the toughest one in there.  Barcelona was in the same group as Celtic last year and the Hoops were able to take a game off the Spaniards so anything is possible.  AC Milan is a team that is going to be tough.  Young, aggressive with lots of striking power (Mario Balotelli, El Shaarawy, Niang).  And Ajax of Amsterdam is another of my favorites.  And the stadiums!  Camp Nou, San Siro, Amsterdam ArenA...incredible European nights!
