Liverpool Get Favorable Champions League Draw, Ball Spinner Guy is Awesome

Jim Dedmon-USA TODAY Sports

Liverpool will be in Group B as they return to the Champions League, and the draw went well for them. Real Madrid will be a fun matchup and barometer of Liverpool's ability, and aside from the reigning champions there aren't any huge threats (on paper at least). FC Basel will play pesky underdog once again, and while they've shown that they can pull off Champions League upsets, there were far more difficult possibilities in Pot 2. And I'm now aware that PFC Ludogorets 1945 is a real team.

Oh and the ball spinner guy was hilarious with his serious face and determination to his craft of spinning little balls in circles around a plastic bowl. When he accidentally allowed a plastic ball to escape the bowl mid-spin, you could feel his heartbreak. We'll remember you ball guy.
