The biggest Saturday of the season follows what has been a long five-day wait. There is one thing I can't help but wonder: Will Saturday's Champions League Final be able to match the drama and excitement of Survival Sunday? Maybe not, but the day should bring fun times for fans around the world. Don't worry if the thought of Chelsea vs. Bayern Munich doesn't light your world on fire. Major League Soccer matches and games taking place in France should keep you entertained.
