When I heard about Barcelona's 4-0 victory over AC Milan yesterday, overcoming a 2-0 deficit from the first leg and advancing to the Champions League quarterfinals, my first thought was the health of one of our favorites – Tiziano Crudeli.  Thankfully for everyone's sake, it appears as though Crudeli survived the crushing loss (barely) and the reactions around the Direttastadio studio didn't disappoint.

Just watch as Tiziano goes from heightened concern (Messi's first goal), to hysterical disbelief (M'Baye Niang hitting the post), to inconsolable grief (Messi's equalizer before halftime), to resigned defeat (David Villa's goal to make it 3-2 on aggregate), to depression (Barcelona's 4th in stoppage time)…


Fear not, Tiziano, happy days will come again.
