Champions League In New Orleans

Not too long ago, I was told that the best place in New Orleans to watch soccer football was a place called Finn McCool's in Mid-City. Relatively speaking, that's not much of a statement — New Orleans isn't quite known for its soccer fanaticism. But all I had to hear was that they had projection screens and Guiness on tap and I thought I might give it a shot. Sure thing, the bar was wall-to-wall for the Champions' League Final between Manchester United and Chelsea. But the sure sign that this is as authentic a football pub as you'll find in New Orleans is the immigrant presence. After all, how can you call yourself an Irish bar if you don't have any Irishmen drinking in it?
