Aside of Bayern Munich’s staunch run to a treble, 2020 has been, well, a Harvester of Sorrow.
While many thought a Bayern Munich treble run would be The Day That Never Comes, there were many who kept the faith for a moment just like this. A tweet from the Bundesliga led Metallica to tweet at Bayern Munich for its Champions League win and also at Robert Lewandowski and Serge Gnabry for their excellent individual performances.
Congrats to @FCBayernEN for winning the treble this season and also to Robert Lewandowski and Serge Gnabry for becoming the most goal dangerous duo in @ChampionsLeague history! Good luck in the upcoming @Bundesliga_EN season! https://t.co/Gd4IzEkGSc— Metallica (@Metallica) September 8, 2020
As you can see, the Metallica tweet was in response to a video that the Bundesliga tweeted using the version of Enter Sandman that was performed by Metallica in conjunction with he San Francisco Symphony from the S&M2 album.
For Paris Saint-Germain, it was another Sad But True reminder of Bayern Munich’s Seek and Destroy mission in the Champions League finale and just proved that the Bavarians had the collective mentality that aside of a treble — Nothing Else Matters. Just about the only thing shocking was that there wasn’t a nod to the Bavarian Master of Puppets — the man pulling all the strings in the final third — Thomas Muller. Given his Raumdeutering, Muller has always embraced a Wherever I May Roam philosophy when exploiting space on the pitch.
Also, it is a shame that Kingsley Coman does not use Twitter or perhaps Metallica would have also added him to the list as he was clearly The Hero of the Day against PSG. Anyway, it might have been just One tweet, but the cool acknowledgement surely comes at a good time as the Bavarian boys are just about to re-charge their collective Battery for the upcoming season.
Well, what else is there to say? I guess we should just Fade to Black and just appreciate the brief online convergence of the masters of metal with the Bavarian footballing machine.
