It's UEFA Champions League draw time. Imagine the song. Sing it out loud (I'm pretty sure it's just 'the Champions' repeated over and over again). Also imagine some Heineken bottles. Singing the song. If anyone asks what you're doing, tell them you had a seizure.
The pots are all seeded and now we're just waiting for teams to be drawn. Remember that teams in the same pot cannot be drawn together, and nor can teams in the same league (so no Manchester derbies or Clasicos just yet). The group stages are by no means a formality -- several big names were eliminated before February last year -- and there are some seriously worrying-looking names in the lower pots. Here's the complete list:
