Europa League Open Thread

Yeah, we're out of it. Yeah, it's not the Champions League. But it's still football, and what better do you have to do than watch Europe's not-quite-elite battling it out for a sort-of prestigious trophy? Again, I love football that doesn't make my guts turn or leave me with nail gouges on my skin.

As far as my time zone math works, I believe that the first round of matches begins at 6pm BST, 10am PT (go Atlético!) and the second round at 8:05pm BST, noon-o-five PT (forza Napoli!). But my brain hurts so I could be wrong.
