by Mike Bozart
A largely autobiographical tale about the author's experience at a Charlotte (NC, USA) bar for the Liverpool - AS Roma semifinal Champions League match (first leg) on April 24, 2018. A certain busboy, possibly from Egypt, is in the throes of mental anguish from an unresponsive love interest. When the clock winds out, he gets a bold reply and some sage advice from a scouser.
