The splendid spoof Twitter feed Not Match of the Day could not have summed it up any better.
Under the line "People who don't watch football this week" was footage of an elderly couple calmly eating cake with their backs to a window through which could be seen the sort of firework display reserved for Times Square at the turning of a millennium.
The post was implying that anybody who doesn't enjoy following the round ball code this week never will.
It was as spot on as an Eden Hazard penalty.
Dovetailed by the thrilling climax to the English Premier League, the week had been dominated by the business end of the Champions League and Europa League, Europe's major club tournaments.
The Anfield ground announcer played Journey's 1981 classic Don't Stop Believing and injured striker Mo Salah wore a shirt proclaiming "Never Give Up", but few fans of either Liverpool or Tottenham genuinely endorsed either sentiment as they approached their Champions League semi-final second leg ties.
Both EPL rivals had lost their first legs and, at different stages, found themselves 3-0 down and heading out.
But in a stunning 24-hour spell for European football, the teams masterminded incredible scenarios to set up an all-English final in Madrid on June 2.
Both were missing their most reliable goal-scorers (Salah and Harry Kane), made pivotal half-time substitutions, saw players score quickfire doubles early in the second half (Georginio Wijnaldum in the 54th and 56th minutes then Lucas Moura in the 55th and 59th), relied on their goalkeepers to keep them alive and then won in dramatic fashion.
For Liverpool, it was the manner of their winning goal - a quickly-taken corner while Barcelona switched off; for Tottenham, it was the timing - in the last of six minutes stoppage time against Ajax.
Friday morning (Australian time) then witnessed the simultaneous semi-finals of the Europa League in which Arsenal and Chelsea both held the upper hand after first legs and eventually confirmed their progress - the former with the comfort of a 7-3 aggregate win, the latter via the tension of a penalty shoot-out after back-to-back 1-1 draws.
The conclusion to all this was the first time four clubs from the same country had met in the continent's two major finals.
Cue widespread social media gloating from countless English fans celebrating their country's dominance while conveniently overlooking a few key facts.
Not only would the upcoming 13th Champions League title be five behind Spanish clubs but it is also worth remembering that the four "English" finalists are managed by a German, Argentine, Italian and Spaniard and the semi-final goals were scored by players from the Netherlands, Belgium, Brazil, France, Gabon and Spain with the most significant genuine home-nation influence coming from Ruben Loftus-Cheek's second-leg equaliser for Chelsea against Frankfurt and Dele Alli's assists in Amsterdam.
Perhaps even more unlikely is that three of those four finalists are from the same city.
While Liverpool and Manchester City have dominated the EPL to such a degree that they finished 25 points above any other team, it has been a truly remarkable season for London clubs.
Tottenham are in their first Champions League final but spare a thought for supporters of Arsenal and Chelsea.
The distance between the Emirates Stadium and Stamford Bridge is 13 kilometres, however, for the Europa League final they will have to tackle a round trip of 8000km to the Azerbaijan capital of Baku which has been selected as host despite being nowhere near Europe.
So instead of an estimated travel time of 40 minutes, those fans are facing 55 hours.
Added to this is the corporate greed that will see both clubs allocated just 6000 tickets for a venue with a capacity of 68,700.
Then there's the minor inconvenience of the game kicking off at 11pm local time to please the central European audience. Here's a thought, why not please the central European audience by playing the game in central Europe? Just a thought.
Meanwhile, midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan can't travel with the Arsenal squad due to tensions between Azerbaijan and his home country, Armenia, and the UK Foreign Office has issued a warning of "likely" terrorist attacks which "could be indiscriminate and against civilian targets".
Sounds like an ideal venue choice.
The week wrapped up as it had begun, with Man City and Liverpool wrestling over the EPL title.
So close were the North-West rivals that in the unlikely scenario of Liverpool drawing their final game with Wolves 4-4 and City losing 4-0 at Brighton, the top two would finish level on points, goal difference and goals scored and would therefore require a play-off to separate them.
Brighton did their best to oblige but misread the smallprint, handing City a 4-1 win and their second straight title while luckless Liverpool finished with 97 points, just one defeat and a runners-up "well done for participating" ribbon.
Neither side is finished yet.
City will go for an unprecedented domestic treble in the FA Cup final against Watford on Sunday a fortnight before the two European finals take place 5743km apart.
The real fireworks may be yet to arrive.
