Ramblings of a Soccer Junky

  I picked a great day to be absent minded
So I get to work this morning and realize that in my efforts to be a good husband and father this morning (taking care of the little one so my wife could sleep in) I'd forgot to set things to record the Champions League Final. My plan had been to stay away from scores (easy to do in this country) and watch the match as if it were live tonight. I got here and realized I hadn't recorded the match so I followed it online.

Sounds like I missed a classic. Living in a country where the vast majority of people don't follow the sport or go out of their way to put the sport down, this is one match soccer fans can point out that would disprove their opinion. This match seems to have had everything. Yep, I'm kicking myself for not being able to see it.

To be down 3-0 at half-time and come back and win is a major accomplishment. I've already talked with a couple of friends from mine from Liverpool and they were beyond words. Guess it hasn't sunk in yet. Well, congrats to the red half of scouseville. I guess Liverpool were a team of fate after all.
It's supposed to be rebroadcast tomorrow on ESPN Classic:

Missed Liverpool's thrilling Champions League comeback? You can catch a re-airing Wednesday night at 7 ET on ESPN2 or catch the Instant Classic Thursday at 10 ET on ESPN Classic.

I'd guess that's 10PM ET, but not 100% sure.
Thanks for the heads-up Bill. I actually accidently put ESPN2 on when I got home last night and caught most of the second half (missed the goals). Wasn't able to see the extra time or penalties cuz Lost and American Idol season closers were on at the same time...could only do two shows at once (why is the wife such an AI addict?) ;)

I'll make sure to catch the whole match tonight.
hehe. No problem. I can empathize. Not the AI fan myself, I made the mistake of calling my sister last night in the middle of the program. I didn't get the nicest greeting on the phone, to say the least.
should this be something I make my daughter get into? She is 11 and plays soccer.
As someone who recently became a dad, I've alredy learned there's nothing you can make the young ones like. However, I will say that if you get the chance to watch the replay of the match tonight, it's well worth it.
Hi, i live in england and i came across this site by accident. It's great to know that there are some soccer fans over there, we english are of the impression that u guys all hate it.
