Before Manchester United won the Premier League Champion, I already knew they will be playing versus Chelsea at the UEFA Champions League final 21st May at Moscow Russia. This is a big match, I mean really really important and big. I am so proud and excited as ManUtd make it all the way to the final and I really wish they could win the UEFA Champion as well.
I checked the TV listing and make sure the ESPN 2 is showing the game. Yes, 2.25 - 5pm 21st May. After lunch with John, I went to Kroger myself to apply for their shopping card as the Albertson is closing down and we have to shop in Kroger in the future. I managed to got home by 2.20pm. Excitedly I put on a RED t-shirt and I turned on the TV.
WHAt???!!! Game is already on for 41 minutes and ManUtd is leading 1-0. OH MY GOD! I thought the game start at 2.30pm???!!! OK, idiot me! Thats Eastern Time!!!! I missed the whole freaking 41 minute of the game. After two minutes or so, I found out Ronaldo made the first important goal at 26 minute. Well, good good! ManUtd still leading! I just wished they finished up the 1st half game with the result of 1-0. Pleaseee defend defend!!!
BUT... most of the time things just happen against your wish! Damn, Lampard managed to goal at the last 3 minutes. Aaaaahhhhh~ DRAW game now!!! DRAW!!! That means, it will be more exciting. I almost pulled off my hair when that happened.
Anyway, that is such an enjoyment to watch my favourite team playing again LIVE! I don't watch that much of soccer game once I move to USA. I just miss those old days always watching soccer match with my brother and buddy at weekends.
Well, 2nd half game is over and the result is still DRAW, 1-1. That means extra time 15 minute. After first set of extra time, STILL DRAW!!! What?!! Ok!!! Another 15 minute extra time again. And as what I predicted, they have to end the game with penalty kick!!!!
I can't handle!!!! Its blood boiling, adrenaline shooting up, heart pumping!!! To make the story short, the CHAMPION goes to MANCHESTER UNITED with a dramatic finish of penalty kick! I had my jaw dropped when I saw Chelsea missed their 5th penalty kick. (They would have won if they score that one because ManUtd Ronaldo missed the 3rd penalty kick). With the result of 6-5 penalty kick, WE WON!!! ManUtd is the UEFA champions again after 10 years. Aaahhhh AAAAaaahhhhh! Yes, I still wanna yell my excitement out eventhough the game is over like 2 hours ago. Can you feel my joy??? Excitement!!!??
Hubby watched that with me and he just teased about my craziness!!! I made him TiVo the game and rewind back and PAUSE so I can snap some pictures of those important moments! Therefore I can blog about them here!!!
