Just for those of you who are wondering what last night's posts are about - my team Liverpool won the Champions League last night in one of the most amazing games of football that I've ever seen.
Liverpool have had a pretty poor season playing in the English League but came into their own in Europe's premier competition. They were underdogs in the final and were 3 - 0 down at half time which should have meant that the game was over. 3 goals in quick succession rocked their opponents, Italian giants AC Milan back on their heals and after extra time, with the score locked at 3 - 3, they ran out winners on penalties.
Liverpool are England's most succesful club side and this was their 5th win in the European competition - the previous time was in 1984 however and Liverpool has struggled to recapture former glories. Hopefully this feat - probably the closest comparison I can make for those of an American persuasion is for a wild card entry to win the Superbowl, will be the start of a new Empire.
