It was 3:15pm when I got back home from school today. Though the game had been scheduled to start at 3:00pm today, I was glad to have found out there was some delay with the programs in the schedule and I did not miss anything in the beginning. As expected, the Spurs had started off strong. Jason Kidd had already commented after their last game that they were working on some new plays to step up their game. Tim Duncan had scored a double-double this time. He managed 27 points and 10 rebounds! Way to go! I was impressed by how both teams had shot very well every time down the court. The game ended at 108-100 giving Spurs the victory for Game 1 in the Western Conference Finals! I think Carlos Boozer had put up a good show this time, making all of his 6 field goals attempts! I hope to be able to watch Game 2 and it wouldn't be at an awkward timing on ESPN.
Once again, it was the long awaited game between Chelsea and Manchester United in the FA Cup Final held in England. Though I did not watch this game, I was hoping that Manchester United had sealed the lead over Chelsea when I checked SI.com. I am pretty sure all the Chelsea and Man United fans desperately wanted the team they were cheering for to take home the FA Cup trophy this time around because almost 90 thousand people had turned up. According to the news, after 90 minutes during the normal regulation, it was still a goal-less draw between the two teams. During the last four minutes of extra-time, Didier Drogba of Chelsea had received a perfect pass from Frank Lampard to score the goal the Chelsea fans had been waiting for during the entire game. Sigh. This gave Chelsea a 1-0 win against Man United. Though I don't usually keep track of the times of soccer matches on ESPN, I do check SI.com quite frequently to keep me updated on the latest scores. It's just too unfortunate that Chelsea had scored in the last 4 minutes before a penalty-kick shootout, as I would predict Man United would have turned out to have scored more goals because they have the best players with excellent penalty-kicks.
