A small, but interesting incident happened during the penalty shoot-out.
My friend Eshwar popped up on Google Talk, and I asked him to hold on for a couple of minutes till the spectacle ended. He was following it on BBC’s website. At 4-4, John Terry stepped up to take Chelsea’s final penalty kick. If Terry converted his penalty, Chelsea would have taken home the crown.
Eshwar typed in “it’s over”. Apparently BBC had reported on its website that Chelsea had won, that Terry had sealed it. But that smart aleck at BBC, with all due respects, forgot a simple lesson in football – “Never count United out!”
Terry missed. And Moscow was painted red!
Never, ever count them out!
