One thing that's really annoying is that I had to travel at half time of the game and missed the entire 2nd half. Then today I try and find some highlights so I can see the ridiculous finish, and all the contents are either removed or in a foreign language. Anyone know where I can get the ESPN (it's not on ESPN.com? c'mon!) or a British version of what happened?

I found a great link that spotlights what was happening at both stadiums during the games. As everyone has said, it really was the ultimate climactic finish. Soccer doesn't get better than that.

Good morning. THE CHAAAAAAAAAAAAMPIOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONS!!!!!!!

Another unlikely performance in what has been an inconceivable few months.

Once again Didier Drogba leaves his mark in both good and bad ways, but if that was his last game in a Chelsea jersey, he will be immortalized forever that's for sure.

Cech pretty much won the game for Chelsea though, first saving the Robben penalty, and then diving the correct way on every PK taken in the shootout.

I'm going to visit Stamford bridge when I go to london first week of July, and then seeing Chelsea when they play at Yankee stadium July 22nd for the first time in 60 years. I'll have pics from both hopefully. Who knows, maybe I'll run into this guy:

Pretty great game. I think franck's leg cramping up really hurt bayern's chances on extra time. There offense just seems way more potent with ribery out there. They seemed stagnant in the extra time. Pretty funny to see neuer take one of the pk's, looked awkward but went in. Tough break for schweinsteiger hitting the inside of the post and not getting the goal. I felt like Munich was the better side all day, but Cech was the best player on the field.

Pumped to see Ox on the field to start for England. I'm interested to see how they fare without Rooney in the lineup.

I don't mean to troll this thread, but I used to love watching soccer, and have tried watching some Euro... It's impossible to watch with the flopping. I've counted 23 career ending knee injuries just narrowly avoided in this game alone. How can you watch this sport anymore?
