Liverpool beat AC Milan in the UEFA Champions League final today. This draws a collective yawn from 99% of the nation's sports fans, but it turned out to be such a classic match that ESPN actually skipped a broadcast of the World Series of Poker to re-broadcast the contest. Now, you know it had to be big-time to bump poker.
As I appear headed to become an Everton fan, thus not liking Liverpool, I'm appropriately aghast at Liverpool's triumph. I also tip my cap to the lads as Milan had them down 3-0. Liverpool tied the match in the second half and won on penalty kicks.
I'm not sure which is more surprising: That Liverpool prevailed or ESPN canned poker for the night?
