I woke up at 2.30 am last night to catch the live telecast of the European Champions League Semi-Final clash between Liverpool and Chelsea together with my two sons, Syafiq and Anas.
I thought by 4.45 am the match would be over. Liverpool will have won 2 - 0, and I would continue with my sleep.
But nothing doing!
When Liverpool scored - and Chelsea had no answer to it, the match went into extra time. After a goalless 30 minutes of extra time, it was already well past five in the morning. On to penalties. By the time that was over, it was almost 6 o'clock.
So, no more going back to bed for me. I don't think I could sleep even if I tried, what with the adrenalin still pumping in me from the excitement.
So, by right, Wednesday 2nd of May 2007 should be a bad, sleepy and groggy day for me. But with Liverpool winning the shootout and through to the Final, its turning to be a fine, beautiful day (insyaAllah), thank you very much.
So, bring on Man United (we already beat AC Milan two years ago)...
