FA Cup Final

My best friend of many years, Matt, is in England for a fortnight to visit his friends and family. Matt now lives in Houston, TX but was brought up in Redditch just up the road from me.

Both of us used to be keen Football fans (and Aston Villa fans) in our teenage years, but our interest has waned in recent times – Matt’s especially due to "Soccer" being way down on the list of popular U.S. sports. However we both still enjoy a good match and today was FA Cup Final day so we decided to crack open a few beers and watch the big showdown from Cardiff.

I love the FA Cup for it’s sheer drama and most of all for it’s ability to throw teams from opposite ends of the league together. As long as it’s not Aston Villa – I’m always rooting for the big club to get toppled by the non-league outfit (and yes, I accept the argument that Villa are rapidly losing the ability to be called a "big club").

Having been jumping up and down with excitement watching Liverpools earlier FA Cup match with Luton that ended up with 8 goals and end-to-end action, I hoped the Cup Final would provide similar action.

And how! Liverpool took the Cup from West Ham United after a
penalty shoot out
, but the match was played at frantic pace – so much
so that the final stages almost literally saw players dropping with
fatigue!

If you could choose to watch one FA Cup Final from the
last ten, it would be this one – so an afternoon well spent and a
reminder to Matt of what good "Soccer" he’s missing!
