i searched long and hard to find if there was anywhere in denver i could get to see the cup final between chelsea and liverpool being televised. i eventually stumbled across an irish pub that was showing the england ireland rugby game in one half of the pub and the football in the other. due to the time difference the action started at 8am. it was quite surreal to be surrounded by a crowd who emerged from somewhere sporting either liverpool or chelsea shirts.
i was beginning to wonder if i should have stayed in bed when liverpool scored after 43 seconds. but chelsea then dominated the game and finally managed to score after 80 minutes. two more in extra time and a final score 3-2 to chelsea - up the blues!!!
