Barcelona Wins 2-0

ROME- Patience, flair and a brilliant game of keep-away prevailed over force Wednesday night when Barcelona dominated Manchester United 2-0 to win the Champions League title, Europe's most prestigious club soccer tournament. (New York Times)

In other news, Giants lefty Randy "the big unit" Johnson pitched 6 strong innings to earn career win number 299.
Aaron Rowand continued his surprising renaissance as leadoff hitter with two doubles and some daring base running.
Travis Ishikawa also stayed hot, with two more hits.

This is America. We use our hands when we play ball.

Doesn't it speak volumes about a sport when a championship HIGHLIGHT is " a brilliant game of keep away" ?? Come on, is that suppose to be exciting!??!!

Also, just for the record, Rowand was out by a mile on the "double steal" last night. The catcher dropped it. It was ANOTHER example of brain dead GOMERISM.
