Man Utd Disappoint as Barca Claim the Title!

In Sports on May 27, 2009 at 20:47

Eto'oAll hail Barca, the 2009 European Champions. Barcelona beat (comfortably!) the Red Devils with 2-0. Eto’o gave the opener while Messi sealed the title with a sweet header after a fantastic cross by Xavi.

Man Utd were never allowed to play their own game as Barca fully dominated the field with quick and accurate passing game, disorienting Sir Alex Ferguson’s team. With Ronaldo and Rooney out of their waters, United had no guns to fire and never posed a real threat to Victor Valdes.

Barcelona are the deserved Europeans Champions. They have been playing tremendous football in all competitions without any major slumps in their performance offering a hell of a spectacle most of the times. Lots of credits to Pep Guardiola, a man who won the treble on his first year as a manager of team playing in high level.

I think that Man Utd’s real weakness was its midfield something that Sir Alex should ponder on. May be Ribery or someone else could add some pace and imagination to United’s game next season.

On the second series in the Eastern Conference Finals of NBA, Orlando Magic where just a second away from making the 2-0 and getting really close to the final as they give the next two games at home. Turkoglu scored a jump shot 3 seconds before the end and everyone thought the game was over. One second was left on the tick and the ball was out-of -bounds. This is when LeBron found some space with a quick manoeuvre and jumped instantly for the 3-pointer to equalize for the Cleveland Cavaliers to 1-1. Take a look at James’s buzzer beater..

Obama Addresses Abortion at Notre Dame College

In Politics on May 18, 2009 at 09:52

In a highly anticipated and rather polarized commencement speech at America’s largest Catholic school, Notre Dame, US President Barack Obama addressed the issue of abortion. His speech was rather mild with no intentions of creating conflicts to its highly ‘abortion-sensitive’ audience. Nonetheless, this didn’t stop certain people from heckling the President’s speech. Obama is cool though and knows how to handle these kind of situations..
