3cb229e6f1.jpgIn case it’s escaped anyone’s attention, Chelsea and Manchester United meet in Moscow on Wednesday for the Champions’ League Final. It’s going to be quite a week for Moscow.

Which is why I’m more than usually frustrated at my bleariness this morning – thanks to the cacophony of car horns and shouting in the wee small hours outside the bar across the road. Russia beat Canada last night to win the 2008 IIHF World Championship, you see – their first World Championship in fifteen years.

Well done, chaps. And a useful and timely reminder that, despite how it feels sometimes, there’s more to life than football.
