In Boston, they have given up hoop and hockey dreams and are looking again toward the fall classic. In Cleveland, they're ringing their hands about LeBron. And in Pittsburgh, it's all Penguins all the time.

But in so many other places, the big news today is the Champions League final between Manchester United and FC Barcelona.

Early morning internet chatting today brought greetings from an old friend, Alessandro, a Barca fan in southern Lebanon, who wrote by way of introduction: "Tonight is the night."

In Italy, Andrea offered: "Tonight, I"ll support good football. Just hope it will be a fantastic game!"

And from Barcelona, Edu, five hours before game time: "Let's hope it will end as we expect. ... I hope it's going to be a great Mess-i."

The final:

Barcelona 2 - Manchester United 0
