League of Champions
The dust surrounding Chelsea's Champions League title has finally settled but the ramifications have not. The manner in which the Cup was won made many believe in football all over again. It was almost magical. After Drogba evened the score with Bayern with a bullet header, he tripped Ribery in the penalty box to gift Bayern a penalty kick. However, Robben was indecisive and Cech was supremely confident and as a result, Cech stopped Robben's penalty kick. With the game still in balance, Drogba came back to score the winning penalty and etched his name firmly in the history of Chelsea.
Chelsea's story is not one of a supremely talented squad that clawed past Barcelona to reach the final. It is not about fretting over missed chances and blaming stoic defense of the opposition. Chelsea's win is a testament to the age old virtues of the sport. It is about courage, valour and the willingness to overcome every obstacle put in your way. Beating Barcelona was the biggest obstacle of them all.
