A close finish

 Two very close finishes occurred in sport today. The slightly more well known one was the win by Argentina against France in the World Cup (3-3 followed by 4-2 on penalties). The other was Nakamura beating Carlsen 14.5-13.5 on the 2002 Speed Chess Championship (on This is Nakamura's 5th win in this event, showing he is quite good at this format.

I suspect both matches were very exciting for those who were able to watch the games (I confess I missed both due to the early morning starts). 

However the best take away for me was a comment I saw on Facebook (which probably came from somewhere else). "What will English fans do when England win the World Cup? Switch off the Playstation and go to bed"
