Treble - Premier League, Champions' League, American Idol

An absolute nailbiter, but well worth staying up from 2.30 - 6.00am. We win 6-5 on penalties after Chelsea hit the woodwork thrice. Ryan Giggs breaks Bobby Charlton's record with his 759th appearance, Paul Scholes ends his 9-year Nou Camp hoodoo and Ronaldo scores against Chelsea for the first time in 14 attempts.

And to top it off, it's a victory for good 'ol rock after David Cook pipped David Archuleta to be American Idol, despite extreme biasness from Simon Cowell that required him to publicly backtrack and apologise this evening. At the end of the day, America had to ask itself: Whose album would I buy? Who'd I prefer to see live? The answer of course is David Cook, pre-pubescent girls notwithstanding.
