Chelsea completed one of the remarkable results in the history of European football (European soccer just doesn't sound right) by snatching a 2-2 draw with Barcelona at the Camp Nou. Chelsea led 1-0 going into the semifinal's second leg, but they found themselves down 2-0 and with captain John Terry sent off for an act that is on the Ron Artest level of stupidity. Down to ten men, Ramires scored a stunning goal right before the break to put Chelsea level on aggregate, but ahead on the away goals rule. It was then up to the Ten Men of Chelsea (all soccer commentators are contractually obligated to refer to a team playing a man down as The Ten Men of ____) to see out the last 45 minutes without allowing another goal.

The Torres goal and shocking result led to a unique reaction from Sky analyst Gary Neville, formerly of Manchester United. I've quite enjoyed Neville's analysis during Champions League games, but was taken aback when he let out this strange moaning sound when Torres closed in on an open goal.
