THE GERRARD FINAL = A SPECIAL MEMORY


Today is the 14th anniversary of “The Gerrard Final,” Liverpool FC’s win over West Ham United in the 2006 FA Cup final. The game was tied 3-3 AET. Liverpool won on penalty kicks.

Why is it called “The Gerrard Final”? Watch the video.

This game is special to me because it’s the last sporting event (of many) that my mother and I watched together. Peggy Ann Madden passed five days later.

My favorite player was Steven Gerrard, who scored twice and set up Djibril Cisse for Liverpool’s first goal. Cisse was my mother’s favorite player because he had cool hair. Great ‘do, great finish. #LFC #YNWA
