1:35am Thursday morning

Baseball fans on the east coast of America often complain about how the World Series games often end after midnight. I've always thought that was wrong, but tonight watching as the Champions League Final in Moscow finished at 25 to 2 in the morning local time I thought Muscovites and others in the east would probably be a welcome finish time of around midnight.

I just heard that starting next year the final will be played on a Saturday, which at least means more kids across Europe will be able to see the final, which is a great idea. Still, the game should start an hour or two earlier too, but that doesn't seem to be in the plans.
