22:19 – Berbatov falls in the box but play on says the referee.
22:20 –Van der Sar jumps high to save from a Bolton corner.

22:26 – United free kick. Ronaldo to take it. He steps up. He shoots. Jaaskelainen punches the ball into a corner. Great free kick by Ronaldo.

22:33 – Ronaldo again with a free kick on target. Jaaskelainen safely clutches the ball into his chest.
22:36 – [SGP] Fernando Alonso can’t believe it. His car stopped for no apparent reason. He could’ve got pole position. Now he’s out of qualifying.

22:42 – Brilliant play from Bolton. Muamba nearly put Bolton ahead. He shoots wide in front of goal. Bolton’s best chance so far.

22:48 – Half-Time at Old Trafford. The score stays 0-0.
22:49 – Second qualifying round update. Hamilton nearly out at 10 place. Massa leads the pack. Third round starts in a moment. Hamilton survives by 0.07 seconds!! He goes onto the pole position shoot-out as Massa and Kovalainen are fastest from Raikkonen and Vettel, followed by Rosberg, Glock, Kubica and Heidfeld, then Nakajima and Hamilton....

23:08 – United were almost upfront. Ronaldo’s shot hits the post and Jaaskelainen safely collects it.
23:11 – Bolton win a free kick from Berbatov’s foul. The ball deflected by Tevez for a corner. Bolton with a corner…cleared.
23:29 – To recap, United got a penalty. Ronaldo fall in the penalty area. Gary Megson was furious. He feels it shouldn’t be a penalty. And the replay show he’s right. Poor decision by the referee. Ronaldo shoots. Keeper sent the wrong way. GOAL! United 1 – Bolton 0
23:33 – Double substitution for United. Rooney and Scholes in. for Tevez and Anderson out.
23:37 – GOAL!!! Ronaldo run with ball on the left. Back heels it to Rooney. Rooney shoots. Rooney scores. United 2 – Bolton 0. Less than 15 minutes to go.

My Destiny

So I took one of those tests recommended by cloudy a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away which tells you "Which Final Fantasy Character Are You?"
So I took the test, answered some silly question and this is what I got.

Final Fantasy Character Test

I know I know. How can this be? I like FF8 as it is the first RPG I've ever played on the Playstation. But Rinoa? She's supposed to be my Squall's girlfriend. I don't even have a hint of spirited and warm personality.
So I take the test again and this time...

Final Fantasy Character Test

That's more like it. The test accurately tells me that I am cold and anti-social. Yeah right!
You can take the test by clicking the link below.
