I am sure most of the people watching the channel are not glued to the computer and know the result already. This match just completed.

I think people are checking their email logging into their accounts and see tickers all the time even if they are not looking for scores not to mention I wouldn't be surpised if ESPN isn't flashing scores on one of their other channels..

Also, how many nonchalant(sp?) fans are watching at 11:50pm? They need to change their programming ways in this new internet age they still program like people have no access to information, imo..

I still doubt many people watching knew the result. But there is no way to check either way.

I cause I doubt anyone would know who they are... or care.
