I remember that final between Barca and Manchester United. Messi's header was incredible, considering how short he is. United were outmatched everywhere on the pitch. That Barca side was something else.

Take me back to May 27, 2009

Let's go back to the 2000s.

The date is May 27, 2009, and it's a Wednesday. Babies who are born today will have the star sign Gemini. It is "Hump Day", so many are beginning to think about the weekend ahead.

The summer of 2009 has finally arrived. The weather has warmed up, and the evenings are brighter than usual. The school year is nearly finished. In the United States, the Memorial Day weekend of 2009 has recently come and gone. To many, this means that the summer has officially started. In America, the song "Boom Boom Pow" by The Black Eyed Peas is at the top of the singles charts, while "Bonkers" by Dizzee Rascal & Armand van Helden is the number-one song in the UK.

Barack Obama is the President of the United States, and the movie Night at the Museum II is at the top of the box office. Gordon Brown is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. On television, people are watching popular shows such as "Futurama", "24", "CSI: NY", and "Prison Break".

Meanwhile, in technology news, more and more people are beginning to use the Internet on their phones. This transition towards mobile Internet has been aided by the recent roll-out of faster 3G networks and the introduction of larger touchscreen phones. A growing social network called Facebook is beginning to steal users away from MySpace and Bebo. Video rental stores such as Blockbuster are struggling to compete with online streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu.

A music genre called Dubstep has started to go mainstream. It's 2009, so the music charts are filled with artists such as The Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga, Flo Rida, Taylor Swift and T.I. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson, Billy Mays, and Steve McNair would all still be alive.

People are playing video games such as "Spore", "Fallout 3", "Left 4 Dead", and "Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "Peppa Pig", "LazyTown", "Sonny with a Chance", and "Glee". Children are playing with toys such as Roboraptor, Iggle Piggle, Fast Talkin' Lightning McQueen, and WALL-E toys.
