Manchester City makes history with victory in FA Cup final

Not since the all-conquering Arsenal Ladies team of 2007 has a team won the FA Cup, League Cup and Premier League title.

First half goals from David Silva and Gabriel Jesus — although there was some debate as to whether Raheem Sterling got the final touch — gave City a deserved lead at the break, though it wasn’t all plain sailing.

Roberto Pereyra had a glorious chance to give Watford the lead early on but was unable to find a way past Ederson to finish off a scintillating counter attack.

It proved to be the wake-up call City needed and it didn’t once look like relinquishing the lead after Silva opened the scoring just a few minutes later.

As Watford pressed and probed for a way back into the game in the second half, it left itself exposed on the break.

Kevin De Bruyne ended the final as a contest on the hour mark, receiving the ball from Jesus before showing remarkable composure to round Heurelho Gomes and slot into an empty net.

Kevin De Bruyne celebrates scoring City's third goal.

City got a fourth soon after through Jesus and now had more history in its sights. Only twice in FA Cup final history has a team scored more than four goals — Bury in 1903 and Blackburn in 1890.

It would soon equal Bury’s all-time record for biggest FA Cup final victory, as Sterling scored two quickfire goals inside the last 10 minutes to make it 6-0.

Though it was a painful day for everyone involved at Watford, its fans never stopped supporting their team. But by the time the sixth goal went in, even Pep Guardiola was looking somewhat embarrassed by the score.

Sterling, who grew up on an estate in the shadow of Wembley as it was being built, said winning the FA Cup at the stadium he used to cycle past was a “dream come true.”

His captain, Vincent Kompany, praised Guardiola for the relentless intensity he instills in this talented squad every year.

“It starts with the manager, who set the standard at the start of the season,” he told BT Sport. “It’s a positive group with young players, talented.

“As soon as we scored the two goals and they had to come and press, it opened the game up. It wasn’t as easy as the score says, but what a season and what a tremendous club.”

‘The Big Bang Theory’ final taping was full of emotions

‘The Big Bang Theory’ final taping was full of emotions

‘The Big Bang Theory’ final taping was full of emotions

There is a big bazinga coming, and Mayim Bialik wants to see it play out.

Like most sets, those used on “The Big Bang Theory” are segments that don’t easily flow from one to another. Leonard (Johnny Galecki) and Penny’s (Kaley Cuoco) kitchen, for example, does not share a wall with a hotel hallway on the show. But the door to the apartment once shared by Leonard and Sheldon does, in fact, lead to the hallway set and a formerly broken elevator.

In the scene we’re watching from the opening minutes of the final episode of “The Big Bang Theory,” Penny and Amy (Bialik) have just returned from getting their dresses from the tailor. Amy is jazzed that her dress had to be taken in and Penny’s had to be taken out.

As Amy and Sheldon leave, the attention stays on Leonard and Penny.

From the other side of the now-closed door, Bialik peaks around the fake wall to watch the rest of the scene.

Leonard wants to know if Penny thinks Amy knows their secret. He doesn’t say it explicitly right away, but the audience watching from the bleacher-style seats instantly knows what he’s inferring and gasps erupt.

The crowd reacts as if they’ve just found out a best friend is pregnant. There’s joy and some even look a little glassy eyed.

As they express their glee, Bialik turns toward the audience from the set below the stands, smiling ear to ear. As the reaction and scene continues, she keeps watching them as they watch the show. She’s taking it all in.

In many ways, the characters on “The Big Bang Theory” have become friends to those watching. Over 279 episodes of television, they’ve laughed, cried and geeked out with Penny, Leonard, Sheldon, Raj, Howard, Bernadette and Amy.

During the breaks in taping, some of the people in attendance for the final taping speak to their fellow fans about what the series has meant to them. Many hit on a similar theme: the show made them proud to be themselves.

When “The Big Bang Theory” debuted in 2007, it was an ode to the different, to the ostracized, to the lovably dorky. But what was once known as geek culture is now accepted as just culture. Whether that was, at least in part, the show’s doing is debatable, but it is undeniable that “The Big Bang Theory” has brought people together online and in real life.

Some audience members talk about the friends they’ve made through their love of the show. One man says it brought his family closer together.

A family, too, has formed on the set of “The Big Bang Theory.” It’s trite now for cast members and actors to say that about any production, but the tears on the final day of taping prove it true nonetheless for this cast and crew.

Costume designer Mary T. Quigley, who is fittingly wearing a tiara on this final night, receives a champion’s acknowledgment from Galecki at one point. He raises her arm like she’s just become a prize fighter.

Other crew members get brief moments in the spotlight as the man charged with keeping the audience’s energy up during lulls in filming reads their names and honors different departments.

Creator Chuck Lorre makes a surprise appearance to slate the final scene of the taping, and he’s given his own hero’s welcome.

It truly has taken a village, as they say, to make the show happen every week.

Galecki says every moment has been “a dream come true” in a speech to the crowd.

“It’s never lost on us it’s because all of you,” he tells the audience.

More than 300,000 people want ‘Game of Thrones’ final season remade

More than 300,000 people want ‘Game of Thrones’ final season remade

“ David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have proven themselves to be woefully incompetent writers when they have no source material (i.e. the books) to fall back on,” the petition reads. “This series deserves a final season that makes sense. Subvert my expectations and make it happen, HBO!”

The goal is to gather 500,000 signatures of people dissatisfied with how the eighth and final season of the show is playing out.

Even if some people aren’t digging it, they certainly are watching it.

According to HBO (which is owned by CNN’s parent company), Season 8 of the series is averaging 43 million viewers per episode in gross audience, an increase of more than ten million viewers compared to Season 7.

“Game of Thrones” penultimate episode, titled “The Bells,” which Sunday, was watched by a record 18.4 million viewers across all of HBO’s platforms.

That exceeded the previous series high of 17.8 million viewers two weeks ago for “The Long Night” episode which focused on the Battle of Winterfell.

The much anticipated series finale is set to air this Sunday.

The showrunners knew there would be plenty of debate over the final season.

Benioff and Weiss talked to Entertainment Weekly before it started airing and Benioff told EW, “From the beginning, we’ve talked about how the show would end.”

“A good story isn’t a good story if you have a bad ending,” he said. “Of course we worry.”

CNN has reached out to HBO for comment.
