Santa Singh?

Bye bye to bhai bhai

There's a line of defense going around saying Bhajji was provoked to play his forehand in the vicinity of Sreesanth's ear. Personally I haven't heard anything more stupid. As far as I remember, taking the law into your own hands is still a crime in this country. And if the BCCI won't oblige Sreesanth might want to refer the matter to the nearest cop coop.

Meanwhile the farcical drama to save Bhajji the blushes and a ban, touched soap operatic heights. The Turbanator and the Turbanated spoke of brotherly ties. And Sreesanth was adopted, perhaps without his prior consent. (Santhakumaran Sreesanth Singh? Or Santa Singh? He..he..he)

The final decision on this matter will still hover around cheeks, and the Turbanator might just have to pucker up for some very fervent kissing.

Notes from the IPL

The game seems to be further loaded in favour of batsmen. The boundaries are shorter.

The tables have turned. India now has the phirangs(cheerleaders) dancing for them.

The cheerleaders look fine, but the camera angles don't.

Sledging might become less prevalent. It's hard to be friendly team mates one day, and then be abusive opponents on another.

Cricket is taking on baseball hues. Finesse, style, and maybe even timing, will soon be lost causes.

I still wonder why Shane Warne retired. You will too if you've watched the Rajasthan Royals.

Blog and tackle

I understand the theory of not mixing politics and sports, but I fail to understand its application with regard to the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The world's largest sporting event will earn a huge sum of money for the Chinese Government. And as you know the bullets being pumped into Tibet don't come free.

Whose side are you on?

If it's China, you don't have to go any further than this.

If it's Tibet, copy these ads and post them on your blog, and pass the word on to other bloggers. If you're not a blogger, save the ads on to your computer and mail them out to as many people as you think might care.
