Weekend Review

It was a bad start to the weekend. It was Friday midnight me with my friends were waiting in the Kempagouda bus stand to board the KSRTC bus to Coimbatore. The scheduled 11pm bus came 45 min delayed. The delay was because of the chaos that was in the bus stand due to unregulated traffic in and out of the bus stand. When we boarded the bus there was more bad news. There was a total of 36 seats in the bus. But there were passenger up to seat number 43 waiting for the bus. My friends were holding seats between 36-39. The driver or the conductor was not responsible for this, but they are the only person answerable to this. Few seats were blocked on quota basis, finally after a long argument they were distributed to my friends. Still 2 more person's were asked to take the box for the entire travel (which was unacceptable). Finally 2 passengers did not board the bus, at last everyone where given the travel and we were still in hosur road by 1am. Finally reached Coimbatore by 8:30. So better not take tickets that are beyond seat number 36. :)

World cup 2007
God should bless me with the patience to watch another India match. Its miserable to see so many big names fail. who is to be blamed? every department of the team. You can't drop catches in such a big stage. Give the Indian team a whip at their back. One thing can be said at this point. During the WC 99. India faced Australia in the super six match. Both India and Australia need to secure 3 wins to move on to the next stage. They said who ever wins this battle they will go on to win the world cup. Australia won the match and the cup. Similarly if India beat the lankans they have the fire to take on the world cup. Else better they catch the next flight to India and shoot more ads for money. Also Bangladesh is to be credited with a superb performance by its young guns.
Another subcontinent team, Pakistan. I don't call it a defeat its humiliation. They cant play such poor cricket against the side who are playing their first major tournament. ICC was spoken by the media for making the tournament a boring one by making low grade teams to play against professional sides. But now they are proven wrong. All but cricket is an unpredictable game. I got a funny SMS quoting,
Inzy: Hi Dravid, see you man. We are leaving WI in the next flight.
Dravid: Oh! wait for one more day Inzy we might also join you!

Blues Vs Red Devils
The title race is getting heated as we near the end of this season. Man U were facing bolton. Sir Alex got to start this game without the lights of Scholes (under suspension), Saha & Solskjaer (injury). But still with the magical touch of Ronaldo & Rooney they managed to score 4. Bolton got a late constellation goal. Later that day Chelsea were against Shefield United. They were too much for SHU, goals rained in chelsea's favor sending a strong warning to ManU that they are still in contention for the title. Now 6 points separate the top two. Its going to be tight finish till the end.

Kimi :)
Finally the most awaited F1 2007 season started in Albert part, Melbourne Australia. A season with no shumi. It was a treat to watch all the drivers with their full strength. Teams shuffled, sponsors changed, its all happening out there. This season is going to be exciting. Kimi was at his best in his Ferrari. The Red machine was a master piece of technology tearing the air. Next team to watch was the Maclaren. They have a superb machine and former world champion. Massa made a superb drive starting last in the grid and finishing 6th. This season will be a race between Kimi, Alonso and Massa. Also team's strategy is going to play a big role since rules are changed for example the pit lane speed limit is reduced to 80km/hr from 100.

Apart from them, its a peaceful weekend at home. Will be back again to work on Tuesday morning.
Feel free to post your comment.

The Red Devils are having a smooth ride this season , but better beware of the "The Reds " (Liverpool) , might just run away with the precious Champions league ...
