Belated Celebrations

Wonder why are we celebrating a world cup match which we won some 25 years ago! I mean come on... do we ever celebrate a scientific discovery done yesterday like this? There is a diamond studded bat on auction and the proceedings of which will go to the players! I wonder why? They are all stinkingly rich anyways. If at least the proceedings went to charity it was ok.
They won the world cup match.. very well and good. You congratulate them "then"... all the more well and good. You shower them with goodies... and do whatever. But celebrating it after 25 years sounds very funny and "cheap". Its as if we cannot win anymore so we might as well celebrate "one" that we won some eons ago!
I love the game.. but I hate the people in the game. Its becoming suffocatingly crickety these days!!!

So right! They have made it like there is no other game other than cricket. These IPL matches are nose blocking..,

I know, its all "Media-cracy"(pun intended)!

Yes ! Yes !

25 years on & recreating the scene at Lords is so tacky.

How about recreating our discoveries. Our other achievements...!

@veena: Forget about any other "sport". There is absolutely nothing else at all... on TV, in papers.. everywhere!

@kavi: exactly!

ha ha ha wow i agree with u completely. I have some friends who are so fanatic bout cricket that they threaten and insult their own friends for silly cricket related arguments. my god it gets pretty intense.

why all the hype... they are gettin paid whether they win or lose so I dont really understand all the patriotic fervor goin around. (sorry if I insulted any cricket fan).
