Where is the man we want the most, and now?

(written in June 2010)

Have you noticed what a difference a vowel makes?

If you spell your name Sania, you are condemned to lose in the first or, at best, the second, round matches in big tournaments. If you do an anagram to Saina, you win tournaments or at least make the semis or the finals. Sania Mirza Malik, please note!

There is a big problem ahead in the World Cup 2010 – I am surprised that statesmen, commentators and experts haven’t cottoned on to this one yet.

The second round world cup matches are like so:

  • Uruguay – S Korea
  • USA – Ghana
  • Germany – England
  • Argentina – Mexico
  • Netherlands – Slovakia
  • Brazil – Chile
  • Paraguay – Japan
  • Spain – Portugal

If all goes as I expect, Uruguay, USA, Germany, Argentina, Netherlands, Brazil, Paraguay, and Spain all win, the situation will be

  • Uruguay v Germany
  • Netherlands v Paraguay
  • USA v Argentina
  • Brazil v Spain

And if Germany, Netherlands, Argentina and Brazil, woe is me! Brazil meets Argentina in the semis!! The two best teams in the World Cup 2010 will NOT meet in the FINAL!!!

Lalit Modi – where are you when we need you to do some major fixing in this schedule? Why is the man wasting time in some piddly thing called cricket T20?? The world needs you, Lalit!! AND NOW!!!!


About thecrestedjay

I am passionate about football, jazz, classic rock, classic movies, crime, science fiction and P G Wodehouse. And also about NBA, western and Indian classical music. Since the wife will also read this blog, I cannot reveal my other passions in public. Have one son who plays the guitar, spent some time as an animator and now works for a digital marketing and advertising company. I also have one (1) wife. I spent a lot of my time on my music and books collection. I also have a passion for travelling but not a great deal of time and money to spend on this. Hopefully, in the future, I'll be able to do so.
