the games, the games

Nothing will be allowed to disrupt the games. Can’t drink the water, can’t breathe the air, can’t bathe in the water, can’t guarantee the purity of the food, can’t guarantee the safety or construction of the venues — Nothing can be allowed to disrupt the games. If they have to wipe out Tibetan and Urghurs and half the ethnic minorities to do it, nothing will be allowed to disrupt the games. Ah, so what will the world do? Boycott? China will bristle and NOTHING WILL BE ALLOWED TO DISRUPT THE GAMES! Economic sanctions? China has lots of reserves and makes the Soviets in 1980 look like Lichtenstein in terms of economic clout. NOTHING WILL BE ALLOWED to disrupt the games.

Crusader AXE SMASH!!


tendulkar 38

it’s been a while, and it shows. he got out in the high 90s a lot of times in 2007.

there has been no one (as far as i know)who has played any sport under so much pressure as Sachin R. Tendulkar. from the age of 16, he has been carrying the hopes of a populous, (mostly)cricket-crazy nation in the wake of scandals that have embarassed so many people, through many injuries big and small, through personal losses, he has performed day in and day out giving his best for the team every time.

to play so consistently in a sport that tests your endurance every time you step out for nearly 20 years, is a feat few people can think of achieving. and to be so humble while doing so, is even more amazing.

and this is only his test career. in the shorter format, he is even more special a player if you look at the numbers.

this man is once-in-a lifetime player, and i am glad it happened in this lifetime.
