No Ghee For You!

1 May

The Slings and Arrows of Outrageous Fortune are never-ending for our brave cricket warriors.

IBN reports that our heroes must now do without asli ghee ka khana and ice cream and survive on fruits, raw vegetables, coconut water and yellow dal. Hilariously enough, the article starts with:

Reversing the low morale of the Indian team seems to be on top priority as they assemble in Kolkata ahead of the Bangladesh tour.

Some unintentional humor by IBN there but getting back to the subject at hand: I’m certain Veeru’s morale won’t improve after this announcement.  He was well on his way to emulating Ranatunga (paunch-wise) and now, even that has been taken from him. Who said being an Indian cricketer was life on easy street? Can’t do advertisements, can’t eat, can’t take wives on tour…. life is no picnic for our “boys”.

    let better senses prvail with bothadmin and players too much is too bad
    they all should be practical and play for the country not looking at the
    only monetary gains.
    It was astnonishing to see some Indian Cricketer had contract with reference to
    his stay at creese. what a way to enter contract really he is a genius and should be
    in business I think there is no end to these with so many match fixing cases coming to light no body is above board as it appears.
    allow them to live like otheres then they will perform

    Just saw the report on IBN.. I wonder if now they can attribute game losses to hunger…

    P.S: I like the take off on the “Sienfeld” (No Soup for You!!!)
