What the ….? – Aug 18

18 Aug

A pretty slow week. Not enough idiocy around 😦

The whole week has seen a Tango between the Left bros led by Karat and the PM. Looks like the PM called their bluff and the left has no guts to pull the plug. Where else can they enjoy power without responsibility. Latest update, Honeymoon Over, Marraige Still On… hidden meaning… “We are desperate for power”. Of course Sitaram Kachori will deny all this.

Budhia’s (the kid runner) mom finally figured out that his coach was out to make money from him… looks like it took a while for that to sink in. Of course the coach is saying he sacrificed so much for Budhia etc etc… His punishment? He should be made to run the same distances that he made that poor kid run.

Somebody give Zaheer Khan a sock to stuff in his mouth… he came out against Dravid’s statement that the bowlers were tired.. Hey Zaheer… are you part of the team or are you packing it up to go to the ICL?

Sunil Gavaskar was voted India’s sports icon post independance… Is he? On another note, who was India’s sports icon pre-independance?

Did anyone see the video clip of Vivek Oberoi “apologizing” to Salman Khan? This qualifies for the “What the ….?” award for this week. The guy looked like an idiot.

    I saw Tendulkar took the coveted prize in NDTV poll. Where was this Gavaskar thingy?

    Still, all this is much better than Madame Sonia being one of the “60 architects” of post-independece India. Hit me hit me hit…KILL me !!! Went to the damn link through Srik’s blog here

    proved all for power (UPA govt) all for money (Budhia’s coach Zaheer !!!)
    certainly Gavaskar is not the post independence sports icon may be he is one of the
    but this poll gimmicks can do anything
    joke of the year is Madam Sonia one of the 60 Architiects of post independence India
    referred by DS above and detailed write up in srik’s blog

    maybe viveik had the correct idea (though i would disagree). but what he definitely lacked was poise and execution!

    @SB: Dhyan Chand would be the ideal choice…

    Vijay, why the …… such posts man? write something good to read 🙂

  7. Chitra August 20, 2007 at 12:14 pm #

    Nice post, Vijay. Like a nice wrap up. 🙂

  8. Vijay August 20, 2007 at 12:15 pm #

    @Chitra: Thanks.. by the way I have the tag ready.. will post soon

    re: veena’s comment: i sympathize with you bloggers. over there, chitra writes about her nice r2i experience, and some people (me too, i confess, sometimes 🙂 don’t like it, and/or disagree. and here vijay is ranting and raving, and people don’t like it either (veena and i have both called for a change in the posts – food is a good option :-)!

    vijay, note that you can blog about your dosa (and eat it too)? 😉

    Someone just asked me about ‘Vidyarthi Bhavan’ yesterday and I told them that they served good dosas, but nothing extraordinary…..

    But, I ahev to admit that when I amde that statement, Vijay’s face flashed in front of me…oh wait, I haven’t seen Vijay, have I? 😉

  11. Veena Shivanna August 21, 2007 at 2:58 am #

    s.b, thats a good one. Now that Vijay’s blogpost have hatrick appearances on bangalore mirror and he has he has more than 1/2 a million hits and good readers (shud say more frequent), Vijay should treat us at VB instead of just eating it alone….?
    What say Vijay ? Atleast hope you don’t get scared out of it, already the dollar rates are going haywire 🙂

    DS, that was good one. Now a days, its become more obvious to remember the bloggers first than the actual things or our own friends/relatives!

  12. Vijay August 21, 2007 at 5:07 am #

    Wow !!! SB and Veena agreeing on something is rare…

    @DS: Thanks for thinking of me.. did I appear with a “Dose” face?

    vishnu:dashaavatara::vijay:dosaavatara! (taking a leaf from ramki’s mysore-pakistan on the stud’s blog)
