Soooper Sunday

3 Mar

The TV Channels have drummed it into our heads that yesterday was “Sooper” sunday with the India Under 19 cricket team winning the World Cup and the Indian’s beating the Aussies in the first of the One-Day finals.

Congrats to the Under 19 team. For the seniors, well done but theres two more to go…

As usual the TV guys were glad that they had something to talk about other than the budget and politics and the went on and on and on.. analyzing every little twist and turn… my favorite analyst is Kris Srikkanth.. heres what he had to say on the two games…(best if read in a continuous fashion)

    it was really a soooooooooooooooper sunday. both matches won in style and Under 19 team was lucky this time to gain the cup as usual SA lady luck is still not with them.
    seniors just played and superrrrrrrrrr innings by sachin and whole team played their part and let us hope Ricky’s words remain true the finals will end with second match.
    congrats to both and good luck to seniors for next match

    @neela: You need time to catch your breath even listening to Kiccha speak…
    @Ray: LOL…I dont think you’ve had the pleasure of listening to Mr. Kris Srikkanth.. he often ends statements before he starts them.. its like hes trying to catch a bus or hes really in a hurry to go….

    Over here the “best” comments (and most intelligent) come from the AFL footy scene. Like these:

    “Nobody in football should be called a genius. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein.” (Mick Malthouse – Collingwood Coach)

    “I owe a lot to my parents, especially my mother and father.” (Shane Wakelin – Collingwood)

    “I’m going to graduate on time, no matter how long it takes.” (Peter Bell – Fremantle – on his University Law studies)

    “You guys line up alphabetically by height,” and “you guys pair up in groups of three, then line up in a circle.” (Barry Hall – Sydney Captain at training)

    “I can’t really remember the names of the clubs that we went to.” (Brock Maclean – Melbourne on whether he had visited the Pyramids during his visit to Egypt)

    “He’s a guy who gets up at six o’clock in the morning regardless of what time it is.” (Essendon coach Kevin Sheedy on James Hird)

    “It’s basically the same, just darker.” (Jonathan Brown – Brisbane on night Grand Finals vs Day Games)

    “I told him, ‘Son, what is it with you. Is it ignorance or apathy? He said, ‘Barass, I don’t know and I don’t care’ “.(Ron Barassi talking about Gary Cowton)

    “I want to kick 70 or 80 goals this season, whichever comes first.” (Barry Hall – Sydney when asked about the upcoming season)

    “Luke Hodge – the 21 year old, who turned 22 a few weeks ago.” (Commentator & ex Hawthorn player Dermott Brereton)

    “Chad had done a bit of mental arithmetic with a calculator.” (Port Adelaide coach Mark Williams)

    “He scored that goal after only 22 seconds – totally against the run of play.” (Dermott Brereton)

    “We actually got the winning goal three minutes from the end but then they scored.” (Ben Cousins – West Coast Eagles … maybe Ben was thinking of ’scoring’ something else)

    “I’ve never had major knee surgery on any other part of my body” (Luke Darcy – Western Bulldogs)

    “That kick was absolutely unique, except for the one before it which was identical.” (Dermott Brereton)

    “Sure there have been injuries and deaths in football – but none of them serious.” (AFL Operations Manager Adrian Anderson)

    “If history repeats itself, I should think we can expect the same thing again.” (AFL Chief Executive Andrew Demetriou – pure genius)

    “I would not say he (Chris Judd) is the best centreman in the AFL, but there are none better.” (Dermott Brereton)

    “I never comment on umpires and I’m not going to break the habit of a lifetime for that prat.” (Richmond coach Terry Wallace)

    (Garry Lyon) “Have you ever thought of writing your autobiography?” (David Schwarz) “On what?”

    “Well, either side could win it, or it could be a draw.” (Dermott Brereton)

    “Strangely, in slow motion replay, the ball seemed to hang in the air for even longer.” (Dermott Brereton)

    In continuation it was a cool tuesday and Aussies were outplayed by indians to clinch the tri series finals at 2-0. Ricky Ponting has to eat his own pie the finals will not go for 3rd match. he was overconfident. kudos indian team for a wholehearted and committed display each one played their role to perfection three cheers to team india
