What Next?

The World Cup is over.
The Wimbledon Champioships are over.

Now what the heck do I do with my free time?..... Yes. Do all those things I put off cos of the above two events. Blading, kathak revisions (cos i'm getting my butt kicked in class), move into apartment, read all the orientation crap for work, renew my driver's license, write the 5 or more articles that I was supposed to finish this summer......gosh.....it's going to be busy eh?

So let's talk about the World Cup Final. GOOOOOOOO ITALIAAAA!! :-) I'd been rooting for Italy since Mexico lost. Somehow...had a soft spot for them. And then of course, when they lost ( sniff )...I started rooting for Italy. Grosso, Del Piero, Cannavaro, Buffon, Pirlo...seriously...such amazing talent!! And their defence kicks ass! Needless to say, I'm THRILLED to bits that they won.

Very shocking to see Zizou exit the way he did....if only he could have held out for 10 more mins...he would have sailed home free. Irrespective of France losing. Well...such a silly stupid act! His greatness is tarnished now. But whatever...Zizou still rocks.

How the hell do we wait another 4 years??? Like Max suggested....have a World Cup every year dammit!!

GOL!!!!,

Sure, lets have it once a year, so that it gets to be another boring yearly event. I think it'd be cool to somehow change the ordering of the Summer Olympics, Winter Olympics, World cup soccer and World cup cricket in consecutive years. That way we get a major "world" event every year! :-) Whatdya think? (I cant think of a better global event than world cup cricket to fill the fourth spot, but its pretty limited in its "worldly" nature and can be replaced by something else).

Yeah moi ITALY won - happy :D.

Zidane- well what can one say. He was screaming after his header was punched out by Buffon and frustration creeped in. But again this is not the first time he's gone mad ...

But yeah the sporting (sport watching rather) activities have come to a sudden halt. Next thing - Crict WC maybe :( :(

Amrita said...

@K...I LOOOVE your plan. And of course intersperse all these major sporting events with U2/Aerosmith/Pearl Jam concerts ;)

@Rajesh...exactly...I'm happy for Italy. But Zidane should have acted according to his age and experience. Just leaves a sour taste you know? Yeah...I'm gonna throw myself into concerts....to make up for free time ;)

well the charm is having the soccer cup once every 4 years or else they would end just like the UEFA or the club matches...i do agree all the sporting bodies shld convene and hold events one after another...like wimbeldon clashing with WC was a bad idea...

Amrita said...

@Nav.. I agree. Having the WC every year would kill it's charm. Better organization is definitely needed.

I miss the world cup so much I might just get into local leagues and national championships *starts seizing from withdrawal*

Amri rawks for rooting for Mexico. Most people pick teams who have an actual chance of winning ;)

Maybe next time...
