This weekend saw some of the best sporting action I have seen in quite some time! The F1 season is back with a flourish! Many rule changes, including a damn confusing qualifying! I kinda agree with sukhi! Damn Friggin Mad Max! But anyhoo, gives many loopholes, which teams like Ferrari and Renault are gonna blow wide open to beat my fav team - McLaren! Why McLaren? Well coz of Kimi and McLaren always has been the better car, in terms of speed and pickup in ANY F1 season, save for the last to last!! This season is gonna be awesome! That much I can assure you! And again, this time, Kimi has ALL the chances to finish 1st! Isn't it kinda evident by his last place start and 3rd place finish? That man can drive! If Kimi joins Ferrari next year and Schumy is still with Ferrari, I can assure you, maybe just maybe, I may support Kimi for the driver's championship!
And the other huge record breaking sporting event? Aaah, CRICKET, the Indian National pastime! Worst part - watching Australia v South Africa!
Reason: Record breaking score set by Australia for SA to chase - 434/4 in 50 overs
An unchoked SA, kicked ass and left Ponting stumped when they broke the highest total in an ODI [One Day International] to 438 with a ball to spare! Australia were just overwhelmed by the chase! I mean Ponting had to play the sportsman and not the bitch and give Herschey [Herschelle Gibbs] the Man of the Match award for his 175 off just 100 odd deliveries!! sukhi tho disagres with me here! I think this was indeed one of the better matches seen by many!
Yes, cricket is about batting AND bowling AND fielding. This match had a lotta batting, evident of course by the humongous record breaking scores posted by both the teams!
It had average bowling, where in about 13 wickets fell in the whole match!
It did have a fair amount of fielding! Most of the wickets were catches and some fairly good at that [Eg. Mike Hussey's catch during the suddent onslaught of the Aussie bowlers, rather the sudden depression in the batting of South Africa]
The nailbiting finish just added to the whole package! Yes, maybe NOT THE best match in history, but for sure one of the good ones rite?
And yeah, in football, Man Utd. kicked New Castle Utd's ass!! Yippee overall, really happy with what happened over the weekend!
On another note, I have registered to take my GRE on the 9th of May! Lord help me in studying the wordlists and prepping for this gruesome tryst in front of me! Will most probs be buying a laptop in a month as well!!
