*Warning: Another CWG post! Leave, if you are bored already!*
Are you watching the Games? Please tell me you are! I am absolutely having a blast here! And this post, is of course about some of my thoughts on the Games..
The tickets were so totally worth! I had SO much fun on Saturday at the Tennis finals. My hands are still hurting from all the cheering and clapping we did for Sania Mirza! Too bad she didn’t win, but to her credit, she actually played well! Till the last ball. With the crowd cheering her for every shot, there was little else she could do, but hey, she didn’t disappoint us. The audience was fantastic, to say the least! My Dad kept pointing out how silent the Wimbledon audience are and how noisy we are, but in our defence, if we don’t get to be noisy in Saddi Dilli, where else do we get to? Hmm? Bolo?
The poor Aussie counterpart had a rough time, complaining to the referee about the booing crowds, especially when the collective sound of “Once More” would go up every time she made a foul! That was fun!
This is the stadium, by the way, before the match started:
And Sania in action:
We also caught the Bronze medal match in the Men’s Doubles. It was an All-Indian affair, which means, I saw the four cutest men in Indian Tennis circuits! Yayy! So, I did a little survey, in my mind, of course. “Who’s the cutest of them all?” And we have the results as follows:
Number 4: Rohan Bopanna – He’s good, but he still lacks the charisma. Needs to work on that!
Number 3: Leander Paes – He is SO aggressive! Totally bowled me over, but hey, that chest thumping thing doesn’t work for me! Sorry.
Number 2: Somdev Devvarman- Just check him out, will you? Just a kid! But, he plays really well..
And that of course means, that the Number 1 spot goes to none other than our very own, MAHESH BHUPATI! *Droooooool*
He is really really dashing, plays very well, does not thump his chest that often and is such a gentleman! My favorite!
Okay, so I am done drooling. Now on to the real Sports!
I am in love with all Sports persons! It takes real spirit to go out there and perform for the nation. Even someone like Sania, whose pathetic service makes the worst tennis players cringe, even she showed pluck and gumption in the court! That really impressed me. I am thinking of taking up a sport. After much shortlisting and analysis, I have decided the only game I can play comfortably could be Wrestling. Stop gagging or gawking or whatever you just did.
I think I can do this. My only condition is that the opponent’s face needs to masked with the face of the most irritating people from my office! And then watch me thrash them. Dhishoooom Dhishoooom. Ha.
I can even make the game more interesting by portraying the mask of a different person in every match! I have loads of irritating people on my list. That way, I will become the audience’ favorite!
On a more serious note, I have the tickets for tomorrow’s Badminton matches! And after Saturday’s experience, I am really really excited to watch Saina Nehwal play. But I promise you, I will not post anymore on CWG. Not because I pity you, simply because I am off to Hyderabad on Wednesday for a long weekend trip and that leaves me with little or no time to post about the Games I will watch tomorrow. Hyderabad will surely give me more fodder for the blog! Hopefully.
On a non-CWG note, I got a haircut yesterday! Woohoo! Haircuts always keeps me in good spirits! Which would also explain why I wrote such a happy-happy, “no crib or rant entailed” post on a MONDAY morning!
I also realized, that today would be the penultimate day when I have to come to office at 8 in the morning! Phew. Immense relief.
Have a great week ahead!
PS: On a “couldn’t be more” unrelated note, I dreamt of the Pondicherry beach last night, God knows why! And the repercussion of that is the continuous replay of the song “Gori Teri Aankhen Kahe” by Lucky Ali and Kavita!, in my head. Such a beautiful song, ain’t it? Do check it out here, if you want to refresh yourself!
