Back...after long time

Ok..long time no updates. Reason...mixed...sort of, been busy since the vacation...then some computer problems...and then not much happening in real cricketing terms. Have been writing about off-field activities on Sight Screen.

I would rather spend twice as much time writing about real good cricket (preferably international matches) than on the repetitive off-field activities and meaningless matches(like Super series etc)

Anyways...just a filler...caught my eye on cricinfo...some really interesting quotes in the cricketing section. Do go read them in full....but here are some of my favorites:

"I was invited to Bush's ranch and when I said I had a home in Antigua, he asked me to explain cricket to him because it looks a bit like polo and baseball combined ... only without the horses. We discussed it for half an hour."
Allen Stanford, who is investing £16 million in West Indies cricket, explains the rudimentaries to the American President
So, one can rely on George Bush to always provide the relief! I wonder if he considers formula 1 as "sort of, like hockey(ice)...only with cars" :-) (and no, don't ask me to explain ;-)

"I just came for the food."
Andrew Flintoff tells it as it is and leaves ICC spin doctors spluttering in their pasta after being named joint Player of the Year at a glitzy event in Sydney
Although said in jest, it might have held true for Freddie some years ago!

and finally
"I thought it was a bit rude when the umpire gestured me with a finger so I showed my middle one back."
Crystal Palace midfielder Aki Riihilati shows why footballers will never be the new cricketers after he plays his first match
..and now we also know why we wont have a Finnish national cricket team ;-)

"I wonder if he considers formula 1 as "sort of, like hockey(ice)...only with cars" :-)" - too good...just too good. The smile just doesnt go away from my face
