SPORTS GYAAN...

Football fever is here at ma place also…Posters, flexeboards, slogans of the different teams in the World Cup Football at each and every corner of the streets... There are two flex boards at ma bus stop raised by two fans associations here...One is for Argentina and the other is for Brazil...The Argentinean supporter slogan goes like this “Players of Argentina are like the brave tigers who is lead by the lion Maradona and We know that this team is gonna win”… On the opposite side is the Brazilian supporter flex which goes like “Here are the yellow soldiers, Brazilians; best with their legs and hands and therefore the “lion and the baby goats” can rest in the forest...” I giggled as I studied both the flexes…: P: P: P

Be it cricket or football I don’t have any idea about sports, though I was a very good athlete during ma school days…Of course I know how the umpire shows the hand gestures for out, four and six in cricket…There was an incident that happened when I was in ma college...All ma friends are crazy about sports especially Cricket…So once there is an ODI or any other test matches going on, all I could hear in ma class is about cricket, runs and scores…And of course I didn’t know a word about this game..Like someone said ‘Cricket for me its like eleven players running after a ball’...One fine afternoon we were coming to class after our lunch...Obviously ma friends were talking about cricket...How Dhoni got duck...How another guy got ‘out’ and blabla…I was getting annoyed and irritated...All I know is some Bollywood-Hollywood scoops…So I thought of something that I could say related to cricket so that I could outshine them...Suddenly WHAT AN IDEA SIR JI???I thought of the Bollywood Khabar I saw the previous night and I spat out …”Did u guys know????? …Robin Singh the Cricketer is dating Deepika Padukone now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”……

Ma friends who were so busy chit chatting over cricket heard me, turned to me and asked “Deepika dating who?????”…I felt like I was floating in the air as I outwitted them with ma Cricket Gyaan…I smiled for a second and reassured ma answer “You know this guy; Robin Singh…the young Cricketer...Kinda playboy man!!...He has dated Kim Sharma before... You know…Now He is after our Deeps”…
The moment I stopped there was a laughter session by ma friends…They were hurting themselves with their laughter I felt...I was puzzled…They announced ma cricket gyaan to the whole class the next moment and I stood before them as if I was stripped off ma skin…

The next day morning the moment I entered the class one of ma classmates shouted “heyya do anyone know who is dating Deepika Padukone now???” And the rest of the class shouted “NOOOOOOOO”…And this guy shouted “The young cricketer ROBIN SINGH” and I was wondering where to hide myself from the class mates …: P: P: P


Now this is the ultimate one...There used to be inter college football match held in our college...So once the opposing teams were our college and a near by college…Our college were about to lose the game when at last our captain made a goal and the whole team was celebrating it by embracing and clapping..Our Director Academic who is in his sixties, was in the car returning from his office that he saw the boys cheering up...He was so happy that he got out of the car, ran to them and embraced the boys one by one and congratulated them and as the boys were turning by,our Director Academic asked the captain “By the way boy; HOW MANY RUNS DID YOU TAKE?”..The captain ran away with his whole strength thinking @*/$*&^$@! $!!!!
