Not much to scribble on here tonight. The thing about major tournaments, and I will include –
1. FIFA World Cup
2. European Championships
3. Cricket World Cup
4. T20 World Cup
5. Indian Premier League
is that once they are underway, they do make for excellent entertainment for the evenings. The even better thing about them is that they all generally show up in successive years (of course the IPL is an annual competition). Hence, the European Championships in Poland & Ukraine have been occupying most of my evenings lately. I’m backing the fantastic German team to go on and win it, although defending champions Spain and France will surely have different ideas. Who are you supporting ?
After a run of 20 straight nights of posting on the blog, I missed the one on Friday. I still intend to have 31 new posts in a month since that memorable night in Munich as a tribute to my European Champions Chelsea.
Today was another day of studying for the GMAT ( although as it turned out once again, only for a couple of hours ), some intense hours of tennis, and the Hell in the Cell UNO night. That last part might seem weird but we have a very competitive ( full of frequent scuffles ) UNO battle going on in the house. Tonight’s epic battle ended in an unbelievable 4 way tie, with the defending champion DK retaining his title, after creating some of the most dramatic moments in the final games (yes, I was this (.) close ).
Confession Time – It has also been a couple of days when I was successfully played by a girl after a long, very long time. Gracious in defeat. Payback awaits 😀
Tomorrow, I plan to do a piece on Architecture as a career option in India. I’ll try to keep it as informative as possible. Happy reading !
Holland deserved to win the European cup-umm yes,maybe,seein de way they played in the grp stages……..
bt lukin at the way they played against Hiddinks czars,its onlyrite dat they’re outie………
Worst ov all,sneijder(1 ov my 3 oranje favs along wid robben n van persie) disappointed me the most,always lookin 2 shoot from range n employing a very selfish game,clearly the russians had a lot more d-penetrations n created a lot more dangerous situations(notably 5-6 empty front ov the goal crosses,ov wich 2 were converted)……
n dat boy Arshavin (no wonder Zenit wr UEFA cup winners)…..stunning!!
As i’d prediceted in an earlier post on another site,never forget bigg guus…..
so i’d luk out 4 da russians if i wr spain altho guus never goes past the semis….
Earlier post 4 every1s viewing:
Who will win Euro-08
I hope its either Holland or Germany altho the top seeds to win would be:
1-Portugal(Team to beat in the tournament,Ronaldo) n Germany(Probably better than Portugal one on one,bt consistency against other teams will be tested)
2-Italy(Very strong on most days,bt lack a clear goal scoring striker)
3-Spain(Trinity of Torres,Fabregas,Villa shud come good)
4-France(Mix of age nd youth bt in their first major tounament post Zidane)
5-Holland(Flair nd attack,bt infighting nd star status lets ’em down,difficult group)
6-Czech(Weak in attack w/o Rosicky,solid defensive mentality)
7-Russia(Never forget Big Guus)
8-Greece(defending champions,considered outsiders,bt the only team to remain unbeaten in qualifiers)
Of the others, Sweden,Croatia, n Turkey r strong nd may cause upsets on their day,bt winning wud be a far shot….
As for the Germans i still back them n feel they hv the easiest route to the final (the Turks fite bt r left wid 2 few a warriors…..), n u cn never kno wot happens then (hope its nt a lame duck as the WC-06 final,decided on penalties,no more penalties 4 me plzzzz(zzz,o i’m nt sleeping already)…..
