In between getting stoned, playing some badminton and a midnight bowling session, not to mention a lot of sleep, weekend went past before you know it. Or I should have said before I know it. It was fun, but seriously, it's time we have three day weekends. Bowling was the fun bit. We had two teams and the agreements were made as to losers would buy ice cream to the winning team. Of course we won and had ice cream. At midnight.
England regained the Ashes, and PR is being a Kalu Suddha with pumped up over it and all. On a serious note though, I will miss Freddie Flintoff. Of course he would continue to play ODIs and T20s, but it's not the same as in Tests. I'm going to miss his brutal and brilliant spells, the ones that make you all awed and inspired. I love his pose too, the one he so theatrically gets into after getting a wicket. Cricket seriously needs some more lager than life characters like him.
Talking about cricket, Dilly's two knocks were amazing too. Hope he'd make sure that they are not one offs and continue doing the same. We are seriously one opener away from being the best Test nation.
Also I feel for the Aussies. I know lot of people don't like them, but I loved their cricket. They played hard. They played to win and they took cricket to a new level during the past decade or so, and nobody still haven't been able to match them. They are not the #1 ranked team anymore because they have fallen short of the very standards they set - not because others went past them. It'd take a special team to match what they had done in the past decade.
I watched New York, a new Hindi movie by Yash Chopra. I think so. It was a pretty OK movie. No stupid songs where the guy and the chick run around trees and such, nor there were dishum dishum type fight scenes. It talks about how people of Asian descent - specially Muslims - got harassed after 9/11 in detention centres like Guantanamo Bay. How they were systematically rounded up and harassed and all. The plot was good and the movie was watchable except for the climax. I mean, why do the Indians fuck up all the good stories in the end? They surely try to make things a bit too dramatic and fail miserably. Hope the ending was better.
I downloaded it from here, a Sinhala fellow blogger and he provides the links to torrents as well. You must check it out if you haven't already. Good place to find torrents, without having to go through torrent sites and all the comment to check if they are not fakes.
Happy Week ahead fellas!
