So things are still not 100% in terms of logistics. But we are all set to go. Small hiccups here and there.. some foreign players are missing (hope they realize thats a pay cut).

SRK panicked for a while, we have effectively quieted him. Vijay Mallya is a saving grace, he knows what its like to put money into these ventures (Force India etc)… you lose money initially… and hope to make money later… in any case VM makes tons of money on hooch. Hes using this entire IPL exercise to advertise his “mineral water”

Oh and by the way on a totally different note, I wish Suresh Kalmadi would shut up. Hes saying that atheletes who skipped out on the run missed a historic moment¬†(you know hes targeting Sachin). Well Kalmadi saab, my request to you.. stick to your business.. oh and try to improve sports without groveling. I know you are jealous of our achievements in cricket. Perhaps if you spend some time administering instead of massaging your ego, we’d probably win something. So… shut up !!! I have a good mind to ask Pawarji to take some action against this bugger.. maybe sew his mouth up.

Note to self: Cancel all tickets meant for Kallu and family.

Uniforms and Names

March 14, 2008

So the teams have started unveiling their names and uniforms… the designers have been working day and night to come up with the most outlandish and “colorful” uniforms… red, gold, black, silver etc… with all that glitter, I think we can reduce the costs of lighting up the stadia as there will be plenty of reflected light…

The Bangalore team has been very cleverly named as “Royal Challengers”…. hic… Its a nice plug for Vijay Mallya’s brand… hey he paid $111 Million.. so for all I care he can call the team “Bangalore Brewers” (like the USA baseball team¬†Milawaukee Brewers).

They unveiled their uniforms earlier this week amidst great pomp…. Designers are going craaaazy
