Who is the 'Champ'?

The football fever has reached the climax. Today, at Johannesburg, Spain and Netherlands will battle for one ultimate pride. It’s already clear that we are going to crown a new champions tonight. Spain is the European Champions and Netherlands have not lost a single match in this tournament.

Comparing the past matches between these two teams, Spain has won in 4 occasions in their 8 head-to-head meetings. Netherlands have won in 3 matches, while the other one is a draw. Netherland has scored 12 goals against Spain, while Spain has scored 10 goals. It’s not an easy job to predict the winner in this finals (as we are not ‘Octopus’).

As far as World Cup experience is concerned, Spain has made 12 World Cup appearances, while Netherlands have only 8. But, these past statistics don’t matters. What the players exhibit today will only matter. I support Spain. But, the truth is I haven’t seen any matches of Spain in this World Cup. I support them because I like Spain’s Rafael Nadal (World No.1 Tennis Player). Also, Nadal will be on Johannesburg today to support his team.

Who will win the Golden Boot?

That’s the big question. It depends on David Villa of Spain and Sneijder of Netherlands. If both of these man, doesn’t score tonight, then Germany’s Thomas Muller will take the Golden Boot.. My favourite for this honour is also Muller.

Anything may happen today, but, it’s surely going to be history!…

Good news to spirited sporting fans all-over the country!

The Indian Hope

Saina Nehwal, World No. 3 Badminton Player,already the first Indian Badminton player to win Super Series Badminton Title, also the first to clinch the Singapore Open Super Series title last week, clinches her third Super Series Badminton title today. She is really a 20 year old marvel from Hyderabad. She successfully defended her Indonesian Open Championship. In the final, she defeated Japan’s Sayaka Sato 21-19, 13-21, 21-11.

It’s an hatrick for Saina who the Indian Open Grand Prix and the Singapore Open Super Series in the last 2 weeks. I am upset when she lost in the quaterfinals of the Beijing 2008 Olympics. But, she improved here form very much. So, I am confidently saying that gold in Commonwealth, Asian, Olympic etc., Badminton events will be ours!

India and our people are switching gradually from Cricket to the real sporting events. We are improving a lot in all sporting events. If there is no corruption in Sports Ministry, we can improve at the fastest pace. There are many Saina Nehwals left unnoticed in our country.

When they will come out?

Delhi’s calling :- “Come out and Play”

We’re saying :- “You corrupted officials, you got and we’ll play”

Come out and Play!

A chance to showcase India’s potential is 100 days to go! Ya, Commonwealth Games is just 100 days to go. This will showcase the world what we are made of. Commonwealth Games Delhi 2010 are set to begin on the 3rd of October. Infact, the Queen Baton Relay is currently in Lahore, Pakistan. It’s set to reach India on 25th, June 2010(Tomorrow). Some months ago we are uncertain about the completion of the works for the game. But, now there are no issues regarding that and the works are on fast track. The Games committee are now satisfied. All the works are nearing completion.Majority of stadiums are inaugurated. The major setback is the uncompletion of Jawaharlal Nehru Stadium where the opening and closing ceremonies are held. But, Kalmadi has promised this will be the best Commonwealth Games ever! Let’s wait and see.

The total expense of the game is nearing Rs. 15000 crores. Our country has recently hosted a great deal of international events including Hockey World Cup, Boxing and Shooting. Games will be held in five stand alone stadia and six cluster venues. The Delhi Government has undertaken 24 infrastructures projects including games related roads, flyover, overpasses, parking places etc., but only 10 have been completed now. They are expected to be completed by July. All these projects will make our capital ‘a world class city’. I think that the participating countries should never complaint about the security setup. India is the safest country in the world!

Our country must have taken the prepartions for this games more seriously some years before. Now, we are rushing up in the last minute.

But, I am sure that Government of India and Olympic Committee of India can deliver an hi-tech, best ever Commonwealth Games ever! And this games will help in shifting the interest of Indian People from Money Oriented Cricket to real sporting events!
