Yes, Michael Schumacher is back. As a racing driver of course. But for a short while to replace the seriously injured Felipe Massa (That was a scary and freaky accident. Thank god he is going to be better) for at the least the European Grand Prix.
Yes, this post is quite late considering it’s been over 24 hours since MS was confirmed to be back but then I did not want to celebrate before it was a certainty. Now I am extremely pleased (please read jumping with joy but I shall try to be mature and say pleased ;-) ) that we all get a chance to see Schumi back in a Formula 1 car. However it also makes me long. Long to perhaps see Schumi in one of the last few races he will be in a formula 1 car as a F1 driver. It’s like a sign that this is my chance to see him live. Oh I wish I could…
The new season of the fastest sport in the world starts today in Australia. The usual teams are there but the surprise package is a new team, Brawn GP which replaced Honda from last year.
A lot of rules have changed, some for the better (Slicks, improved aerodynamics) and others for the worse (fugly rear wing, higher nose cone etc). That said, as the first race just starting, it looks to be a very promising season..
Why is it that a single win can elevate the India cricket team to new heights?
A loss in the next match and the same media will slam the team into the ground and then some more. While I agree that the win by the Indian cricket team was truly magnificent and the whole team performed as a unit and very admirably, labeling a single as redemption and a comeback is carrying it too far.
This match alone, as linked above has been called the greatest test win by India. Other reports claim that the “invincibility” of the Australian team has been shattered (not that I believed there was such a concept).
India’s ascendancy to the 2nd place in the world test rankings will further increase their arrogance, one that will be shattered both by the next loss and the overwhelming criticism that will be directed towards them due to the loss.
All this hype takes place every time India prepares for a tournament, or happens to complete an increasingly rare victory. While it is not bad to celebrate a win, it should also be tempered with humility and cautioned with not becoming complacent.
And you know why I am happy!
I am so ecstatic. I’ve been standing for the last 10 laps, my fingers crossed for the last 5!
Is the sun?
Is the light?
Is the clarity?
The legend, the greatest driver in Formula 1 history finally retires.
After a fantastic win in Italy, Michael Schumacher announced his retirement from the sport where he has reached a position no other driver can reach. It is a sad day to see my favorite driver retire. He will be missed. :(
To make the news of Michael’s retirement slightly less painful, Kimi Raikkonen has signed up for Ferrari. Kimi who was my favorite driver after Michael will continue my support for Ferrari. I am glad he decided to join the Prancing horse team :)
Italy have won the world cup Yaay…. Although I wanted Germany to win and Portugal second
Actually France did not win it so a bigger yaaaaay :D
And Zidane, you suck >:P
This is a very inspiring story of a Tennis Player, James Blake. Over the past couple of years, Blake has suffered a lot of advesity, personal tumults and problems. But with a spirit which is very resilient and will power which is seemingly made of iron, he has come back and achieved what many tennis players only dream of. A Top 10 ATP rank and an increasing fan base and reputation. Truly an inspiring story.
