Re: Australia tour of India, October-November 2008

I was almost convinced that Sourav had employed god as his personal scriptwriter, the way he was batting in his final test. But he fell 15 runs short of convincing me .... I can understand where PKB is coming from; however, I believe that Ganguli's 85 runs in his last match was superb. Cricket and ...

Re: Vote for McCain or Obama

Congratulations to Obama and his team of workers - both paid and volunteers. Democrats have not been very disciplined in the past and in-fighting and bickering have been their downfall in the past, and Obama and his youth brigade came in and changed the political scene. For a diehard and card carryi...

Re: Australia tour of India, October-November 2008

Thanks for the wonderful years to cricket, Kumble. It is sad to see the end of a career of a great player, yet the news reports I have read state that the crowd was sparse in the Delhi Test. Kumble had not told the media before the match started that it would be his last Test match, but it was quite...

Re: World Chess Championship - Viswanathan Anand vs Vladimir Kra

A belated congratulations to Anand on retaining his world title. I had been on the move and was overwhelmed with work on my return.

BTW, people are already working on getting the US Capitol building ready for the inauguration of the next President.

Re: $10K Pakistan F1/ F2/ F3 - 13th Oct, 20th Oct, 27th Oct 2008

Rupesh's performance in Pakistan F3 Futures looks good only in comparison with his performance on the Tour in the past one year. I am happy for him that he has done well in this tournament, but for a player who will turn 20 years old in less than four months and for someone who got training under Bo...

Re: The Real Election Poll

Though I voted for Doc, I am bit afraid that he won't have time for us when he wins this election. Forget about not having time for all of you, if I get elected I will eliminate all income tax, provide free health care that Obama and McCain enjoy as being Senators, your children can travel free by ...

Re: Indian domestic cricket/ players

The Cuttack stadium was completely chockful today -- a distinct contrast to the empty stands during the Mohali test . This is an ominous augury for the future of test cricket, especially in India. Unlike some of our forum members who feel that Test cricket and 20-20 will survive in the future, I be...

Re: Sania Mirza - General Discussion of tennis matters

Hmm. I have no medical knowledge, but that sounds to me more like some kind of fatigue illness. Rocco Baldelli (baseball player for the Tampa Bay Rays) has a condition where he has occasionally been unable to do really simple things, but at other times is able to play pro baseball. I do not know wh...

Re: Sania Mirza - General Discussion of tennis matters

Bhushan, What on earth is spiral therapy? Needles in the body -- sounds a bit like acupuncture. The whole business sound odd, to say the least. Suresh I have no idea about spiral therapy and I did try to search for it on the Internet without much luck. It is difficult to argue against success and i...

Re: 2008 Nationwide Tour - Arjun Atwal targets 2009 PGA Card

Agree with your comments, Prem. :D Arjun won today, but not after giving some heartaches to his fans. Now Arjun will have to improve on his ranking within the group of golfers who will earn the PGA Tour card of 2009. Good showings in the next two events can raise his chances of getting into many PGA...

Re: 2008 Nationwide Tour - Arjun Atwal targets 2009 PGA Card

Chattanooga Classic presented by Black Creek Play-off: Arjun hits first and gets his ball in the fairway. Simpson's ball lands in the fairway also. Arjun makes a birdie. Simpson's second shot lands in green side bunker. Can Arjun win now? Simpson gets his ball on the green from the bunker and now m...

Re: 2008 Nationwide Tour - Arjun Atwal targets 2009 PGA Card

Arjun has made three birdies and one par on the par-5 18th hole in his four rounds while Simpson has two birdies and two pars. Here is the write up of the 527 yard long 18th hole: Home - If there haven't been enough memorable holes already, the "go for broke in two" par-5 18th will do the trick. A l...

Re: 2008 Nationwide Tour - Arjun Atwal targets 2009 PGA Card

Simpson's second shot lands on the green and so he will have a birdie or an eagle chance.

Update:

Arjun makes a birdie and he can win today if Simpson misses his birdie putt.

Update:

Simpson makes a birdie and the two are tied in regulation play. Off to the play-off.

Re: 2008 Nationwide Tour - Arjun Atwal targets 2009 PGA Card

Arjun's tee shot on the 18th hole landed in intermediate rough while Simpson's ball stayed in the fairway.

BTW, Golf Channel showed Daniel Chopra make a long birdie putt. He is the defending champion, but it is unlikely that he will win today. :-(
