23rd Pullikesi … A True Winner

with one comment

I watched 23rd Pullikesi last night and it was quite a plesant surprise. A clean political satire with Vadivelu donning the the title role and playing it to perfection. The jabs at foreign investments, advertising, Coke & Pepsi were pretty well done. I think if you find time, you should watch it

When I was in high school, a “hot” [ I found her hot then, I am told she looks like Anna Nicole Smith before the liposuction now] English teacher taught me – gerunds amd the example of usage was

Flying planes can be dangerous.

The sentence conveys two meaning that Airplanes that are flying can be dangerous (or)It can be dangerous to fly airplanes. Both the cases came true for Corey Lidle. It is really unfortunate and sad that his ending came too soon. My heart goes out for his wife and six year old son.

million dollar bluffs

leave a comment »

is he A-Rod? The NY Yankee fans are calling him Frod . He has gobbled up 25.6 million this year but he had forgotten to lick his butter fingers. He had the maximum errors committed by a third baseman in the American League and was third in the major leagues behind D’back Tracy and Red Encarnacion. He batted 30 pts less than last year, swatted away 13 home run lesser and had a single post-season hit. I think the Boss will trade him for the benefit of the Yankees and Alex himself. I am not blaming all Yankee woes on him but when you are paid the highest, you are expected to take the maximum heat.

I think the bigger or probably the biggest bluff in NY is Randy Johnson. The guy is a first ballot hall of famer and he was almost done when he realized that the Boss wanted to flirt with him. So, he pestered the Diamondbacks to trade him and he has been a big bluff for the last couple of years. He has made 35 million in two years when he would have just sat at home and played with his grand kids. I think the Boss should not pick up his option and send Randy home to his grand kids so that he can sit on his couch and watch Sponge Bob Sqaure pants with them.

Middle of the seventh inning in a baseball game is when you will see the whole stadium , irrecpective of which team you are supporting , stand up and sing the national anthemn of baseball – “Take me out to the ball game” . Even Seventy year old become seven year olds and sing to their heart’s content. But I should say even the seventy year’s olds will be more decipherable than our man Ozzie when he sang “Take me out” in a Cubs ballgame a few years back. if I remember correctly, Ozzie’s singing made the Top-10 list for that day in Sportscenter and the next day Russel Crowe came to Wirgley filed and sang “Take Me Out” and that made the top plays as well

If you did not understand what Ozzie sang

“Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,
I don’t care if I never get back,
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don’t win it’s a shame.
For it’s one, two, three strikes, you’re out,
At the old ball game.”

Google went shopping with a big heart and an even bigger wallet and came back home with a $1.65 billion purchase of an application that it already has. I smell a Steinbrenner in this deal

When December third week rolls around, the bowl season starts and there would be a bowl game sponsored by almost every company from the under-garment makers to the airline makers. But I would like to see a bowl to identify the worst team in college football and it would be great if it could be named “toilet bowl”. Mediocrity needs to be identified, rewarded and publicized in order to avoid mediocrity. It like the the Razzies being the evil twin of the Oscars. College teams should recruit actively, pur money into their athletic programs so that they don’t end up contending for the toilet bowl. If you think this idea is totally bush league, I got it while I was using the portable toilet in the A’s stadium after a horrendous loss by Oakland in the American League Championship Series.

Chris Rock exactly knows where Mr.President stands on issues… Here is an exercpt from one of Chris Rock’s talk shows

  • ‘Mr President what about the war, when’s it gonna end?’
  • ‘Well, you never know, we’re talking to people, and we’re looking for stuff, and we might find it, we might not, and it’s out there, we’re gonna get it, you never know, how’s it going, yeah!’
  • ‘Mr President what about the economy, when’s it gonna pick up?’
  • ‘Well, you never know, we’re talking to people, and economic indicators indicate that indications are coming to the indicator, you know what I’m saying, all right!’
  • ‘Mr President, what about gay marriage?’
  • ‘Fuck them faggots!'”
