Comparing myself with Manish Pandey

When I was 19, I was busy skipping classes at uni. Clearly, he's not.

The end.

The better team won today. Bangalore batted well, fielded well, and bowled well. They also managed to do each of these better than Chennai, so they deserved that win in every way. I find myself okay with that, and if it's not heresy to say so, throughout the match I didn't quite mind BRC's onslaught against CSK bowlers.

As the commentators have reminded us about a hundred times, the No. 7 and No. 8 teams from last year will be meeting in the final this year. Just because I like some of their players more, I'm going Bangalore. But it would be good to see Deccan win the tournament this time.

If you're interested, Ryan Campbell and Corey Wingard are all over Pandey's name. Apparently it's "Pandy" as in "Mandy".

What would we do without the insightful knowledge of our expert, Ryan Campbell?

Amy said...

I, for one, would commit suicide. But you know, that's just me. I can't live without him.

Esra_Star said...

Personally I think once a year is more than enough Campbell time. His stupidity does keep me entertained sometimes...

Amy said...

Only one more night of him and then we're done. Can't wait.

Anyway, I'm off to catch some sleep. You should too, you crazy insomniac.

Q said...

Its not Pandy like Mandy or Candy..

Its Pandey, like Paan Day..

My mate Nostradamus said that the IPL will only last 4-5 seasons.

It's Pandey as in first name Terry, Terry Pandey. (If you do not understand urdu or punjabi then do not attempt to try and undertsand that...please)

Amy, you are incomparable.

Amy said...

Q, yeah, that's basically what I was saying. Ryan Campbell's an idiot. He pronounces just about everything wrong if he can.

Stani, I know I am. I'd also like to be called Nostradamus.

Amy must be annoyed that Chennai is out and she can't perve at Albie anymore. He was crap again last night. He just hasn't made the runs the CSK would have expected.

Amy, I'm gonna say something that'll piss you off but I kinda find Ryan Campbell entertaining. He's from the tell it like it is school which I find quite refreshing. Wingard is a completely another matter - I can't stand his motor mouth and what' with those jaws of his?

Amy said...

Anon, I guess I don't really blame him. They bowled pretty well to him, and Chennai were fucked down the other end anyway. And since when am I a perv? :O I maintain that I like the way he plays, that's all. Heh.

Prabu, well, it doesn't piss me off at all. I just don't find anything he says refreshing at all. And Corey Wingard is some sort of creepy ventriloquist's dummy. His mouth is out of a horror movie.

Pandey should be the future star for India.

Mariam said...

hey i felt the same way when Bangalore won..i wasn't very disappointed.....and i didn't have my hopes up coz Chennai's fielding was sloppy n clearly with the way Bangalore were playing they deserved t win fair n square....

Lulu said...

"Just because I like some of their players more, I'm going Bangalore." - not doctor-bashin' Praveen Kumar I presume?

Amy said...

Sam, I think he definitely has the potential to go on to do great things for India.

Mariam, yep, the team that played better should have won. If CSK had scraped through without showing any of the real effort that BRC were showing, it would be more of a disappointment. I would still be happy of course, but BRC would have been cheated.

Lulu, never ;)

yea ....
