Abhinav has done it. He has not only done shooting, Chandigarh, Punjab and India proud but also craved a name for himself in the history books by becoming the first ever individual to win an Olympic gold for India.

Ole Ole! Spaniards Wins Euro Cup 2008

44 damn years....where were you Spaniards in all these years? I have never seen Spain playing so well. Fernando Torres has been one of the exception as i have seen him play great football representing Liverpool team in EPL. And he was the man who scored the one and only goal in the final of Euro Cup 2008. Of course there are other greats like Fabregas (Arsenal), Casillas (Real Madrid) and of course well known Carles Puyol (FC Barcelona). :) Honestly, i was backing up Germany in this game. But i am not disappointed because Spaniards played out of their skin, held their nerves, and it was a great football match. They are worthy and truly deserved this title. Well they already defeated Italy (World cup champions) and Russia. And they played great football last night! There were two occasions when i thought a freekick should have been awarded for handball but hey who gives a damn... maybe the…

India Shows Aussies How The Cricket Is Played

I guess it ain't a breaking news for you to know that India beat Australia in Common Wealth Bank series final and clinched the historic series win over the one day world champions. Australian players were just not good enough for Indian team at all. They only know how to speak all rubbish on and off the field. Indians just told them how the cricket is to be played and what world champions really are. Once could have been luck or fortune. But Indians won best of three finals by 2-0, third game of course not required. :) So they proved that this was not a fluke. Matthew Hayden and Andrew Symmonds definitely have lessons to learn. So does Ricky Ponting. For once they thought that they were Kings of cricket. How cruel, how wrong they were doing to themselves. Huh? Anyways, Indians clinched the series, proving that Australians, even if they are world champions does not mean that…

Fernando Alonso Quits McLaren

Two Time Formula 1 Champion Fernando Alonso is leaving McLaren. Now, why doesn't that surprise me? After a whole lot of controversial year for McLaren and Alonso, this was bound to happen. Alonso cuts short the three-year contract with McLaren after the very first year. Alonso finished third this season in overall standings behind Ferrari's driver and current world champion Kimi Raikkonen and his teammate Lewis Hamilton. Since I have just started blogging, I would like to mention that I am a big follower of Formula 1 racing. I had always favored McLaren as the constructors and loved the likes of Finnish driver Mika Hakkinen, Kimi Raikkonen, David Coulthard, Juan Pablo Montoya, and yeah to some extent Michael Schumacher as well. I guess, This year McLaren lost its place in my favorites book. But I am happy for Kimi Raikkonen. He is a real fighter. Anyways, I will end this post by wishing Alonso my best wishes in finding…
