A game that we all have been waiting for and dreading..
The World Cup Quarter Final..
Defending champions against the hosts (and supposedly the favorites)..
A game where the team we loathe is playing the team that can do no wrong..
A game which (We’d like) would be the last game for one of the most hated characters in this part of the world..
But a character that we know is probably one of the best we’d ever see..
A game between two teams who fight hard, as hard as it can get, on the field, but are pretty chummy when they get off it..
A game, that thousands of Indians would brave the March afternoon sun to watch..
A game that should all goes well, kids would say for years to come “I was there…”
If it doesn’t, a game that we won’t look back with regret..
Instead, just shrug our shoulders and say, “Well.. If you lose, you might as well lose to them!!!”
