Moment of Pride for Chennaites


This is certainly a moment of pride for Chennaites. CSK Rocks!!!

Lost 500 Bucks


When Chennai was in loosing spree at Indian Premier League 3 (IPL3) I was getting rich as I bet against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and won all the monies. It is not that I’m against CSK and infact I’m great fan of CSK and I want CSK to win. But being in Chennai no one wants to bet against Chennai.

Not to loose the fun part I bet on the opposite team. In either case I’m the winner because if Chennai wins my heart is loaded with happiness and if it looses my wallet is loaded with bucksJ.

Today I called my friend (R#%B@N) who introduced me to betting and made me a addict walked away fearing he might loose. That was because opposition was Mumbai Indians and they are leading the points table. Then I had to go for a bet with another friend and he eventually won. Though I lost 500 bucks I’m ready to loose more if CSK ends up winning.

My best wishes for CSK to win title this time.

IPL 2009 Schedule


This is IPL’09 schedule I downloaded and now I must see if I can write a script which sends me an email & SMS alerts for Chennai Super Kings matches… Email alert can be easily done in minutes but I must check if there are any providers who provide API to send free SMS :P, I know I’m little ambitious but internet has made people crazy and expect anything for free :). Do pass me sites which allow sending free SMS…

IPL 2009 To-do


IPL starts from 18th and more importantly it starts with Chennai Super Kings & Mumbai Indians… Last year I didn’t show much interest in the beginning but over days the tournament pulled me and also had opportunities to watch matches because of my friend Prasad’s influence with India Cements… This time I miss the tournament in India coz I can’t watch matches from the Stadium… Anyways let me do put a to-do list and make my schedule such that it doesn’t affect my work and watching matches…

 

  • Download Matches Schedule and Place it in Desktop & stick a printout of schedule in my table…
  • Subscribe for Sony Max in Sun Direct DTH… This is first priority and this must be done tomorrow itself…
  • Buy Chennai Super Kings T-shirt from Reebok…
  • Block Rs.10,000/- for betting with friends particularly with my twitter mate Sameer…
  • Change my caller tunes to Chennai Super Kings song…
  • If possible perform a special puja for Chennai Super Kings to win the cup this time…
  • Form a group in Madurai to watch matches… In Chennai there is no need as there are lots of group which I must choose and join…

Also last time we went with my MBA group for matches… This time there is a get-together on April 27, 2009 before the graduation day… So, I might not miss my MBA group this time…
