A Good Sport

The Olympics are apparently in full swing now.  Sitting here in India, you’d never know it.  Not exactly a country suited for winter sports, India has just four athletes in Italy. And the other day the Super Bowl made no news here — not even the questionable refereeing.

 Here it is cricket or nuthin’.  Thankfully the Indian team has finally handed Pakistan a few losses so the country seems to be in better spirits.  Why the Indians are not the world’s most super-dominant cricket power escapes me.  It sort of seems like soccer in Brazil; you have a country with a billion people, half of whom seem to be playing cricket at any given time and often in the most unlikely places.  That’s a huge talent pool to draw from.
