Cricket theory

courtesy Vatsan

We were having an argument on cricket and football. Me calling cricket boring and him vice versa on football. So when I asked what's so great about cricket, a game that takes at least a day to decide a winner? He tells me

A cricket game is the best place to meet a gal. You have the whole day to decide and ascertain if a gal is gonna be boring or fun and whether you should make a move. Plus there is a wide selection of choice. You have enough time to make the move, put kadlai (as in strike up a conversation and flirt) and all things are good given the games end sharp at 6pm you might be lucky enough to get a date!

In a footballs 90 min game, you won't even have time to look at a gal, you'll be too busy watching the game!

Side note : He informs me it will work anywhere expect at subcontinent games as less women attend these games.

I say I do have to agree on this point but please channel all brickbats to Vatsan - I am just the innocent messenger ;p hehe

Now, that explains the craze for cricket in India!

by the way, to answer the question "which is boring, Cricket or Football"...the fact that you have time to watch gals more than the game explains everything!

on the note of meeting a gal in a football match...

1) You can well meet the gal next to you....
2) you can even hug her if the team you and her support scores a goal...she wouldn't mind at all
3) You can have a sample 'dinner date' at half time....try buying her sandwich and have a chat...that's like a 15-minutes of a test drive!
4) After the football match, in any way you gonna end up in a pub...drinking away happily or drinking your sorrow away! in either case, you get to bring the gal to a pub!

visithra said...

Syam : it is ah well a good reason to go there then ;)

thanks ah? Humm seri seri ehnamo vatsan sohnadeh spread pahna vehnam?

I still think its boring though - n u think the same? Wow an indian at that? Wow

Gusti : hehehe we would think

heheh exactly!
Well ur points could be true if we're talking about a game at overseas venue - but over here ud probably have the gals bf, brother, father n uncle staring at u from the moment u ended up near their group ;p so dont even dream about being seated next to the gal ;p
