Usain Bolt adopts cheetah

I liked this story as soon as I saw the title. Isn't there a poetic justice to it?

It can't get bigger than this. The French president has apologized to the Irish PM for the "Cheat" goal of Thierry Henry.

The Time writes on the top 10 cheating moments in sporting history. I remember three of them very clearly - the "Ben Johnson" episode at the Seoul Olympics, " Hansie Cronje" match fixing saga and " Hand of God" goal of Maradona. Ironically, the first two are still villified today whereas Maradona continues to remain an hero of the '86 world cup. Truth - in the eye of the beholder?

Choti Si Aasha

Fulfilled a "Choti Si Aasha" last week - attending a Jazz concert ( at New York City). Would have loved to attend a Broadway musical, may be next time.
