Eventful weekend! – Lots to write about

Posted: May 18, 2009 in Random Ramblings

It was quite an eventful weekend while I was out of town. The Congress has come back to power with a thumping mandate. The Iceman will come out with his wish list for the new government shortly. Also coming up will be the Iceman’s verdict on the hero’s and zero’s of the elections.

On the sports front, my beloved Manchester United sealed their 18th English football championship, the 11th under the stewardship of Sir Alex Ferguson with a nervy, hard-fought draw against Arsenal. With this win, United have drawn level with arch-rivals Liverpool as the most successful English top-flight club. Similarly, Barcelona and Inter Milan were handed the Spanish and Italian leagues in a platter when their closest rivals lost in the weekend. The Iceman will post his views on United’s latest triumph as well as on Rafa Benitez’s views that Liverpool was the better team this season.

The IPL also saw quite a few edge-of-the-seat thrillers this weekend while big Mathew Hayden continued his merry ways with the bat in the IPL’s 2nd edition. Elsewhere, the Windies led by a disinterested Chris Gayle are the course of being thrashed a 2nd test match in a row against England. The Iceman will profile Hayden’s resurrection with the bat in the IPL sometime this week.

Meanwhile, Roger Federer finally beat Nadal on clay at the Madrid Open in the run-up to the French Open. Will somebody finally solve the Nadal puzzle at Rolland Garros??

Lots to write for the Iceman this week!!!
