They Had Two, But Could Show Only One Ball

Running to empty houses all over England, nevertheless playing all over the country ūüôā¬†I guess we hear and feel and are made aware of the English pain¬†the most¬†of any nation that exits¬†the World Cup. One reason for that¬†could be the fact that a large section of the media that covers soccer comes from England. And its no guess which way their hearts will beat.

Speaking of movies, watched The Shawshank Redemption based on a recommendation of a past colleague. Wasn’t watching much films back then in 1994, so had missed it then and ever since. Powerful performances and super dialogues:

¬†I’m so excited, I can barely sit still or hold a thought in my head. I think it is the excitement only a free man can feel, a free man at the start of a long journey whose conclusion is uncertain. I hope I can make it across the border.

There’s another¬†line about a bird with beautiful feathers that comes to roost quite evocatively as well.¬†

And another: The A-Team.¬†I remember reading the books way back when¬†I was half the age what Wayne Rooney is today. the movie was¬†nothing special but I read somewhere that Fox Studios has hit big and nicely with this one’s release in India.
