South Paw on top

The South Paw with the MP tag thinks he is Dorian Gray. With two scores and a one candles lit on his birthday he thinks he still can play the game. Yet, the funniest thing is that chairman and ex-chairman are queuing up to propose his name to the selectos. One day it was the chairman who suggested to the selector to include the south paw only as a trundler. Now we hear even the Hospital man who is waiting to jump on the chair once the big one is over also have had a chat with the bearded selector asking him to include the south paw.
Oh! What these lesser mortals would do to get a piece of power!!!!!

Sue the newspapers
With the big sporting ‘do’ almost at our doorsteps, the officials concerned had gone to meet the Big Man at his castle that is before the Big Boss decided to see for himself the work that is being done regarding the big outing. The officials had told the Big Man not to believe the things that are being published in newspapers. The Big Chap who had given a piece of his mind to the officials concerned earlier had told them: ‘In that case why don’t you sue the newspapers?’

The costly web-site
Fourteen million smackers is a staggering amount. This is the sum that is being said to be used for a web-site that is operated by a certain big shot in the said sporting circle. Also this web site is said to be operated from the certain big shot’s house in Ratmalana.

Black coated gentry to the rescue
The most popular sport in the country is under fire these days. There is a court case that is pending and the amount that is spent for the case is in the region of 17 million! When the case was called up at the court concerned and the judge wanted to know who the lawyer was, a whole lot of black coated gentry rose up. It is said that no less than 25 lawyers have been employed for this particular case.

The boss who works from home
A driver employed by a certain sporting group and paid a handsome salary, is said to be working from home and rarely seen at his work place. Is this driver paid by the said sporting circle or is he the boss who works from home. A good guess is needed!

What are their duties?
A certain sporting body has a large work force of 325 and some of them do not know what their duties are. Since a special work place has been set up for a certain big event, 25 people have been allocated for this special office alone. We wonder who is pocketing out the monies for this.

The man with the mike
A certain individual who is very much in the news these days was holding the mike and saying that if there is anything that the press wants, they should contact him and him alone. The hard fact is that many top journalists skipped the event and knowing that only some of the junior scribes were present, the man with the mike had gone to town with his comments.
