the thin line between 'misssing it' and 'doing it'

the thinner the line, the deeper the disappointment!

yes, this is about Argentina missing it and Germany doing it.
it was a close one as both the teams were in very good form and it was a well fought game.

the line was thin for sure but it came into existence because of few significant issues -

taking off both Riquelme and Crespo - that was something unusual to do after a 1-0 lead. Argentina would have definitely won if Riquelme had continued on the field, the coach's decision was not good at all

Abbondanzieri's retirement -it was unfortunate is all I can say :(

the referee favouring Germany - yes, there were a lot of incidents where he favoured Germany but I can mention at least two glaring ones, Sorin's yellow card and Rodriguez' yellow card. they both were booked for no fault of theirs!

hence the thin line and it hit us hard when there was no Riquleme or Crespo to shoot the ball and all we had was a substitute goalkeeper to save during the penalty shootout!

Argentina had to miss and they did...
...though they very well deserved to win!
It was hard to accept it as they played a better football than the Germans yesterday :(

last WC, I was backing Germany after Argentina was knocked out in the first round. but after watching yday's match, I don't think I want to support Germany.

Chilli said that this wasn't his good year when it came to sports and him and it looks like the same is true with me too...Kimi hasn’t made it to the top step of the podium yet :(

okay am writing this as jaggi has tagged me...i should be writing five weird things about me...but seriously, i don't quallify to do this at all as i can't write such things humorously, i don't know why you tagged me :(

while riding if i have to stop, turn or slow down, i keep my right foot on the ground if it is necessary to keep a foot on the ground to balance. my brother keeps telling tht one should use his/her left foot but i just can't do that!

most of my dreams are feature wild animals like tiger, llion (and no i wouldn't be photographing them like wildlife photographers but i would be running away from them and they would be chasing me)!

giving gifts to my near and dear ones makes me more happy than receiving gifts from them!

i don't/can't enjoy food!

and finally, something that is not really weird...
i liked the movie 'the da vinci code' very much and i watched it twice as i thought i couldn't concentrate on all the details in most of scenes when i watched it the first time! and i don't have any compliant on tom hanks/robert langdon's blandness in that movie beacause that was how i had imagined that character when i read the book and also beacuse it wasn't an actor-centric movie but a plot-centric one!
