It’s not always OBVIOUS

Hi all,

OBVIOUS – What does it mean???
Obviously it means obvious… 😀
Jokes apart, Obvious to me is :- Easily perceived or understood; quite apparent.

Getting back to the topic…. “It’s not always OBVIOUS
I realised the real value of this line yesterday. Not that i never thought about it, but yesterday the above line got stuck in my head and i decided to wirte about it…..

The main reason for this to happen was the two matches i saw yesterday.
1. Australia v/s West Indies (Cricket)
2. Chelsea v/s Barcelona (Soccer)

In both the matches, the teams who were OBVIOUS to win, didn’t win.

In the Fist match…
Australia were the clear favourites. But West Indies defying the odds, slipped away with the WIN. As obivous assuies gave them a good run for their money but Windies fought back and snatched away victory from the aussies. Windies showed a good all-round performance. The match also saw the First Hatrick in a One Day International (ODI) by a West Indian Bowler…
After a loooooooooong time i was glued to T.V. watching a cricket match and i really enjoyed the Aussie ass being kicked by the Under Dogs…

In the Second match…
Chelsea were up against Barcelona, being a die-hard Chelsea Fan. I from the bottom of my heart wanted Chelsea to win. But Barcelona were OBVIOUS to win the match, coz they were in good form and Chelsea were not on the top of their game.Chelsea were banking on their 3rd Goal Keeper to fill in for their Mainline Goalies… Both the goalies had suffered some serious injuries while playing against Reading.
The match started with a bang as Messi was testing the Chelsea defence line. Soon Chelsea got back into the game, with some good shots on the opponent’s goal. The first half ended goalless, with both the teams having fair amount of chances. The first goal came in the 2nd half. It was Drojba from Chelsea who scored the goal. In the closing stages of the match, Chelsea were put under huge pressure by the Barca forwards…
But the stand-in keeper did a very good job in denying the visitors. Chelsea went on to win the match 1-0. 🙂

Am not saying that Aussie & Barca didn’t deserve to lose, my point is “It’s not always OBVIOUS” 😀

    Saw the Chelsea-Barca match. Enjoyed it, more so the result 🙂
    The inclusion of Svechenko has really fired up Drogba and he seems to be performing better day in and day out.

    btw, I had heard that Bolton was supposed to give us their second goalkeeper and there are rumours that Cech might be out for a year or so. If it is true, then our EPL chances will be surely hit.

    And, the West Indies – Aus match was missed by me. But, sure loved to see the snippets of the match. Gayle was at its animated best throughout the match.

    I fear the rumors are true…
    I read it in The TOI yesterday, “Cech is out for atleast six months for sure… that’s minimum”
    Our Second Goal Keeper has been declared fit, for the upcoming EPL matches… 🙂

    But i feel sad for Shevchenko, he is going thru a bad patch… 😦
    I hope he gets back his form soooooooooooooooon…

    Abt Gayle, i hav never in my life seen him so animated…
    You could make out from his expression, that he was very exicted…
    I guess someone frm the Australian Team might hav said something to him…
    The aussies are famous for Sledging…

    Cuddicini is pretty good too and I think we can survive EPL with Cuddicini at the helm 🙂

    Now, what I am basically fearing is a lack of involvement of Svechenko and Ballack. No two questions about their ability or their desire to excel. Just that they have not been able to make their mark at Chelsea still. Once they start firing, then Man U will have some serious catching to do, Rooney or no Rooney.

    And yes, the Aussies are past masters at sledging. Surely someone’s words might have struck some chord in Gayle and he was behaving that animatedly. But, it was kinda ok to see. A good duel without getting dirty is pretty much ok 🙂

    Hail Chelsea!
