It's all about sports

I love sports. In fact I am a sportswoman. I enjoy it so much that hubby and me subscribed to the sports channel instead of cartoon network. Sorry kids! After a few months in Australia, my general assumption is, Aussies are sports fanatics. Look at how they support their cricket team! They even got a commercial for this. And don’t get me started on the spinner Shane Warne. Since he announced his retirement last year, I’ve been seeing him in the telly and magazines everyday….How he’s a good dad, his divorce, his hair etc. The most surprising thing is, now, I can enjoy the game when hubby taught me how to read the score. Isn’t that amazing? From a cricket hater, I’m now officially supporting England and New Zealand team for a change! Muahaha…..

Then there was Australian Grand Slam. Boy how I enjoyed the live telecast everyday. Who who’ve thought Serena ended up in the finals alas beating Sharapova by 2 straight sets. Aussie as usual was so anxious about their player, Alicia Molik. They even got to the extend of appreciating her muscled body as per Angelina Jolie in the Tomb Raider. That’s it!

Roger Federer is truly a magician. I enjoy how he thrashed Andy Roddick. How about that Jimmy Connors! Poor Hewitt being an Aussie was the favourite but then again, even his coach left him! Baghdatis on the other hand was totally humiliated by that French boy…what was his name again? But most of all I love watching Nadal plays. Hey, I’m not the only one appreciating him…I mean…especially his butt-ocks! But my friends as well! The angle that I liked most was when he’s receiving the serve. Yeap! Bend down baby, bend down….. Ops….!!!

Who's the fanatic again?

Malaysian : gila menonton bola tengah malam di tv atau di kedai mamak dan gila hiburan (especially the malays)

ju: Didn't managed to visit Canberra when I was in Sydney for 3 months. I'm avoiding Sydney the next time I gi Oz-land. During my 3 months stay kat sana, I was so lost tak dapat tengok my F1. We had basic channels. Manjang tengok Rugby..*sigh* :P

p.s
Thanks for dropping by my blog yg dah tak berapa active. ;)

June, Shane Warne? Huhu...sabar je aku. Dia ada text messaging you tak? Huhu... Erm.. I like tennis. You are right, Federer is a magician. Memang tahu dia akan menang but still, we want to watch him play. And cricket tu so-so. Everytime any team plays against Australia, I sokong that team.. ha ha ha..bukan apa, for me la, Aussies too arrogant sebab selalu menang. Macam the last Ashes. 5 zip kata Matthew Hayden yang suka cakap besar dan juga MacGrath yang suka sangat cakap sorang-sorang esp bila dia kena keluar padang... huhu...
