What matters...

... is the ability to stand up and be counted when it matters the most! And there are a lot of people in this world who are not able to do that many times! And I love a lot of them irrespective of the fact that they have the aforementioned flaw...

Indian cricket team and Argentine football team - two sides of the same coin. Both has plenty of talent, plenty of promise and at times takes you to cloud 9 just to throw you back on the lap of mother earth(?), too poetic??? Err, just trying a little too hard at writing well, I guess!

So, what we were talking about is these two enigmatic teams in the world of sports...

Argentina just got thrashed at the hands of bitter rivals Brazil, who seems to scrap through everything to win the ultimate prizes. Whole world who followed this Copa America were dead certain that Juan Roman Riquelme has fulfilled the task for which he came out of retirement to don the blue and white stripes again. But what mattered was that the Argentine team did not believe so or may be a more willed team broke their dreams...

Whatever may be the reason, it is high time they believe in themselves as I can't find a more talented team anywhere else in the world. I hope we are able to see those hay days of Argenine football once again back and shining...

Bring it on, Argentina...!
