View Full Version : A late account for a timely celebration

February 8, 2005, 12:32 AM
So, we had our first ever test win celebration party at my place in Addison (Dallas), Texas.

The interval between the event and its account is due to the manifold effects that sports may indulge on the fans with. Though the first ever test win triggered the inception, we had to go through an emotional roller-coaster later on through the rest of the test and ODI series, making us forgetful about the party.

Anyway, the party was no less eventful. Participants were: faceOff, Dotball, Maruf, Jahir (not a BC member, but a BC fan alright), ISmacker, nihi, and the spirit of all the BC fans. We had a jhaalmuri snack that went with getting acquainted with each other. That was followed by an extended period of taped tennis cricket under light.

It was a tennis-court-turned cricket field. Obviously the rules were custom-made. The guests were, naturally, overwhelmed by the rules and the home-side grabbed the complete advantage of that confusion.

The dinner menu was exported from homeland. Vuna khicuri, begun bhaja, gorur manghso, dim-er torkari, achar, salad (can't recall anymore, others may subscribe). Contribution from the guests made good for the lapses that the hosts might have befallen.

Last but no way the least was the video of the 2nd ODI against India that DotBall kindly brought with him and we got to watch that together. We had a wonderful evening, to sum it up. I hope cricket will keep playing the role of bringing people together evermore and patronize friendship all over the world.

We had some pictures of the participating enthusiasts taken. But since there is no option to add picture from file, I will ask someone to host the picture and add a link here.

Thanks

Bombshell!

Dotball! why have you not taken the initiative to get that tape for uplaoding to the BC server so that eanyone who missed the match could enjoy? nihi I hold you personally responsible for this. You must redeem yourself by immediately arranging for the tape to be digitized and uploaded. You and Dotball owe this to BC :) If you need technical advice please contact Nasif ASAP.

Thanks :)

Are you kidding me? I've searched everywhere for this, I told my friend in BD to contact BCB if they have to. Yet no luck so far and you guys have this video!!!

Its a crime against humanity I tell you. Upload this right now or I'm coming to get you.

I suggest strip off the BC membership of faceOff, Dotball, Maruf and nihi if they do not take any initiative of sharing the video. It is such a sick mentality, its like a sri lankan living in sri lanka and not willing to help the tsunami affected people.

February 8, 2005, 10:03 AM
Wow! Cool down guys! We just didn't realize the significance of tooth, since we had it! (Dnaat thaakte dnaat-er morjada na bojha jatio) Dotball got the video, and I guess he will be more than happy to do it.

February 8, 2005, 10:23 AM
Yeah, come on Nasif. Offer some tech support.

Guys: ISmacker is playing double character. On one hand he too watched the video and wants his share of goodies. On the other hand, he wants to take part in smacking. I guess, he could make a good friend of Amit.

Actually the video was a bait for publishing their photo online. Since you guys have succumbed to it already, you can forget about the video ;) . Well, I am kidding. Looking at the rate of tech-support corrsespondence between DotBall and BC, you guys may have to lick your lips for longer than you would like to.:saint:

Here are some clues:

1st from the left: He maintains the habbit of whacking around.
1st from the right: He is not supposed to show his face here.
1st from the middle: not a BC member, so no clue will work. Name is Maruf.
2nd from the right: Bowling economy is his motto.

So you guys figure out!

P.S: Left-right from viewer's point of view
