Grand Slam Sunday

Soccer is the new cricket.

Chelsea take on Arsenal on Sunday (that’s tomorrow… no wait, today!).

Nothing compared to Manchester United taking on Liverpool, the very same day. Two games, live, back-to-back. By all mean, Grand. Slam. Sunday.


I have been running after a ball for almost two years now. (you may seem to think that I am playing soccer). In Lahore, we have our own stadium with FIFA officially inhabiting our country since I-dont-know-when. You should see the packed crowds at some of the well-arranged privately-organized footy tourneys. There are a lot of soccer fans and players out and about in the city of Lahore and Soccer is coming out in a big way! Go Unitedddddd!!!

    Hey there r people writing bad things about Pakistan on bbc, They r either misguided Pakistanis or from other countries. Who ever becomes the prime minister we CANNOT and SHOULD NOT insult our nation. Please go here and write something good. Tell the world that we are a resilient nation and we will rise to the top of the world. And they should mind their own business, this is our internal matter and we can handle our own problems. Lets not insult ourselves like this.

    Whatever the outcomes of the is a battle of the Giants. I will be up watching it in the morning. Unfortunately we don’t get the games free and have to pay for it.

    Go Reds!! (Liverpool naturally)
