been showering 5 times a day!!!
and here are more quick updates!!!
last nights' Euro Quals game between England and Croatia was.... footballing entertainment at its best!!!! like wooooooo!! what a match!!! the drama!!! the anxiety!!! and of course England playing with their backs against a burning wall..... I started out backing the Croats, and they scored with amazing ease!!!! 2-0 by halftime!!! but the sheer desire and constant probing, attacking football of the english team was admirable!! so much so that.. i somehow clenched my fist when they scored their first and second goals!! almost sympathetic to their cause.... however, they lost 3-2 at the end.. and... soo.. THANKYU COMEAGAIN!!!
- Englands defence without Terry and Ferdinand is absolute rubbish!!! the croatian attack waltzed in and out of the english box waaay tooo easy!!! Alienhead and Slow Campbell just isnt up to it (although i think Alienhead is a pretty good player in general)
- Steven Gerrard played magnificently for about 80% of the game. He was everywhere!! getting back to tackle, stringing passes. Awesome stuff. It shows how much he's willing to battle for his country.
- Frank Lampard's penalty was something worth of note. It was Englands chance to pull a goal back when the penalty was awarded and.. i was already praying it wouldnt be Lamps. Im a Chelsea fan, and the pressure to score from the spot was immense.. just immense!! especially with all the criticism surrounding Lamp's England squad spot... A miss would kill lampard.... but no.. he walked up to take the penalty, and took it with a big brave heart... kudos to Lamps. (i was praying Beckham would take it! muahhahah)
- David Beckham was majestic. Old as he is, and back from injury, he still played pretty well, showing his intelligence. His cross that led to the 2nd goal was top class.
- Joe Cole was probably Englands most industrious player on the offensive end.
- Niko Kranjcar played well for Croatia, and somehow when the ball comes to him, it always seems like a dangerous play.
- Urgh i dont really know the names (or at least to spell them out) of the rest of the Croatian squad but they played really well! they dug deep and defended well, then hit England with counterattacks that sliced up the English defence like hot knife tru butter.
urgh.. when did the HIGHWAY SPEEED LIMITS get capped at 80KPH??
WTF??? thats dammmm slowwwwwwwww.... and Ken Han reports that road blocks and speed traps are occuring more then ever!!! that sux!!1 big time!!!
Does that mean i wont be able to hit gear5 on highways???
like.. cruising at gear4 lalalalala. How pathetic...
I consider myself to be a rather easygoing guy...... i think im rather calm and cool, almost rarely agitated and never really too easily angered but.... i now realise.... the one thing that ticks me off ... actually.. wont blog about this laaah.. hahaha
Meh i just had another evening basketball + night futsal action. Wah penat la. But actually i think my bod's coping with it and im feeling great!
OOWWWWH!!! ive been wanting to mention this for some time now!! i just kept procrastinating but... i.. ith blocked from betahebat.blogspot.com!!! OII YKKKKKKKK ... invite laaa

WOOHOOO!!! it has begun!!!
The 2007-2008 NBA season!! and.. it has never gotten me more excited before!!
Why?? here are a few reasons why:
FIRSTLY!! Boston Celtics made the biggest pre-season trade ever!! bigger even (at least in my eyes) then Shaquille O'Neals' move to Miami. Boston were the biggest loosers last season, having lost more games then any other team that year. The main reason? Paul Pierce, their heart and soul, was sidelined by injuries for long periods of time, leaving a very young and inexperienced Celtics cold and lost. Pierce has been keeping the Celtics from falling apart for a very very long time now, shouldering the burden of winning (or loosing) night in night out. He is, no doubt, is one of the better Guard/Forwards in the league today, just behind the big shadows of Kobe, T-Mac and LeBron. Even so, Pierce cant possibly do it by himself.... tried, failed tried again, and his will wavering.
How now??? Danny Ainge used his little green jedi mind tricks to pull a few strings and traded their bright young players for Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen!! now, the Celtics boast a trio of all-star players! superstars in their own right! and IMHO the most talented trio any team has ever put together in a very... very.. long time....
The Big Green Trio
Ray Allen came from Seattle, where he was the focal point of his team's offence, and like Pierce, shouldering the burden of his team's fortunes night in night out. Ray has, no doubt, one of the best shooting strokes the NBA has ever seen. To imagine Ray teamed alongside a guy like Pierce is breathtaking indeed! A slick, smooth sharpshooter that allen is... and the strong and fast, all rounded game that Pierce brings. Ray's presence outside the 3zone will allow Pierce more freedom to drive into the lanes.
And thats not all!!
KG and his number!
Kevin Garnett is in town!!! saving the best for last, KG is arguably one of the best players in the game today. His basketball repertoire is whole and complete!! KG is a monster in every facet of the game, and he tends to make every1 around him better! The last time he had teamates of considerable 'talent' in Sam Cassell and Latrell Sprewell, they reached the conference finals! Sam Cassell was a crybaby, and Sprewell is equally as bad, but with their 'talents', it was enough to support big KG almost all the way. Sam and Spree are, sadly, NOWHERE CLOSE to the talents and abilities of Pierce and Ray.
Now, how does one stop these 3? Pierce can be quite the force with his penetrations into the lane and his shooting has to be respected as well. Garnett will kill anyone but the best defenders in the league. His moves, speed and scoring touch is excellent. Also is his unselfishness as a team player and his ability to pass the ball, especially when double-teamed. Ray himself commands the respect of any defence becase of his shooting ability. Being in seattle, defences constantly close him down tightly. With Pierce and Garnett around, the defence can no longer shut out just one player, because anyone of them would blow any team apart.
And these 3, never won a Championship, and.. yes, they're very very hungry....
well, not as exciting as the Boston Celtics is the Milwaukee Bucks.
Nothing big in perticular, just the intrigue of watching rookie Yi JianLian in the NBA. YES! another 7 foot tall chinese player!!! Another Yao Ming>???
well not exactly... Yao is 7 foot 6 inches tall, big big center. Slow, BIG, strong and plays effectively when near (and facing away from) the basket. Yi however, is rather different! 6 inches shorter, still very very tall, but this young kid is extremely athletic. He's far faster then Yao, plays better facing the basket and shoots from long range. In fact, his most notable trait (aside from being 7foot tall, chinese, and much faster then yao ming) is his sweet shooting form, which is, quoting Charlie Rosen, almost flawless. He is however, a tad too skinny, but with a few years building up, he'll be a very very good player indeed. Because really now, how does one stop a 7foot shooter whoz probably quicker then any equally tall defender u put against him.
yea, of course! this is the year Shaq passes down the heavyweight belt to Yao, because, this is the year Yao surpasses Shaq as NBA's BEST CENTER. In fact, Yao already has.... waaaayyy surpassed Shaq's current level of performance. Yao was making his stand for it last year, but with Shaq winning a Championship the year before that, Shaq somehow keeps his #1 spot, for mostly honorary reasons. This year, this year is a no-contest. Yao wins. And because of this, and the resurgence of Tracy Mcgrady, and the fact that Houston Rockets made a couple of nice additions to their squad, would make the Rockets a pretty solid team.
Last but not least, Seattle Supersonics! letting Ray Allen go hurts them offensively, but their willingness to part with the future hall of fame player was in no small part, credited to the drafting of Kevin Durant. Skinny lil kid out of college, Durant is extremely gifted with the basketball, and his scoring and shooting touch is by far the best the NBA has seen from any rookie for the past few years! Look for him to score a bunch this year.
