Royal Thomain 2007 – The Big Match

March 8, 2007

Oh my god I’m so excited that I cant belive I’m sitting here and bloggin about it instead of being there in the midst of all the Papara Bands, Filthy Baila Songs, Loud Chants, and the Sweet Smell of Alcohol (and even maybe a few of Hot Chicks, but looking at them makes me feel old right now).

Unfortunately a quick reality check tells me I gotta be at work. Maybe I’ll sneak off after 3pm or so. Can’t wait for Saturday!

Why am I so excited? Well it’s been 3 years since I’m getting to enjoy the Roy/Tho in it’s purest form without any bother about stupid exams (which happen to fall right smack in the middle of the whole thing).

Oh added the fact that it’s gonna be my first big match since the conversion!… well dont you think thats enough reason?

So till I get over there… here are the scores at the end of the first day!

Royal College won the toss and decided to field.

S. Thomas’ College – 1st Innings 374 / 7 declared
(A. Peiris – 161, N. Mazahir – 162 / Thanthirigoda 14.1-0-47-2)

Royal College – 1st Innings 40 / 3 (234 needed to avoid follow on)

Live Scores Brought to you by –

(oops did I speak too soon.. oh hell.. THORA PARIPPU!)

    DiGa : Yes dude.. I’m alive. I know I havent been posting much, thats thanks to the heap of work thats piled over me, and it never seems to reduce. Anyways.. I’m trying to relaunch this baby with a newer theme and MORE of my RAMBLINGS.. so ppl WATCH OUT!!

    Anon : Dude the “Esto PerpetuARSE” T-Shirt says it all, but then again since “Lavinia” is synonymous with “Beach Boys”, that too says it, but in a rather subtle manner, maybe ur just too dumb to get it. šŸ™‚

    PS – All in good humour dude.

    Anyways, I’ll be wearing the “Drink First Sex Later” on Saturady (If the match goes on till then).

    With all this publicity TrishawMafia is getting, I’m thinking Suranga needs to give me a further discount. he he.

    Dilsiri : Macho looks like there might not be a match on for Sat, I’m speaking to my boss, and trying to go today mate.

    Dear Chaar-Max,

    “Thora parippu?”

    I must say do appreciate your optimism… really. I was actually surprised that the Royalist cricket team actually turned up on the last day… Not that it made much of a difference to the match anyway.

    Re your comment to Anon… a Freudian slip? Most probably. šŸ˜€

    With hopes for an actual match at the one day.

    PS All in good humour.
