We are living in a world where terrorism exists and is making our lives miserable. We often believe that sports can help us escape the harsh realities of life, including terrorism, but this is no longer the case.
What happened yesterday has shocked us all (check out the Cricket sections of every newspaper and sports website to find out what happened. If I tell you what happened, I will probably offend many of you). Suddenly, cricket has become a new front line of the War on Terror. It's no longer a gentle, slow sport in which a player can escape the harsh realities of life and have fun. Cricketers have now become targets for terrorists. Which sport will become terrorists' next target? I don't have a clue. Only time will tell.
The War on Terror is meant to reduce terrorism, but it has not served its purpose. In fact, terrorism is spreading like a cancer. It has just spread to the sports section of our lives. Where will it spread to next? Sadly, no one can tell (except the people behind terrorism, the terrorists themselves).

If you ask some kid who has watched Inter Milan vs Man Utd this week who Julius Caesar is, he/she will tell you that he is the Inter Milan goalkeeper. For obvious reason, this is wrong, but how do kids get it wrong? It's simple. The Roman guy is spelt JULIUS CAESAR and the Inter Milan goalkeeper is spelt JULIO CESAR. In English, these names almost sound the same, so that's why kids get them mixed up. So next time when your kid-siblings get them mixed up, just tell them that these two guys' names are not spelt in the same way and they are not related.
My questions for you this time are:
- Have you ever got people's names mixed up?
- Do you think Man Utd will get through to the next round of the Champions League and why?
Thank you for viewing and smile!
