A little bash-fulnessSunday, 11th Dec, The front pages of The Times of India. The top banner reads: "On December 11, 2004, Sachin Tendulkar equalled Sunil Gavaskar’s world record of 34 Test hundreds.A year later, on December 10, 2005, at 4:44 pm at the Ferozeshah Kotla in Delhi, he — literally (my emphasis) and metaphorically — elbowed out the original Little Master to create history".
I know someone had a post recently pointing out these literal errors, but can't find it. Hopefully, Gavaskar (who was reported to have been holidaying in Nepal when Sachin overtook (not literally of course) him - so it was one heck of a long-distance elbowing) did not catch any of those infectious diseases that the younger Mumbaikar has been carrying in that part of the body. What else do you say?
NDTV's news ticker had this under "Sports" yesterday: "Ronaldo wants to win a Nobel Prize". Sports news? Forget that. News?
