      True. We are as crazy about this game as rest of the football playing world is about football.

        I know how much you guys love it – think you have beaten us now and then……from England.

        Ah, from England.
        I was in Cambridge in 1992, to attend a conference, during the World Cup. On the day of the final, we were listening to a paper in a large auditorium. The coordinator was running around with a small radio and listening to the commentary. Finally, he comes in the room, stops the proceedings for a while, looks at the audience, fixes his stare on me and says, ‘There is at least one person in this hall who should be very happy’. I can never forget that sweet moment.

        Thanks for liking the image.

      Thanks. I tried to reply promptly but due to bad net connection, every time I hit post, it timed out.
      I do very basic post processing. Bit of unsharp mask, curves and contrast boost. That is basically it.
