'God of Cricket' retires, Indians from Mumbai to Bay Area take pause
Joyce Park stashed this in The Sporting Life
On the retirement of Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, hero to a billion Indians. Two most amazing factoids: his mother had never seen him play before (!), and many Indians try to remain perfectly still while watching their team bat!!! It's only weird if it doesn't work...
How could his mother have never seen him play?!
She probably didn't approve of his vocational choice, with a side of severe obstinacy.
