The Battle between Lin Dan and Dato' Lee Chong Wei aka rambling

Those who know me know that I'm not a sport fan. In fact, I don't bother at all with sports. Then, what with the entry, you may ask?

I also dunno why. Maybe because I just watched the match between both of them in the All England Series and feel like comment about it. Yea, one of the reason IF I do watch sport is when there's a national player in an international level competition. Haha, patriotism here. Or if I'm betting on the games, which is extremely rare.

Anyhow, back to the game. I'm not gonna say anything bout how Dato' played the game or criticize his skill. Who am I to do so? More like what I noticed during the match.

1st, I watched the game through RTM. As with any sport events aired in RTM, there'll be commentary from them narrating the game. Sometimes, it can be very annoying hearing those people talking non-stop when you are trying to enjoy the match. And it's in Malay. Very fahn (noisy)...

Then, the jersey (is that what you called them or just shirts?) color for the players were very confusing. I mean, normally, Malaysian player wore yellow while the Chinese wore red. It's like that one ma. Or Malaysian wore black like in the final for the Beijing Olympic. This time pula, Lin Dan wore yellow while Dato' wore red. So confusing. When the yellow player scored a point, I would cheered only to realise it's Lin Dan. And it's no help that both of them are Chinese.

I also noticed one fella in the arena that I find funny. He was holding the Malaysian flag with a very-obvious Malaysian (aka Malay) and on his face, there's a China flag painted on it. I thought he was China Chinese who's helping the Malay girl holding the other side of the flag but he also cheered when Dato' scored. A spy? And another fella was telling his friend next to him to look up, persumely to look at his face on the screen. Everyone tries to savour their 15 min of fame.

Throughout the match, I noticed a stark difference between Lin Dan and Dato'. Lin Dan has a certain charm in him. Charisma. Whenever the camera was on him, he looked just calm and confident, a bit arrogant (?). And he is good looking too. While Dato' just lacked this ingredients. He covered up with skills, though still lose to Lin Dan. So sad.

Enough rambling nonsense. Hope Dato' gonna win next time when put against him.
