You Can’t Watch ICC World Twenty20 2016 On Sling Unless You Are A Loser!

by Anura Guruge


Sling’s coverage of the ICC World Twenty20, 2016, sucks.

They make NO ATTEMPT to reflect what matches are being shown. Total frigging crap shoot.

Sling’s management has total and utter contempt for Indians. I know. I have spoken with them. They are only interested in screwing us for every cent they can and making us jump through hoops. Sling might has well be a Donald Trump enterprise.

Yes, the matches are on Sling BUT you will spend hours trying to find the right match — and when it started.

Yes, if YOU are a LOSER and can sit in front of Sling all frigging day, your hands down your pants playing with yourself, you will do fine. Enjoy.

For others, like I, who do have a life and other things to do, Sling is but a bloody pathetic JOKE.

Click to ENLARGE.


At the “Verizon Wireless Arena”
Thursday, May 5th to Sunday, May 8th.

I got an e-mail from Verizon (since I am a good customer), on Friday, with this ultra-special Pi Day offer.

Everything 3.14; $3.14 for the Thursday 7pm show, 1st 314 punters buying tickets at the Verizon Box Office starting at 12pm on Monday, March 14, 2016 — Pi Day (of the century).

I deleted the e-mail because I assumed I would find the offer on their Website. WRONG.

You could/should call, (603) 644-5000, IF you are interested in pursuing this quite incredible offer. Thursday night’s don’t work for us. But we always get the CHEAP tickets anyway. SMILE.

6 images Of Rome (Italy), In Mid-March 2016, by Father Anthony Churchill.

by Anura Guruge

This books is 100% valid. Read it.

Cover photo by Fr. Churchill.

Father Anthony Churchill, STL, of Sussex, U.K. is one of my closest collaborators when it comes to my papal work. There are umpteen posts related to him on my ‘Popes and Papacy’ blog. Just do a search on ‘Anthony’. In addition to being a gifted (and very qualified) theologian, a beloved parish priest he is also an accomplished photographer. The front cover photo of my (once quite popular) “Next Pope 2011” was a picture taken by Father Churchill (who is not related to ‘Winston‘).

Father Churchill is currently on a well earned sabbatical and spending 5 months in Rome, a city that he has spent much time in — including time he spent studying for his ‘doctorate’ in theology. He has concelebrated Mass with Paul VI in Rome and Pope Benedict XVI in London.

I told him about my ‘6 Images a Day‘ project and asked him if he would supply me with some images from Rome. He had not taken his camera so these pictures are ones he takes with his iPad or iPhone. These pictures are also published on his Facebook page.
