The Golden Retriever In The “King Midas” Commercial By Midas?

by Anura Guruge






Where did they get that Golden Retriever in the ‘King Midas‘ commercial?

He/she is cute enough, as ALL Goldens are, by definition, BUT … come on!

Is there a particular reason that he/she appears in the commercial as opposed to a more representative Golden?

OK. I admit it and those that know me, know this about me. I am a SNOB when it comes to Goldens.

Yes, I love Goldens, and that goes without caveats. But, I am also very ‘fussy’ about Goldens.

The Midas Golden is “OK” … but, but, but.

I am not going to any much, since I could get into trouble.

But, that Golden could do with a coat of Gold! Nough said …

And, just in case you are wondering, I am FINE with older Goldens. Ulysses, the 4th of the 6 Goldens I have had, lived to be 14.

WOW. WOW. WOW.

What a match. After another amazing innings by Virat ‘Midas’ Kohli and 192 on the board I thought that India had it sealed and that my prediction, even from this morning, of the ‘Battle of the Raj‘, India v. England, was going to the Final of the ICC World Twenty20, #ICCWT20.

When Gayle went for 5, after 6 balls, I was convinced the Windies were screwed. Then Marlon ‘Bloody’ Samuels, yet again, played like girl having her first period and wracked by cramps.

I have always LIKED Lendl Simmons BUT had forgotten about him. He hadn’t played in any of the previous matches. I thought we was on the field as a sub. And he dropped a catch. But Lendl CAN BAT — as he demonstrated.

And Johnson Charles and Andre Russell. They didn’t even need Bravo or Sammy. AMAZING.

I did say, on Monday, that for the West Indies to beat India, at home, somebody would have to score 70+ of 180+. Lendl Simmons came close; 82 at 161 S/R. Andre Russell batted at 215 S/R.

Now the BIG question … did the Windies play their ONE BIG innings of the tournament. Will they have any gas in the tank for the Final on April 3? 

It will be fascinating.

Thank YOU the West Indies. Sorry for the all the BAD things I have said about you in the last year. SMILE.
