Angamaly for Argentina!

The World Cup in Brazil is about two weeks away, and for the football-crazy fans of Kerala, that’s two weeks too long a wait. I’d recently visited Angamaly, a town close to the airport, for a wedding, and the banner above was just outside the wedding reception hall. Yes, Kerala football fans have their favorites, and loyalties run deep.

At the Angamaly KSRTC bus stand was more evidence of football fever. A jeweler cashing in on the mood of the moment with a blow-up of the Argentinean superstar of yesteryear, Maradona, I thought — until I read the name of the jeweler. Boby N Maradona?? Wonderful! A true football fan and adorer of Maradona must be the owner of this business. He’s wearing his adoration on his sleeve by naming his business after his favorite footballer. I wish Boby N Maradona a glittering future.

And, yes, may Argentina win the World Cup!
