You go first buddy!
let me start about you that you were a nerd who still had braces on like katy perry in "last Friday night". .
haha no.! Katy Perry came in my life later, right before Russel Brand
10 yrs ago I barely started working at Circuit City. I used to do 2 jobs at that time, new in US figuring out how to make ends meet, it was some great time. It was my first Black Friday and I have to be there at store at 3:00am. Not much of a gamer I am, but one of those consoles XBox or PS2 were coming out. In respect, I was new in Houston too. It was my first experience seeing that much crowd crazy about shopping. I saw people camped out for Plasma TVs and Game consoles, wasn't a pretty sight but have to give it to them for their dedication. A night before I had best Turkey dinner, those spicy ones the way Turkey is prepared on Thanks Giving at Pakistani households. Awesome. I remember how much stocking and how much clean up we have to do that day afterwards @CC with all the shenanigans and pranks on customers in between. Loved Circuit City all those years, had great time.
I barely started college here. First semester. There was IND vs PAK series on later that year. I watched 4 ODIs at the theater across the street from circuit city where they put on the whole series. Amazing times, games started at 12 midnight and it was house full with families at all 6 screen, 3 to Indian fans 3 to Pakistanis. First time I learned how crazy Houston can be, cheers, food, bhangras, flags, mexican waves, all inside that theater. First game I felt like I was sitting at National Stadium, Karachi. Pin drop silence as Sehwag was trashing our pace bowlers right and left, and then we lost by 6 runs I think in last over after all that fight back by Inzy and Yousuf. Best Cricket experience of my life so far. We end up losing that series which was such a downer. Particularly because on last ODI after defeat I saw that 'Pakistaniyooon ke muun latak gaye thay'. That was ugly.
What about you Das Boot…..were you a keyboard warrior back then too?
