Photobucket had recently changed their policy and now all the images from my 650+ blog posts are disabled. I am slowly editing them by moving my images to my own server at AWS, but it will take time. In case there is a particular old post you want to see the images of, kindly drop me a mail at mizohican@gmail.com and I'll keep that at a high priority. Thank you.

Chp 312. Santosh Trophy: Mizoram QuarterFinals

Lolz. My ninth post this month! Damn. I always try to keep my monthly posting below 4 so as to make it more qualitative rather than quantitative. I guess there’s too much trivial stuff to blog about this football month.

So today was a great day for us Mizos. We beat Kerala, a five-time Santosh Trophy champion, 1-0 in the pre-quarterfinals! Wooohooooo! Beikhokhei scored the winning goal. Woot!

And I just discovered that my close friend and school classmate Stephen is in Kolkata with the Mizoram football squad! He’ll be there to live-update me with all the matches right from the pitch itself. I am loving this!

This is the first time Mizoram has entered the Quarter Finals of India’s most prestigious football tournament - Santosh Trophy. And right now, Mizoram is the only North Eastern team in the QF. The burden just got heavier. Will we see a North East team winning this coveted title for the first time this year?

Some time ago we joked that Mizoram would be like Spain – losing the first match and then moving ahead to win the World Cup title, something that no team had ever done before in World Cup history. And suddenly, Mizoram looks to be on the verge of repeating this!

About the Santosh Trophy fixtures etc, I have made a small presentation on slideshare. Do take a look. I hope this presentation says everything I wanna say in this blog post.
