  13. 13. A certain sporting Club was forced to close in 1878 after five years of life, due to a number of factors: The lack of new blood into the club The rise in popularity of polo in the area The departure from the city of a British army regimentAs a consequence, the club withdrew their remaining funds from the bank and had a silver trophy produced from 270 melted- down silver rupee coins. The value of these coins was £60.The trophy is an exquisite piece of craftsmanship, approximately 18 inches (45 cm) high, the body is finely engraved with three king cobras forming the handles.

  15. 15. The rivalry between the cities of A and B dates back to industrial times. B, being the closest port from A – a major manufacturing hub – levied heavy trading taxes much to the consternation of traders from A. Ultimately, an audacious project was undertaken to build a canal so as to by-pass B and transport goods directly to and fro A. The completion of this in 1894 resulted in job losses at B’s port.This event is commemorated by the presence of ‘X’ notonly in the City A’s Council’s crest but also in that of two of its biggest sporting organizations.

  20. 20. Lord John Douglas (picture) was a Scottish nobleman known for, inter alia, his outspoken atheism. In March 1895, he was arrested and sued for criminal libel by Oscar Wilde, whom he had publicly accused of "posing [as a] somdomite" (sic). Libel charges could be brought as homosexuality was a crime. He made the allegation because he was angered by Wildes apparent ongoing homosexual relationship with his son, Lord Alfred Douglas.His lawyers portrayed Wilde as a vicious older man who seduced innocent young boys into a life of degenerate homosexuality. Wilde dropped the libel case when Douglas’ lawyers informed the court that they intended to call several male prostitutes aswitnesses to testify that they had had sex with Wilde. According to the Libel Act 1843,proving the truth of the accusation and a public interest in its exposure was a defence against a libel charge, and Wildes lawyers concluded that the prostitutes testimony was likely to do that. Douglas won a counterclaim against Wilde for the considerable expenses he had incurred on lawyers and private detectives in organising his defence. Wilde was left bankrupt; his assets were seized and sold at auction to pay the claim. Douglas then sent the evidence collected by his detectives to Scotland Yard, which resulted in charges of sodomy and "gross indecency" against Wilde, who was convicted of gross indecency under the Criminal Law Amendment Act 1885 and sentenced to twoyears hard labour. His reputation destroyed, Wilde went into exile in France and died at the Hotel dAlsace in Paris.

B, also known as ‘The King’, scored 30 goals in 55 matches that he played for Scotland and remains their top goalscorer alongside C, who did so in 102 matches. An extra ‘n’ was added to B’s name by hisparents as otherwise it would have sounded too similar to a girl’s name in his country.
  33. 33. When X retired in 2005, he held the topspot in a certain all-time list but since has been overtaken by Y.In the 1994 eastern conference final against the Knicks, in which 25 of his 39 points that night were scored in the last quarter gave his team a 93-86 victory at the Madison Square Garden, thus earning the sobriquet‘Knick-killer’. Much of the blame for this has been given to Z, who was sitting courtside and kept taunting him throughout the 4th quarter, to which X responded by making shot after shot. X also gave a choke sign to Z. The headline of the New York Daily News the next day sarcastically said, “Thanks a lot Z”. In 1995, X scored a stunning 8 points in 8.9 seconds against Knicks to lead his team to a 107-105 victory. Y acted in Z’s ‘He got game’ in 1998.
  34. 34. Famous for his scoring prowess, physical strength, and career longevity, Gordie Howe is the only player to have competed in the NHL in five (1940s through 1980s) different decades.

He was the inaugural recipient of the NHL Lifetime Achievement Award in 2008. Howe was also referred to during his career as Power, Mr. Everything, Mr. All-Star, The Most, The Great Gordie, The King of Hockey, The Legend, The Man, No. 9, and "Mr. Elbows" (for his tough physicalplay). His name and nickname, "Mr. Hockey," as well as his wifes nickname as "Mrs. Hockey," are registered trademarks. Never hesitating to resort to fists, Howe fought sooften in his rookie season that coach Jack Adams toldhim, "I know you can fight. Now can you show me you can play hockey?”This propensity of his led to the coining of the ‘Gordie Howe Hat-trick’. What is it?

  47. 47. Tendulkar ended the day on 192, and Kambli was ten runs behind. Ramakant Achrekar, their stern coach, explained to Tendulkar that the team should declare first thing in the morning. The next day, with Achrekar far from the ground, Tendulkar put on hispads and Kambli followed suit. They werent done with St Xaviers yet. Everyone in the tent - which doubled up as a dressing-room - had heard the coachs words, but Tendulkar was a megastar. The players just kept quiet. X, all of 13 years old and padded up since the fall of the first wicket, wondered if hed ever get to bat. He had spent a day warming up, going for net practice to remain focussed, returning to see the two still batting, repeating this several times. But the two took advantage of Achrekars absence and kept on batting. Other matches stopped as players wandered over to watch the show.At lunch, selectively acting on Achrekars instructions from the previous day, Tendulkar rang him up from Khao Galli and informed him the score was seven hundred and something, and that Vinod was on 349. He wisely kept his own score to himself, and instead told Achrekar that Kambli wanted to reach his 350. Almost innocently, he passed the phone to the horrified Kambli. The innings was declared immediately. Tendulkar was on 326, and the stand was worth 664 runs. No one knew, at least for a while, that a new record had been written.St Xaviers came out looking as if they had been through a war. Of all the bowlers they could possibly be harassed by, Kambli, who took six wickets, did them in. Tendulkarbowled a few overs, and made haste for the other end of Azad Maidan with X the next day, where the two played another match.

  54. 54. Twenty years after the unforgettable incidence in Barcelona, septuagenarian JimRedmond has been selected to carry the Olympic flame during the torch relay for the London Games. Redmond is one of the British Olympic Associations nominated torchbearers for the8,000-mile nationwide relay that starts in May and culminates with the lighting of the cauldron during the opening ceremony at the Olympic Stadium on 27 July.His moment of fame came during the 400m semi-finals, when the whole of the 65.000 crowd cheered for him as he crossed the finishing line. Though it must be noted that he fails to find a mention in the Olympic record book.
  55. 55. Alain Robidoux is a Canadian snooker player; he played on theWorld Snooker tour from 1988 to 2005 and continues to play in events in Canada. Robidouxs best ranking event performance was reaching the final of the German Open in 1996 when he lost 7–9 to X. In the first round of the 1996 World Championship, Robidoux was beaten 3–10 X again, who played some shots, including a number of them in series, in a ratherpeculiar manner. This behaviour, described by one commentator as X "taking the mick", annoyed Robidoux, who believed that X was mocking him. The matter came to a crux in the eleventh frame, with a peeved Robidoux, at this point 2–8 down, declining to concede the frame as is usual by custom, instead continuing to play for snookers despite a 43-point deficit withonly the pink and black on the table. Robidoux refused to shake X’s hand at the end of the match. The latter responded that heplayed better in that peculiar fashion the former could normally. X later satisfied the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association that he could play to a professional standard in the same manner, by playing the former World Billiards Champion Rex Williams for three frames andwinning every frame. WPBSA disciplinary charges were dropped as a result.

The title then went to Doherty.• He met his girlfriend, Jo Langley, at Narcotics Anonymous.• OSullivan was present at the China Open, in Beijing, where he lost 4–5 to Marco Fu in the first round. However, at the press conference, which followed the match, OSullivan was heard making some lewd remarks inviting a member of the press to perform fellatio on him, then laughing with the World Snooker media spokesman. OSullivan also joked about the size and girth of his penis, before simulating a sexual act on his microphone. In June 2008, the World Professional Billiards and Snooker Association punished OSullivan for his behaviour by docking the appearance money and world ranking points that he had earned from

  59. 59. Karoly Takacs rose to prominence as a shooter in the latter half of 1930s while serving as a sergeant in the Hungarian Army. The next two Olympics but, in 1940 and 1944, were cancelled because of the world war. In 1948, Takacs qualified for the Hungarian Olympic team in the rapid-fire pistolevent. He was 38 years old. Before the competition, the favourite, world champion and world record holder, Carlos Enrique Díaz Saenz Valiente, asked Takacs why he was in London. Takacs replied, "Im here to learn." Takacs won the gold medal and beat the world record by ten points. During the medalceremony, Valiente, who finished second, turned to Takacs and said, "You have learned enough." Four years later in Helsinki, Takács successfully defended his Olympic title to become the first repeat winner of the rapid-fire pistol event.

  66. 66. At the age of ten, X broke his arm after falling from a tree. Because of this injury he had a jerky bowling action, which some considered suspicious. He bowled off-cutters more than conventional off breaks.He took 35 wickets at the average of 10 in the tour of Pakistan in 1954-55. Inthe first five years of his career he played only four Tests in which he took ten wickets. He was already thirty five and on the verge of retirement when he enjoyed his one great success against Australia at Kanpur in 1959-60 in a match that is now remembered as X’s test. He took 14 for 124, which were the best bowling figures by an Indian bowler at that time. It remained so for nearly thirty years before it was bettered another one-Test wonder, Narendra Hirwani. The Kanpur Test stayed as the lone bright spot in his career. He played twomore Tests in the series for five wickets. These were his last Test matches. Heplayed two more years of first class cricket and ended up with 140 wickets forGujarat in the Ranji Trophy. He and Vijay Hazare were the first cricketers to be honoured with the Padma Shri.
  67. 67. When in 1929, X entered the Carlsbad, Viennese master AlbertBecker ridiculed this entry by proposing that any player whom Xdefeated in tournament play should be granted membership intothe X Club. In the same tournament, Becker himself became the first member of the "club". In addition to Becker, the “X Club" eventually included Conel Hugh ODonel Alexander, AbrahamBaratz, Eero Böök, Edgard Colle, Max Euwe, Harry Golombek, Mir Sultan Khan, Frederic Lazard, Jacques Mieses,Philip Stuart Milner-Barry, Karel Opočenský, Brian Reilly, Samuel Reshevsky, Friedrich Sämisch, Lajos Steiner, George Alan Thomas, William Winter, and Frederick Yates. Identify this British-Czech player.

  69. 69. In an era when other co-athletes had none of it, he decided on the contrary. When asked why he initially did so he stated “...because a coach in college said I couldnt..." X said he originally did so out of rebellion against the clean-cut look imposed on him in college. “It took a long time to do so,” he said. It took four months, but X was proud of it, he decided that it was a "good-luck piece.“ He was also quoted as saying, "When I went to the Olympics, I had every intention of getting rid off it, but I realized I was getting so many commentsabout it—and everybody was talking about it—that I decided to keep it. I had some fun with a Russian coach who asked me if it slowed me down. I said ‘No, as a matter of fact, it makes me faster.’ Hes translating as fast as he canfor the other coaches, and the following year every Russian male athlete had one." According to a Sports Illustrated article, on February 14, 1988, after talkingabout getting rid off it for a year, he finally did. "He looked great with it, dont get me wrong," explained his wife Suzy, "but he looks so handsome without it."
  70. 70. In 1887, Lord Kelvin asked how space could be partitioned into cells of equalvolume with the least area of surface between them, i.e., what was the most efficient bubble foam? This problem has since been referred to as the Kelvin problem. He proposed a foam, based on the bitruncated cubic honeycomb, which iscalled the Kelvin structure. This is the convex uniform honeycomb formed by the truncated octahedron, which is a 14-sided space- filling polyhedron (a tetradecahedron), with 6 square faces and 8 hexagonal faces. To conform to Plateaus laws governing the structures of foams, the hexagonal faces of Kelvins variant are slightly curved. The Kelvin conjecture is that this structure solves the Kelvin problem: thatthe foam of the bitruncated cubic honeycomb is the most efficient foam. TheKelvin conjecture was widely believed and no counter-example was known for more than 100 years, until it was disproved by the discovery of the Weaire– Phelan structure - a complex 3-dimensional structure representing an idealised foam of equal-sized bubbles.
