April 2nd 2011 was a very painful day for most Sri Lankans. Inspired by SightScreen.com, the sadist in us thought it best to rehash some of that pain and get you to share it with the rest of the world. We thought a year and 2 weeks on was a good time to get this on air as 2 weeks after the WC was when we actually started to feel like we were going to be ok last year. Also, it took me a while to edit all this together as some of you appear to have done your recording via a contraption compromising of a razor blade and a hak-gediya. We apologize profusely for some of the sound quality but some of you really should spend some coin on a better mic rig.
There is anger at selections, badly timed birthdays, general depression, conspiracy theories and an incredible ending.
The fellow Sadists in order.

Thanks you to everyone who took the time to share your memories. Hopefully more will contribute when we ask them to rate our good looks next time.
Omnium Gatherum – Soul Journeys
Thanks for sharing your thoughts guys, I can’t imagine it could have been easy to remember all that. I concur that after the Tendulkar dismissal, everything just went to shit somehow. I was saddened that Mendis was sitting in the stands – he deserved better, rather than being pigeonholed as someone whom India had supposedly ‘figured out’. Also, I’m convinced that Kapugedera has photos of a senior SLC official in an intimate embrace with a goat, which is the only explanation as to why he seems to get paraded out at finals time.
2007 was also a painful day for Sri Lankan cricket and their fans when they lose final of ICC World cup, Sri Lankan cricket team is my favorite one because they always play with their heart and soul.
