Sri Lankan cricket player breaks world record

Congratulations on an awesome job Sri Lankan cricket team & Muttiah Muralitharan. Read about Muralitharan's achievement that will no doubt have all of Sri Lanka & cricket fans in the sub-continent partyin', here. From the article:

"After fittingly breaking the world record for the most career test wickets Monday at Asgiriya Stadium in Kandy, the ground where he created the first of a long list of records as a schoolboy, Sri Lanka's Muttiah Muralitharan said he never dreamed of coming this far. Muralitharan fell short in his bid to break the record on Warne's home territory when Sri Lanka toured Australia last month. But the off spinner said it was even better that he achieved the record in his home town."

And further down:

"The 35-year-old off spinner's achievement on the cricket field has made him a household name in Sri Lanka - and a source of hope and inspiration to a nation battered by decades of civil war.

His status as the only Tamil in the national team links together the two warring parties on the cricket field."

More at this article. Congrats again Muralitharan & team Sri Lanka!

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.
