When the boys met Yuvraj Singh!

leave a comment »

I have not really been a cricket fan but difficult to stay away from it when the entire family is hooked onto the sport. So when on twitter I was asked if I would like to attend a Yuvraj Singh event before I could say anything my son started jumping with excitement and wanting me to say yes. Soon my nephew, who is a bigger fan of the game, got the news and he wanted to come along too.

So what was the event about? It was basically to announce that Yuvraj Singh would be the brand ambassador for Puma in India. What I liked was the announcement of the brand association was shrouded in mystery till the very end and the social media was abuzz with the #love12 hashtag which was being used as a build-up before the big announcement.

So I had to leave work early that day and run to pick up both the kids. Did I mention in his excitement to meet the cricketer my nephew missed school that day? But sshhhh let’s not spoil his party. Kids will be kids.

They were both super excited and my nephew kept rattling off facts about Yuvraj Singh to me so that I didn’t come across as someone who didn’t know much about the game.

Must say it is not just these boys who were going gaga about Yuvi, even the media was! On reaching there realised just how much the cricketers are revered by our media. Everyone was clamoring around the cricketer for a few bytes while my boys were only interested in shaking hands and getting a pic with him.

So we waited patiently for him to get done with all his interviews, must say he handled everyone with aplomb and was sweet enough to talk to the boys and get pics clicked with them.

All in all a fun event. Did I mention my son is now totally enamoured with the idea of becoming a cricketer when he grows up so that he gets smart shoes to wear, and people wanting to click pictures with him everywhere he goes! 🙂


Thanks Yuvraj Singh for making their day, Bigger thanks to Puma for making it possible for the kids to meet THE MAN!
