ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsHere's something funny to cure your midweek crisis situation. On the lightest side of humour, we have a sandwich place in Hong Kong called 'Sandwich Hub' that is written in the same way as 'Porn Hub' and has become quite an attraction for sandwich lovers in Hong Kong! © Reddit The tagline to the place reads: 'Sandwich that'll make you come' and I am not sure if it's a straight-up pun or they add a certain type of aphrodisiac to their legendary sandwiches, but whatever it is, this innovative way to sell food is surely gathering some eyeballs from everywhere. Reddit users were actually the ones who discovered it and put it up online and here's what they actually think! © Reddit The food joint serves some classic Indian dishes like Vada Pav, Dosa and Behl Puri as well. It's run by an Indian. Well, only an Indian will get such innovative business ideas I suppose! Well, I am not sure about you but Johhny Sins will surely have a great time here, in case he decides to visit! © Facebook So, in case you're in Hong Kong anytime soon, do give this place a shout. Maybe the pun is worth it, after all!
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsAhead of the 2018 Asia Cup, cricket fans and pundits seemed pretty sure about the competition between India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka for the all-important trophy. While some anticipated Bangladesh to spring a surprise or two, few would have expected anything at all from the likes of Afghanistan and Hong Kong. But, since the first game, the ongoing tournament continues to offer surprises. It all began with Bangladesh recording a 137-run rout of Sri Lanka in the tournament opener. Then, it was Afghanistan who romped to a 91-run win to send the Lankans packing. The fourth match of the tournament saw Hong Kong almost pulling off an upset against India before eventually losing the game by 26 runs. © BCCL For a team that is still an associate member of the International Cricket Council (ICC), Hong Kong clearly punched above their weight to give India a surprising scare. Chasing a total of 285 runs, Hong Kong got off to a roaring 174-run start with both openers Nizakat Khan (92) and Anshuman Rath (73) notching up their respective fifties. But, a middle-order collapse saw them being restricted to 259/8 in their quota of 50 overs. Hong Kong did lose the game, which they probably think they should've, but there is no denying that the team packs a punch and is destined to do better in the future. Their performance against India also saw them earning a lot of praise from the cricket bigwigs and fans alike. But, the best gesture for Hong Kong came from the Indian team themselves. Dressing Room ð¹: #TeamIndia's heart-warming gesture. After a hard-fought game, #TeamIndia visited Hong Kong's dressing room and met the promising cricketers, posed for pictures and shared their knowledge - by @28anand.

A video of the incident was shared by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Twitter. "Dressing Room: #TeamIndia's heart-warming gesture. After a hard-fought game, #TeamIndia visited Hong Kong's dressing room and met the promising cricketers, posed for pictures and shared their knowledge," the Indian cricket board tweeted. The video has since gone viral on the micro-blogging website, where the cricket fans were seen appreciating Team India's touching gesture. India showed great sportmanlike behaviour throughout the England tour and look like they are continuing it in this competition. They are a credit to their nation and the whole world of cricket. #respect — Dave Bundy (@bundy201065) September 19, 2018 Good Gesture, well played Hong Kong.

ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsMahendra Singh Dhoni is undoubtedly one of the finest cricketers of his time. But at times even the best have to go through some of the worst situations and Dhoni is no different. In Dhoni's career too, there have been occasions where he had to face an embarrassing defeat at the hands of his opponents. His latest defeat happened on Tuesday at the Asia Cup, against Hong Kong in Dubai. © Twitter It wasn't a good outing for India's 'Captain Cool', as he left the field without scoring any runs against Hong Kong in Asia Cup. Dhoni got out for a duck to the ball delivered by Ehsan Khan. The stadium was filled with cheers for Dhoni when he came inside the field to play his innings, but by the third ball that excitement and happiness evaporated in thin air, and what remained was a feeling of shock and disbelief in the eyes of every person watching the match. © Twitter Dhoni's dismissal left many of his fans disappointed, but if there's anyone who was more disappointed than Dhoni and the entire team was probably this 9-year-old kid whose reaction was caught on camera and is now going viral. pic.twitter.com/XF9R3BVYQO — Gentlemen's Game (@DRVcricket) September 18, 2018 Like all of us, this kid too had huge expectations from Dhoni and reportedly was watching Dhoni play live for the first time. He was seen yelling and pushing the chair angrily and we guess in that one moment most of us saw our childhood in him. We can understand the pain, kid. After all its not everyday that you see your idol getting out for a zero. In Dhoni's case we've seen it happen only 9 times. However, both Dhoni and Team India will now have to pull up their socks to compete against Pakistan in the match that starts at 5 PM today.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsBack in 1932, when Major Dhyan Chand-led team hammered USA 24-1 at the Olympics, the margin of their victory looked like it was going to stay in the record books as one of the iconic moments in the history of Indian hockey. That win remained India's biggest victory margin on the international stage for almost 86 years. Now, fast-forward to 2018, and what seemed like an impossible record to break, has indeed been shattered by the current crop of Indian hockey players. On 22nd August, the Indian men's hockey team managed to pull off what their predecessors could only dream of - improve on the country's 24-1 victory margin. FT| The Indian Men's Hockey Team score 26 goals against Hong Kong China in their third game of the @asiangames2018 which saw 4 players claim hat-tricks and a sublime team effort to achieve the large score-line on 22nd August 2018.#IndiaKaGame #AsianGames2018 #INDvHKG pic.twitter.com/UiqYtgzbsq — Hockey India (@TheHockeyIndia) August 22, 2018 Locking horns with Hong Kong, the Indian team massacred their opponents to notch up an unbelievable 26-0 win in their Pool A encounter of the 2018 Asian Games in Jakarta. Rupinder Pal Singh emerged as the top-scorer for his side with five goals to his name. His teammates Harmanpreet Singh and Akashdeep Singh contributed with four and three goals, respectively. The likes of Lalit Upadhyay, Varun Kumar and Manpreet Singh scored two goals apiece, while the rest of the goals were scored by Sunil SV, Surender Kumar, Vivek Sagar Prasad, Amit Rohidas, Chinglensana Kangujam, Mandeep Singh, Simranjeet Singh and Dilpreet Singh. After a thumping 17-0 win over Indonesia, Indian men's #Hockey team now defeated Hong Kong by 26-0 & broke the 86-years old record of highest victory margin in an International match. This is outstanding performance. Well done Team India. Keep it up.#AsianGames2018 #IndiaKaGame pic.twitter.com/lCDtPuYPLp — Sachin Pilot (@SachinPilot) August 22, 2018 While the dominant display by India helped them in rewriting the history books, their sensational effort was still not good enough against the astronomical feat of New Zealand who currently hold the record for the biggest win in international hockey owing to their 36-1 triumph over Samoa in 1994. Nonetheless, the Indian fans will be happy to see their team romping to their second big consecutive win in this year's competition after they fired 17 goals past Indonesia in their first Pool A game. Until that point, it was India's best showing at the Asian Games with their previous best being the 12-0 win against Bangladesh in 1982. If the men, under the tutelage of new coach Harinder Singh, are busy enjoying their rampant run at the Games, the Indian women's hockey team isn't far behind either. The women's team left inexperienced Kazakhstan red-faced with a 21-0 scoreline in their Pool B clash on 21st August. FT| The Indian Women's Hockey Team's fantastic all-round show during their game against Kazakhstan at the 18th Asian Games 2018 spurs the team on to an impressive 21-0 victory at the competition on 21st August 2018.#IndiaKaGame #AsianGames2018 #INDvKAZ pic.twitter.com/zkRidWMAwq — Hockey India (@TheHockeyIndia) August 21, 2018 A total of four Indian women players bagged a hat-trick of goals in what was arguably one of their best performances in international hockey. They also missed out on a chance to enter the history books by just one goal to match the all-time Asian Games record of 22-0 - a feat also achieved by the Indian team when they decimated Hong Kong in 1982. They followed it up with another clinical showing against Indonesia who were forced to endure a 8-0 defeat in their first Pool B game. On the back of some big wins, the Indian women's team will now face South Korea in their third group game on 25th August, while the men's side will be seen sweating it out against Japan on 24th August.
