Mohun Bagan AC - The National Club of India

Check out the Mohun Bagan AC - The National Club of India website. Especially the trips down memory lane and the 'ladies' section.

I like the "Only 7 men are enough to beat you natives" comment made by the Dalhousie Club dude. At the end of the match, even 11 were not good enough as they lost 6-1!!

Also in the ladies section, do read the food habits column. Haven't read something as earnest and funny in a long long time!!

"After a big win, in 1985-86, I can't remember properly, I saw my father was having worm rasogollas with friends, and they are having a bet on that. I remember that incident, because the next day, my father was admitted to the hospital after eating 73 rosogollas."

Bhaalo!! Bhaalo!!

I know two things about Mohun Bagan, the name of the captain and that bangals don't support Mohun Bagan.

Worm Rosogollas?

The second might not be entirely true, as I find my family (mostly bangals) split between MB and EB.

I actually don't know the name of the captain now. Used to be a fan sometime back. Sigh.

(If you knew how sports-clueless I was, you'd know why I'm so happy I know, hehe)
