What’s it with ‘The NYT’?

Other than the recent sari episode, seems Shashi Tharoor’s getting flake for his op-ed on cricket. Just felt like reading the article and searched for shashi tharoor cricket in the NYT. Followed up this link there and it gave an abstract saying you should cough up $4.95 to read that single article of the great Shashi’s in full. But then a blog post (sorry, am not able to find which one) listed another link to the same story clicking on which I was asked for my free NYT registration and was directly taken in to the whole piece.

Oh yeah, as regards Shashi’s opinion on Americans not liking / not able to understand cricket, has he put the  question to himself of how many Indian cricket fans would like / follow baseball? Given India’s recent dismal performance and assuming baseball takes root here, he will have a piece on how westernised (oops, cricket is western too but who cares) the world’s becoming, of how when he visited his homeland the last time he was pained to see teenagers weilding baseball bats etc.
