Noted in passing...
...this very small story, of dozens of Mumbai-ites going around the city dressed in blue, the day of the game.
While it was expected that hundreds of spectators at Wankhede Stadium would be attired in blue, scores of others could be seen around the city, especially on the local trains that are the most popular form of public transport, though they were not heading towards the stadium.
"Just like that. India's playing at Wankhede," was the simple yet profound answer one of them gave when asked why he was dressed in blue though he wasn't watching the match.
