Barney Stinson would have said Legen (wait for it) Dary! Sachin Tendulkar is not just a name for the cricket fanatics instead it has become the divine words. 50 centuries, more often used by the the News Channels as, is what is just a number for him. 
Truly, a legend with his own way of dealing things.

Sachin better than Bradman - Accepts the Aussies. (a cold blow over Ricky ponting although) 

BigB said Ironically "Why must there be a debate or even a discussion on whether Sachin is greater than Don Bradman or not? Sachin is greater, period!"
He Added "By bringing the topic up for debate you are somewhere unsure whether he really is deserving of being great or not. And this is objectionable to me."

Time Magazine on Sachin Tendulkar.

"When Sachin Tendulkar travelled to Pakistan to face one of the finest bowling attacks ever assembled in cricket, Michael Schumacher was yet to race a F1 car, Lance Armstrong had never been to the Tour de France, Diego Maradona was still the captain of a world champion Argentina team, Pete Sampras had never won a Grand Slam. When Tendulkar embarked on a glorious career taming Imran and company, Roger Federer was a name unheard of; Lionel Messi was in his nappies, Usain Bolt was an unknown kid in the Jamaican backwaters. The Berlin Wall was still intact, USSR was one big, big country, Dr Manmohan Singh was yet to "open" the Nehruvian economy. It seems while Time was having his toll on every individual on the face of this planet, he excused one man. Time stands frozen in front of Sachin Tendulkar. We have had champions, we have had legends, but we have never had another Sachin Tendulkar and we never will."

Now we hope he reaches his 100 centuries soon and thrashes out others in the coming WC.
