‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’

Curb Your Enthusiasm, created by Larry David, is a popular American comedy television series where he stars as himself (Larry David). The show’s title reflects David’s perception that many people seem to live their lives projecting false enthusiasm, which he believes is used to imply that “they are better than you.”

Meanwhile, Gurunath Meiyappan, the son-in-law of the International Cricket Council (ICC) chairman N Srinivasan, finds himself in deep trouble with legal authorities for his role in spot-fixing in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Defending his son-in-law, Srinivasan had famously stated, “”He (Gurunath) did not have any role. He never visited the CSK [Chennai Super Kings] office. But he would go [to the matches]. He is very enthusiastic. Let the commission find out.”

Even Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni seconded that. Now named in the Mudgal committee report for all the wrong reasons, Meiyappan finds himself in trouble for his over ‘enthusiasm’, which makes us believe that he is a perfect fit for a lead in this TV series.
