How could anyone think that Linking a game to #Happiness was Impossible ?

Well not if you are an Indian and been around or connected to #India during the last 25-35 years.  Here's a tribute by  Sambit Bal of ESPNCricInfo  to the Sachin Tendulkar - who to me is Cricket and cricketer personified. I feel that Sachin and his career is the best example for any young cricketer (and their parents and well wishers) in today's GenY crowd to emulate.
