We came, we blogged and we loved it.

We are now moving to our own place. Do come by! You'll be amazed at who all else you'll find.

Kemp's Corner

I had no words to describe what I felt after we got Mein Kempfed by the Springboks yesterday.

Which is why I am glad my pal Qwerty said this

Now, can someone please make my tummy ache go away? I laughed so much.

Ashes to Dust

Well, Mort, it's not like we didn't get to watch blades, just not the way you'd have liked. And it's not like I try to be right all the time, it just sorta happens. There were some positives though - the Captain did pull his weight, and Dhoni was delightful for a bit. But the South Africans mon, they've really picked up from Mr Rhodes eh? Wonder why the wise men at the BCCI didn't try hiring him with all their love for angrez coaches. Wait, I think they did try and he, um, refused. Makes me wonder if it'll help if we had Robin Singh as fielding coach, wat? That's the panacea, in my opinion - make Mohinder Amarnath coach and Robin Singh assistant. And PLEASE send Chappel home or to his cottage at Bangalore's Westend if they wont let him step on Australian soil again. And while we're at it, send Agarkar home too - Mumbai isn't very fussy about its soil.

On a whole other note, the Ashes is as entertaining as ever. I think Mort's taken a step in the right direction- this blog could really use a less depressing subject.

Kev and Warnie

Spending a lazy Sunday morning watching The Ashes. The Poms were somewhat battered by the Convicts for a better part of this test match, but the last hour and a half has been a display of completely brazen batting by Messrs. Collingwood and Peitersen.

In a shocking display of complete disregard, they flayed the Convicts for a little over 150 runs in about 2 hours. Collingwood departed trying to get one too many of Warnie but the big Kev has just been joined by the even bigger Flint. Fireworks expected.

I have just been gobsmacked by the sight of big Kev taking a Sunday stroll down the wicket to Mr.McGrath. Not a 3-step jump like normal, a perfectly timed walk down the pitch. Such madness, but oh what fun!

I hope we get to see some from the Injun blades this afternoon as well!

Glory to the King of Kings-mead

In a sensational display of personal courage and conviction, Captain Lumberjack led his team to a spell-binding defeat at the Kingsmead stadium in Durban last night. After a reasonably average bowling and fielding performance, India sped along to said scintillating defeat at a glorious average of 10 runs per Indian. Captain Lumberjack's perfectly scripted evening of disgrace appeared to suffer a potential setback when Sachin Tendulkar began to look like he wanted to stick around and do something of consequence. But the anxiety turned out to be unnecessary as he too proved himself capable and willing to set aside his narow sense of sanity to accomodate the greater good.

In this humble reporter's humbler opinion, this superlative performance veritably stamps the argument in favor of making Mr Dravid captain for life and Mr Chappel the special in-charge for the resolution of India's border dispute with China.

How can you ban this?

I know - Intikhab feckin Alam was a batsman. No wonder he banned The Big Sho. Take a look at this.

Sheer genius and a larger than life personality. I don't care how much of a dumbass he sounds like when he speaks, I would put him in my World XI just to see that run up, that yorker and then that celebration.

Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep

We've always wondered what's being said when cricketers have a go at one another verbally. I went looking to see if there was any of it online and here's what I found.

I hope your speakers are on :-

The first Vid is Sangakarra mouthing off at Shaun Pollock. Funny!

The second is Sir Flint putting some uppity Windians in their place. He first puts the fear of becoming Ricardo Powell into poor Dwayne Bravo who's smile slowly fades away. Then he winds up Tino Best into trying to hit over the top. His 'mind the windows Tino' worked like a charm. I watched over and over again. What a star!!
