How it is…

The Wonderful Wizards of Aus

It’s all my fault, I knew I should have kept my unholy gob shut! Yet I did predict this disaster, didn’t I say they’d be back?

I am referring of course to the new life breathed into Australian cricket and the thrashing (and I don’t use that word lightly!) handed out to the touring England team down under. I knew after the first test, but wouldn’t admit to myself, that the Aussies were going to regain the coveted Ashes. It was almost a certainty after the second test because we were two-nil down and then had to visit Perth – we never win in Perth.

So it proved to be true. While England stuttered at the crease the Aussies swatted the ball around the WACA with ease. While England toiled in the field the Aussies looked like they were just enjoying the sunshine. Lyon found spin and turn where Swann could not. Meanwhile Johnson, Siddle, Watson and Harris thundered in like they were wishing permanent harm to their foe. All the while England were cracking at the same rate as the Perth pitch.

(By the way Mitchell Johnson – that’s a very, very pale impression of Dennis Lillee you’re attempting to pull off with that stupid moustache, not even Merv Hughes mate!)

Yes, congratulations Australia “fair”, but remember: you’re at our place next so you’d better not forget to bring that little urn with you!

This post is especially for my mates in or from Australia – “G’day”…I’m not bitter.

  1. Hard to hit a man when he’s down, but i’m afraid to say it must be done: B’wahahaaaa! Quietly i’m just relieved Oz managed to pull off a sporting victory this year, as late as it was. It hasn’t been a good time.

  3. I’m afraid I won’t be losing sleep over it either way. You win some and you lose some.

    • True. It wouldn’t matter to me if it was anyone else but I love it when we beat them because they really take it to heart.

    • Yeah, it started around the beginning of the month, dunno why. I suppose WordPress thinks it’s festive.

      • Well wordpress has a grudge against me, cause in mine nothing is falling out of the sky, not even money.
