As a "Trans Atlantic friend", Ted, of course I bloody well know what The Ashes are. They're what you get hauled on Saturday nights in the phone booth behind the pub.  Just make sure you don't get her muffler tucked in. ::)

Thank you, Father, for bring up this topic.

I forecast a 4 win and a draw to the Aussies.    I am so confident that I'm prepared to put Bounder's pension money on it.

Yup....it's time to put down a few more bottles as I have finished off the last lot. I just hope that they are not so sour this time and you don't get the continuous whine of "back problems"!

Your pension money is looking shaky, Bounder.

Please Lord, let it rain for the next two days in the capital of the driest state in Australia.

I thought these interruptions only happened at Lords......at least they will be able to enjoy a good bottle in that part of the world.

More rain for tomorrow I think.......darn...especially with Kevin in good form...at last!

Bounder ???

With the Australian selectors in a bit of a fluster there's a public outcry and a move afoot to recall Shane Warne to the Aussie 11.   It'll never happen.

However, I note by the latest headlines that, even off the field, he's still screwing the Poms. ;D

He could probably turn out for us now anyway, he's been here so long.  Actually Bluey could you let Andrew Hilditch know that I bowl a bit of left arm spin and once had a can of XXXX, so I'd be up for a game.  As long as it doesn't get in the way of my flying nights...

Binks, I fear that you are too polite to accurately describe the act that was perpetrated on our boys at the WACA.  Let's hope (and I have every faith) that they will regain their honour at Melbourne.  This is a team that will be bristling with resolve. The pendulum will swing back.  Strauss, Swann and Collingwood to shine.

Andrew is keen, but Ricky not so much - reckons you might show the rest of the team up too much! ::) ::) ::)

Not that i understand what the heck cricket is about, I mean really, FOUR days for a match, or whatever the heck you call it?

According the the South China Post, it appears the Poms are doing something to the Aussies...

Did the Poms win, then?  And whose Ashes are they anyway?   Curious In Miami Beach needs to know.
PS Is this how you spell Poms?

Post by: =CfC=BlueDog on December 28, 2010, 03:10:00 PM
I approached TS3 with much apprehension this morning, fearful of gloating taunts from FT and B.   But what a bunch of gentlemen - not one mention was made of Ricky and his bunch of wankers - at least, none that was obvious.   Perhaps there might have been a subtle dig somewhere; but if there was, I failed to pick up on it.

Thank you all for your kind consideration in Bluey's moment of grief.

Post by: =CfC=Father Ted on December 29, 2010, 06:11:54 AM
It's a peculiar aspect of the English sporting psyche: if we'd been the underdogs then there would have been gloating a go go on my part, but as it was...

Also I actually feel sorry for Ricky (sympathy from a Pom - the last thing he would want!)  The other illustrious names who underpinned the glory years of his reign were able to retire with reputation and pride intact.  He chose to oversee the attempt to rebuild the team as his own skills were in decline and is paying the price in terms of his diminishing esteem

Poms don't gloat......we keep a stiff upper lip even in victory.......even when there is little opposition......and even when the opposition just provide a bit of practice....but I say....you need to change your presentation chaps...

Always polite and gracious.....

Although Blighty bound, those ashes are still to be won!

And although sidelined because of his fractured thumb, Ricky will be there making obscene gestures with it towards the Poms - and probably towards the umpires as well. ;D

Well, it appears the Aussie bowlers can't trouble the Pommie batsmen; and the Aussie batsmen can't cope with the Pommie bowling.   Aussie fielding needs a bit of work as does the running between wickets.   Also (regretably), Aussie sledging is not up to the standard of the Poms'.

But other than that, things are looking pretty good! 8)

I say BD...you should change your avatar to "Smogesdansing"...it really is not cricket to have a unilateral declaration of allegiance to the bacon and cheese brigade and still dance in red and white with all the bells and whistles of Empire reeking with roast beef and warm ale.

We could arrange for Father Ted to give you some basic cricket coaching...starting with how to get a run by running between the wickets when there is little chance of the opposition gathering the ball and hitting the stumps before the run is complete. It is after all one of the basics and will help you get the "idea".

Lesson two will follow after you have had your bacon and cheese sandwich and a piece of raw herring.

"Skal"
