I am torn.

On the one hand, I am so so so incredibly outrageously happy that we won the Ashes.

On the other, my life now has no meaning. I am lost without my cricket. No more Desktop Richie and ball-by-ball cartoon action. And the fifth test was even better - radio coverage, what what!? But now...a vacuous and gaping hole.

What are you going to do about the winter tours?

What about girls who are into extreme ironing?

what about them?!

Well, see, curling is women sweeping, which is OK, but extreme ironing is IRONING.
I post, therefore I am

Very true Kenzie. Much easier to hit a man with a broom. That way reduces any risk of ... damaging any precious rings.

depends where you get hit and with what end of the broom

well said samuel. tradition is a rubbish reason for doing anything, do it coz u want to or dont do it coz u don't. be true to what YOU want, not what people who are long since dead want.

i know its not that extreme, i was just pointing out that tradition is normally f*cking stupid.

england, wales, scotland and ireland are so close they're almost the same country so its daft to still have chips on our shoulders over sh*t that happened before our generation

I don't know. I have wondered that before, its like we can't make our minds up.....shall we compete against each other....or shall we join together and stand a better chance??
I belive we may be having a British football team in the 2012 olympics though.
