    Default Ashes (Cricket) 'Discussion'

    I put the discussion bit in 'commas' because we all know all kinds of abuse (Good natured please) will be thrown about this summer.

    So come all you Aussies and English folks let the bashing commence

    Right I'll start, what the hell went wrong in the One Day matches Australia beaten by Bangladesh???

    Man that was horrible even though it is traditional for us to lose the first match but we did kick the butts in the rematch

    JANICE: Dr. Bob, you've given this hospital a bad name.
    DR BOB: You're right. Fred is a terrible name for a hospital. I'll give it a better name. How 'bout Eunice?

    So what's all this grief Shane Warne's getting about his marriage problems, is there any reason for Aussie sports writers calling for his head

    It's just in the paper yesterday it was said that because of his marriage problems the Aussie media were using it to have a go at him. Mind you David Beckham is Media fodder over here so I guess Shane has the same deal over there

    I don't think they need an excuse to have a go at Shane Warne.

    Like our media with David Beckham, although he goes out of his way to encourage them IMHO

    Re: Ashes (Cricket) 'Discussion'

    There's only thing that even remotely interests me about cricket.

    It's a game invented by the English aristocracy, exported around the Empire to all the colonies and now we get all the former colonies coming back to kick Englishg bee-hind at their own game. Where's yer "We won the World Cup in 1966" now, pal?

    However, I gotta admit, I do find the Channel 4 ads with W.G. Grace rising from his grave somewhat amusing.

    Long before you and I were born, others beat these benches with their empty cups,
    To the night and its stars, to the here and now with who we are.

    Another sunrise with my sad captains, with who I choose to lose my mind,
    And if it's all we only pass this way but once, what a perfect waste of time.

    I maintain the reason that Australia is still part of the Commonwealth is because of the Commonwealth Games. Melbourne 2006 - Go Aussie Go...

    See that doesn't mean as much to me. Being from Victoria, rugby is a myterious game that's played north of the border. Is the Rugby World Cup for the players with or without necks (the only way I can differentiate between the codes)?

    Does Rugby league have a World Cup?, I'm not sure, but I'm talking Union here

    Something I want to know is, the rules of Aussie Rules Football, are there any?
