Didn't see much of the cricket last night. Working hard, don'tcha know - as hard as Chinese algebra. Instead I listened to it on the wahhless, flicking between 774 and SEN, then arriving home just as Brett Lee smote that shocker from Dicky Knee for the winning runs. Yay us. We rock.
But - BUT! Had we lost we could have blamed the Jews:
"This is going to be a horrible loss for South Africa. A massive embarrassment."
~~ Ian Cohen on SEN with Straya needing 7 to win.
Sheer madness, I know. My furious bawling at the radio caused the guy in the next car to give me a wary look. Obviously Cohen is either a fraud who knows nothing about cricket, or a plant working for South Africa.
PS: The papers are full of redemption for Lee and Kaspro. But does this win make up for the Ashes? Does it fuck! That's like suggesting a football match in round one constitutes a Grand Final replay. Edgbaston vs. Joburg is no contest.
