Where is the AGB T20 post?

Tony

Here is the AGB T20 post.

@tkyc

Pretty, handsome, Dr. Smith

Actually I just saw, and this is in all seriousness, a group of young homosexuals break-dancing on a float between overs.

Thankfully I recorded Broncos vs. Raiders.

Was it this kind of float dancing?

// that sort of action?

Seen it several times, but Predator is better than BBL.

Cameron

Hey, I don't remember commenting on this post and I haven't even switched to the shiraz yet.

Cameron

"Was it this kind of float dancing?"

No, that's a pic. from M. Patard's 45th BD, um, so I'm told.

Cameron

Blewie: all of a sudden Warnie is none for 42 off 2 overs.

BJ: He wont be happy with that.

Cameron

What a ghastly affair this 20 over cricket is.

Tony Tea

An alternate take: Big Bash begins with a bang.

So someone must have watched it. I'm going to try and watch the Scorchers as WA cricket teams are going for the all-time record this season - three for three.

Wooden spoons that is.

I reckon they can do it too. Gibbs will play like shit, Shaun Marsh is scared out of his wits at the very idea of a cricket bat and North and Voges should have been sectioned by now.

Tony Tea

Hats off to Adam Voges. Not often a "best clubman" is elected skipper. Right, Nick Maxwell?

Gideon: Big Bash bumf takes artifice to a new, low, level

The Thunder? They're "the real Sydney and will represent the hard-working families from the heartland of Australia", playing "with the same spirit as their local community - determined and hard-working with a never give in attitude".

The Sixers? They're for those who "love the glitz and glamour of the harbour city". And guess what? "They don't shy away from aiming to be the team that everyone else wants to be. Their uniforms are bright but that's the way they want it. They'll be loud and proud on and off the field."

That someone was paid for writing this crud is as miraculous as anything you will witness in the BBL this summer.

Cameron

'They'll be loud and proud on and off the field.'

That explains a lot.

I work for a company that is becoming more and more enamoured of that sort of self-congratulatory bullshit. I feel like I spend more time in meetings or standing about in the office being told of the wondrous things we are all achieving, have achieved and will achieve than I spend achieving anything useful.

Scary stuff. Whoever wrote that tripe for the BBL would fit right in. It's a growth business.

Big Ramifications

Jesus. Joseph. And Jumping Jehoshaphat. That is terrible stuff, Tony.

In the same vein, I thought it was childish that the newly created Fremantle Dockers went for a marketing angle, one that they continue to push to this day. The Eagles were always just the Eagles. "Yippee we've got a Perth team let's all get on board."

And like all AFL footy clubs, a lot of rich dudes got involved. So the brainiacs at Fremantle went for a boringly safe and predictable Noble Working Class vs. The Eagles Are Run By Toffs as the club's main selling point. Who in the hell swallows that kind of crap?

The Fremantle marketing boys very blatently invented a SCHISM! Made the SCHISM out of thin air and put it in peoples' branes. A SCHISM to try and generate membership churn.

Sweet Tone, internet sensation

When CricAussie were setting up the Melbourne Renegades and Melbourne Stars they tried pretty much the same lines, except that the two teams were Wogs and Skips. In short, anyway.

Big Ramifications

That scene happened within the first few minutes of the TV pilot, and it's only now that it's registered what they were actually protesting about. At that stage I was too busy trying to figure out what the hell kind of comedy I was watching.

ALLOW SAME SEX MARRIAGE AT SEA

That is most amusing!

Captain Paul Watson

Save the gay whales!

There was already a perfectly good TISM schism to use. Eagle fans are wankers, Docker fans are yobbos.

Shaun Marsh just smashed one through the covers that looked very quick even in slow motion. Scorching indeed.

lou

Shaun got his batting back then? That's something, I guess.

Framantle used to be working class, now it's anything but. But you could say that about most of Perth, I guess.

lou

I mean, Fremantle. Freo, you know.

Professor Rosseforp

Jut saw some highlights of the Big Bash (as opposed to the Medium Mash or Small Smash, I suppose). I saw Muralidharan's bowling action and it has really improved -- on opposite day.

Tony Tea

I think you will find you were viewing an optical illusion.

Tony Tea

I love the way Doherty took a hat-trick, but the third wicket (LB) should have been given not out. Those kinds of things appeal to me.
