Re: The Ashes 2013

Well, that turned out pretty much exactly as I'd expected it to once the England tail got right away from us.

I'm so disappointed for Ryan Harris, who deserves much, much better than to be stuck with this rabble of a batting lineup. Lyon demonstrated he's worth persisting with as well. Rogers made a decent contribution but the rest ought to be ashamed of themselves.

A flood at The Oval or the England side having food poisoning en masse is about all that'll save us from 4-blot at this point. While that would be a bit harsh on the handful of blokes who've proved they are or may be Test cricketers at some point, 4-0 might provoke some action at Cricket Australia toward taking some steps to steer the Titanic away from the iceberg.

Or not. Hit 'n' giggle crap and sucking up to India seems to be their focus these days.

Any chance of getting the Southern Stars to play at the Oval? Might win one for a change.
Sounds like a plan to me.
