Gloating I am
I shouldn't gloat but...I as a confirmed Cricket Tragic, I can't help myself so...
Billy was at school this morning and the teacher asked all the children what their fathers did for a living. All the typical answers came out, fireman,policeman,salesman, chippy, captain of industry etc, but Billy was being uncharacteristically quiet and so the teacher asked him about his father. "My father is an exotic dancer in a gay club and takes off all his clothes in front of other men. Sometimes if the offer is really good, he'll go out with a man, rent a cheap hotel room and let them sleep with him." The teacher quickly set the other children some work and took little Billy aside to ask him if that was really true. "No" said Billy, "He plays cricket for England but I was just too embarrassed to say."
As for the real news besides again pasting the English in the traditional manner expected, the best Headline from the WACA was:
Privilege to watch three musketeers put England to sword
"Only the most hard-hearted rejoiced at the disintegration of the elite of English cricket, but it was a privilege to witness batsmen of the calibre of Michael Hussey, Adam Gilchrist and Michael Clarke in full cry"
Gilchrist was in full cry too, 24 of six balls and the same poor "bowler" and 100 in 57 balls..
Oh well sometimes..life is good!!
