I've got to confess, that i'm struggling to get excited about the Ashes win, could only be cause i don't rate the present Aussie line-up, (less Ponting !, )however, it's delightful to see that Mr Simper has found a new past-time, infinately more entertaining then watching Arsenal !!!

Al
You have to understand the game there is a geezer who stands in front of 3 sticks with a bigger stick in his hands there is another geezer who does a 100mtrs sprint and throws a red ball with the consistancy of a cannon ball at the geezer defending the 3 sticks The red ball is travelling at over 100 mph. Now if nothing else you have gotta admit that takes Balls.
As a side line I suppose you could compare it to catching the caber.

Remember when you are out you have to go in and when you are in you have to "come out"
