The Cricket

 |  Misc, Personal

We won the cricket! Some silly Ashes thing that only happens because the Australians beat us and so we burned the wicket — or something. I only found that out last night. Hoorah!

Anyway: why am I celebrating this? No, it’s not because I’m a sporty person. I miss when I try to kick a football when I’m standing still and the ball is in front of me. No, it’s not because I’m overly patriotic. Oh, and no, it’s not because I think it’ll benefit the British in any way.

So.. why? Because it means that Channel Four will finally stop interrupting The Simpsons and will actually put it on when it’s supposed to be on. When they tell us it’s going to be on! Three cheers for England.

PS. Anyone visiting surfing for ROMs (man, am I getting a ton of hits for this) check out D’oh Games. I’m not sure about the quality of the majority of their ROMs but I downloaded Super Mario 64 and it rocks.

    Haha! Sadly, that’s why I wanted them to get over with it as well, and they went over bloody Hollyoaks as well! *rant* Oh well, eighteen years it’s taken to get the fucking thing back, hoorah! :D

    Hurrah for the simpsons! Although less hurrah for Hollyoaks, which has replaced simpsons today. xD Tsk at it. I found that out about the wickets yesterday too. Great minds.. ;P

    Um, yaay, go England! I played cricket once in gym class and ended up smacking myself in the shin somehow with the bat. I don’t know how that happened.

    I read about that ash thingy a few months ago, although I can’t for the life of me remember where. /* I miss when I try to kick a football when I’m standing still and the ball is in front of me. */ LOL. Me too =D

    I’m a fairly decent soccer/football player, ;) Heh, I forgot for a smidge that football in England is not the same as American football and I was trying to imagine you kicking a big, brown, odd-shaped ball thing xD I have no idea what shape that is o_o Nonetheless! Go England! …:D!

    Hehe, that trophy is so cute! My brother and mum have been watching this religiously, I think they wanted Aussie to win, but shush, don’t tell. I’m not very good with sports that involve catching a ball. I’m actually alright at kicking balls or hitting them with sticks. (DIRTY!)
