Big congratulations to the England cricket team for winning the Ashes against Australia. For the first time in 24 years, we retained the Ashes on Australia's home surf and the win was colossal. Not only did we beat them, we destroyed them at Melbourne. Ricky Ponting, a longstanding thorn in England's side and phenomenal cricketer to boot, looked a defeated man from the first test and it's looking like his days are numbered as the Australian captain. This win means so much to the English cricket fans because it's without doubt, the greatest sporting rivalry between two nations. 
As for me, the body clock will now return to normal with no more all-night tv coverage on Sky1. Phew... 


  1. Aha, I've heard about this winning the 'Ashes' against Australia. I watched a bit of cricket and have no idea what the heck the rules are. 'It's raining, old chap, you lose'..
    Take care from a rather confused Canadian:-)

  2. Don't get me started on long hops, silly mid-on's and a googley! It's a totally mystifying game to most people, especially for those from North America. However, when you get in into it (particularly when it the Ashes), you sort of become hooked. It all starts again January 3rd with the final test.
    Thanks for checking in Gary
