So, England won the Ashes*. CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I don’t follow cricket much these days. Hardly at all. But this is very notable! More here in the Guardian. (Image right from here.)
A bloody disgrace. 20 million people and not one decent spinner amongst us.
Ah! Cricket, lovely cricket. Great to have the Ashes back! It was a fascinating series as it was very close and if we’re honest, could easily have gone either way. This is far more interesting than Australia having the one sided dominance over every other team in the cricketing world as was the case until fairly recently. Thanks for mentioning the Ashes win on the blog!
