Ticker

Jacksonville - this week.

Cricket at the "G"

This past Sunday night a bunch of us went to the Cricket 20/20 Australia vs South Africa. The 20/20 is a great format fit for us Americans who are used to a game lasting no more than 3 hours. Australia basically kicked the crap out of South Africa in true Aussie Cricket style. The match took place at the MCG, (Melbourne Cricket Ground) hallowed grounds for Cricket and Aussie rules football fans. It seats more than 100,000 but they haven't quite reached the Penn State Football Beaver Stadium status of 110,000. That is a goal near impossible to achieve.

It is now official - I like cricket better than baseball - at least to watch. Oh, I also got myself a nice bucket hat - awesome.

A bucket had is a floppy short short bill that goes all the way around. I'll try and post a picture.

Ummmmm......the cricket was over a week ago and there hasn't been an update yet. Any chance that'll come soon?

Whilst i have enjoyed reading your adventures, I am assuming the lack of recent updates is a sign of a boredom with nothing exciting to report. Maybe you need to get out more so we have more to read each day. Or stop dreaming about cricket and future pets and hit the keyboards again.

Watching paint dry is more exciting than reading this Blog. I guess Australia is a boring country with nothing to do or see...

I heard a rumour that there's been a delay on the update because in his spare time he's been looking at real estate in the hope of purchasing a house over there in Australia. I guess it can't be that bad a place Mister Rogers if that's what he's doing.
