Advent-ures in indecision  
I am not certain what I want to happen in the third Test starting tomorrow. Obviously England needs to win the Ashes in Australia, but if England are as dominant in this Test as they were in the last one, not only will all the excitement be over, but -- well -- it's a teeny bit dull. So I am hoping that the rejigged Australian team is actually a piece of genius selection and the remaining three Tests will be nail-biting and thrilling.

And I know that some of you are thinking what is the point without Stuart Broad? Fear not, I have four words and a conjunction for you.

Steven Finn:


and James Anderson:



(I couldn't find any pics of him with clothes on.)

Even if you are an American and have no idea what is going on, there is so much to watch for!

I didn't want people to think I was objectifying him unnecessarily. This was necessary objectification!

My sentiments exactly! lol

INTERESTING.

When I typed 'James Anderson' into Google, I got pages and pages of pics of him galavanting about fully clothed. When I typed 'James Anderson naked', however, that pic you've posted was the first one to pop up...

Can you hear my raised eyebrow? Okay, good.

You know me far, far too well.

Package is in the post. Treat my baby well!

*snigger*

I will treat it with kindness and respect! And look, you know I do not judge you - I just spent a very happy half hour ogling the results of a search for 'Tom Hardy naked' ;P

(Test starts tomorrow. Just so you know.)

Y'know, if they actually played the game naked I might be tempted...

And you can turn on the Google 'Adult' filter you know (or so I've been told).

Does that give you MORE naked cricketers?

One can only hope! Surely anything else would be madness!

I love the way one need only say 'charity' to them to get their kit off!

Bless their philanthropic hearts!

I laughed so hard at this, albeit a little ruefully. It pretty much captures our nation as a whole. >.>

Oh dear ... that was unfortunately worded, wasn't it? Sorry! When I think American, I think New Yorker and Harpers Journal, not USA Today, and most of the actual Americans I meet reinforce that way of thinking.

I am torn between grinding them into the dirt and great matches.

Wot no Cook??
blamebramptonblamebrampton on December 15th, 2010 02:51 pm (UTC)
I have already worshipped at the altar of A. Cook. And will worship there some more ... Trying to show the breadth of talent in the team, you know ;-)

And yes, I feel the same way. I'm almost hoping for a draw in Perth, though will be astonished if the Australians can manage it.
