July 11, 2006
Due to World Cup my cricket match was shortened to merely a 35 over match. I was also demoted to number 3, but despite our opening batsmen wasting 11 overs of poor bowling before his inevitable demise. I came in and knocked up 91 not out, annoying as those extra 5 over would have easily enabled me to make a century, against admittedly a weak side. One of the highlights was hitting a Blundells school boy straight over Long off, out the ground, the ball eventually being retrieved from a neighbouring field.
Also, will be joining Mr Lu's band of explorers and heading over to the States on August 28th. Will be good fun schooling a few yanks in the glory of the British Empire and hopefully at poker to boot. Rule Britaania….Britannia rules the waves…Should be a good oppertunity to analyse the best ways of winding yanks up, also perhaps yanks from different areas are more sensitive to different insults.
Whilst the traditional twin towers jibe is obviously sufficient for those in the New York area, and school shootings are a good, solid, banker for insulting any cheeky yanks, it will be nice to extend my repertoire of banter.
