Ritchie Benaud cost me 5quid

Postby pault » Thu Aug 04, 2005 2:26 pm

My grumpiness seems to be getting worse ... :evil:

I've just gone out and bought a cheap radio because I can't stand for one minute longer Ritchie Benaud closely followed by Geoff Boycott's cricket commentary.

If I ever end up in purgatory it will be with those two wittering on about what they did in their boring careers with voices that the NHS could use as a cheap substitute for anaesthetic!!!!

well, shame Auzzies aren't allowed to be members - not often you get to pip one of their teams at the post ...

for those who think Cricket is boring - a win by 2 runs in a game where approximately 1,160 runs were scored in total (by both teams combined) -now that's what I call marginal!!!!!

I've had to bandage my fingernails up - and the cheap radio was well worth the effort - Richie Benaud really does do my head in.

interesting thing too - because I was watching on cable TV but listening on the radio - there was a slight time delay between the 2 - it meant that I could potter about the house and still have time to jump in front of the TV when I heard a wicket had fallen and still be in time to see it happen "live" - if that makes sense - was I in Dr Who space/time continuum territory?? :wink:

Ach, leave home for a few days and see what happens. Wazzup with the cricket fixation? Nothing that a double can't cure, I hope?

Ya know, IIRC Postnuke has a "banned words" facility, normally quite unnecessary for such a friendly place as TMC. However, I can see the word "football" being added next time I have an SSH session going ...... :twisted: :wink:

Cricket now, that's entirely another matter ....

Ooooh, censorship... dangerous... we'll soon have people like Pault lobbying (sorry, that's the word that the French don't like :-P ) for other terms such as "doser"... "pod"... "pre-ground"... "chocolate sprinkles"... all to be outlawed... and before you know it TMC will have become a fundamentalist state rather than the idealist utopia it should be, a place where we can all be respected... irrespective of the size of our tampers or the ridges on our baskets ;-)
or age for that matter :lol:
