The Ashes: Random thoughts 3

-Any team that gives Broad 5 wickets and Swann 2 wicket maidens should go flush themselves down the toilet

-Then again, Broad's bowling coach was once Allan Donald and he is brilliant

-There are far too many wrong umpiring decisions in this series. The umpires really need to take their job more seriously.

-One of these days, Ricky will bite his fingers off, which will end his career. Clarke will then take over and plummet Australia to 10th position. Moral of the story: Ricky, stop biting your germ-infested nails.

-Zulu is coming back to CSA!!! Oh, is this not Ashes related? It's still far more interesting than this lackluster game being stretched by lucky tail-enders and mediocre bowling.

Australia should have hidden his magic batting skivvy. This would have of course caused him to go out for a duck in every innings, and since the English commentators are so keen for him to be the next all-rounder, his bowling would have been crap due to lack of confidence.

Yes, that was really a long winded way to laugh at his skivvy. Sue me

Richie, I wasn't sure what a skivvy was so when I looked it up I also bumped into this definition:
a female servant, esp. a chambermaid.

Skivvy is officially me favourite new word.
