The beginning

Right, World Cup time. Meaning time to get off my lazy ass and actually start blogging. Will only last till the semis anyway.

Yes, I did just say that. I have done much soul searching during my absence and have realized that sometimes being negative actually attracts negative results. And when you support Bangladesh and South Africa, even positive thinking, brings negative results. Put the two together and you have two negatives cancelling each other out to bring a big, yellow, positive smiley face. Much like AB's hair (I swear it knows how to smile).

So here we go, a new beginning for the blog with the same old but slightly modified negativity and a big bag of love for Bangladesh and South Africa. It only makes sense that I put a video of Bangladesh's victory against Kenya in the ICC trophy, which allowed them to play their first ever World Cup (where we beat Pakistan...muhahaha). I think I mentioned it somewhere before and as you can see, I got the details quite wrong. The six I recall being hit was earlier in the over and although it WAS our bowler who made the winning runs, it came off a single- the most famous single in the history of Bangladesh cricket. Yes, it is that dramatic. See it for yourself.

P.s- the video quality is shit. What did you expect? This was before Paris Hilton showed us what you can do with a camera.

Yippee! :D

I started feeling a little bored writing about the Saffers almost entirely alone, so I hope you're serious about blogging in the WC. And blogging CONSISTENTLY. :)

As for my stance before the WC, I'm trying to be neither optimistic nor pessimistic. It might work.

Hi there,

We have recently set up Cricket Ireland TV on youtube. See here - www.youtube.com/cricketirelandtv & www.irishcricket.org . The sole aim of the project is just to raise awareness and support for the great sport of cricket here in Ireland & around the cricketing World. There is a nice mix of viral skills videos, player interviews, tour diaries & celebs backing our boys in green.

I am wondering if you may be interested in doing a piece on your blog ahead of Ireland's first game in the world cup on Friday. If you'd like to embed any of the videos onto your site that would be great as well.

If you need any further information or help with emdedding please don't hesistate to contact me.

Kind Regards

Andrew Leonard
