Wicky for Cricky

In a strange turn of events it seems that the Scottish are starting to grow fond of our most English of English sports - cricket. I think the excitment of this years Ashes has meant that Scots who would dare not show support for England under normal circumstances are ready to join the Barmy Army. Although there are still many who would rather see their family slaughtered than so much as think about wearing the three lions. This strange occurance was highlighted in a Sunday Times article this weekend, which probably wasn't reproduced down south so here it is. This Thursday Scotlands cricketers get to show their talents in a one day friendly against the Aussies, which I'm sure wont be a one sided affair.

My only other comment about the cricket at the moment is WWWhhhhhhhhyyyyyyyyyyy! We had the chance to make it 2-1 god damn it! Bloody Ponting, hhrrruuummmpppphhh. Enough expert analysis of the third test. Roll on Trent Bridge.
