Australia has been battling England in cricket for, I don’t know, maybe 150 years. Every other year they play a series of matches to determine who will win The Ashes trophy. We’ve been trying to figure out how to watch the games here in America. Jamie, the family tech expert, finally figured it all out last night just as the first match was about to begin.
One of the world’s best players is England’s Joe Root. It cannot be disputed that he has the best uniform number in the history of sports.
Root 66. Funny boy.
UPDATE: The boys from Oz just destroyed the bloody Brits in a very lopsided game. One down, four to go. Match #2 coming up next Wednesday.
UPDATE #2: Game number two was even more lopsided. It was downright embarrassing for the bloody Limey bastards.
UPDATE #3: Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse for the English, along came game number three. It’s hard to imagine a more one-sided game. The Ashes is a five match series, so the Aussies have retained the treasured trophy by winning the first three games. With a little luck, the English team will suffer two more humiliating defeats.
