See 99's latest post

My Seiko data base says; "A notional trophy awarded for a cricket test match series between England & Australia".

This Ashes series was the first time that I've seen cricket on TV and not been bored rigid.

It was good stuff, and it's the first time England have won since 1987 apparently! England winning was long overdue!

Glad that you, as a Scot, appreciated what we sassenachs got a kick out of, like you, to me watching cricket is boring, I prefer cricket to football, never played it, only as a school kid, a knock-about in a field with some mates, but this year was different, there wasn't a car on the roads around where I live, they must have all been watching, in nearby towns, some managements let staff watch it on plasma TV all afternoon, I was mowing the lawns, & kept popping in, to have a look, missing the final seconds by about a minute, I was gutted as they say, but I sat down & watched the closing ceremony.
