Re: The Cricket Thread

Has Matthew wade suddenly turned in to a half decent cricketer? Or do people.just want to hear the "nice one gary" again? Seriously?

Or just do another super over Yea it's not like they are going to go through 10 tied super overs, you'll get a winner in the first 2 or 3 max.

Did the gold coast half this morning, finished in dead on 1hr 27mins, couldn't get over the amount of runners! My first km is usually my quickest but it was about 40 seconds slower than the other 20 trying to get through the crowd, great event though. Looking forward to a few beers now!
