england have won the second game of the ashes series. they are one nil up and three to play, they just have to win one more game and they retain the ashes.
don't feel at all elated by the win. not because i don't like cricket (i don't: it is a dull sport - my rule on sport is that if it involves a bat, racket, stick or some other implement to hit or strike a ball then invariably the game is dull). i don't feel elated because australian cricket if pretty well ... i wouldn't give a XXXX for it (see how clever i am).
beating them is like playing a blind man at noughts and crosses.
still nice to wipe the grins of their smug faces.
