mistletoe: (Angelus soul)
Ha! I remind you of my ranty mcrant of August 04, 2008 Today, Mr Pietersen resigned as England captain,Peter Moores the coach was sacked and Andrew Strauss named as captain to tour the West Indies. Did I not warn of this? Did I not say his ego would find him out? Well I was right. He didn't get his way about who was picked to tour, he gave an ultimatum and his bluff was called. So he has cost himself the captaincy and the coach his job. Yet again, the uncanny sports oracle has struck.

In other news the bitter weather has resulted in me catching a chill: dry throat, chapped lips and nausea. Wheeeee!

I offer you a lesson in refusal to go down without a fight in the sports arena that may smack of hyperbole to most, but gives me a kick.

I have just given a 5 minute standing ovation in my living room to a shot I witnessed via television that went for 6 over the bowler's head and restored some North East pride to the England team.

Ladies and gentlemen I give you former pupil, Sunderland supporter and all-round battler Paul Collingwood.

In his first century since June 2007 Colly has managed to score more runs off 133 balls than he has managed in all of his other innings put together this season. And that was after he dropped a catch and was fighting for his Test match career. A man of dogged determination, few would have reacted in the way that Paul has done this afternoon.

I salute you.

While the rest of the country is glued to the masochistic horror thrilling musical delight of the Eurovision Song Contest I am gripped by the West Indies pasting Australia. Chanderpaul, who should be playing for Durham again this season, got knocked out by a low bouncer and still scored a century. They finished 143 runs behind on first innings but are currently ripping through the Aussie top order who are 12 for 4. Amazing stuff. I hope they can keep it up as it's brilliantly exciting. Wish England, who are floundering against New Zealand, could bowl like this. Damn. They've gone off for bad light. 17 - 4

Hull City were promoted in the play offs. I don't believe it. Will they get more points than the record low of Derby County this year? Seems unlikely as their scorer today is 39 years old.

Come on Doncaster Rovers. Leeds must not pass tomorrow.
