Cricket, Poker, Summer… Awesome

Haven’t done a blog in the while so just thought I’d do one about random life happenings. So Rohan (RaiderDuck) came down from Canberra on Boxing Day and I picked him up at the airport and then we headed straight to the MCG for the first day of the Boxing Day test match between Australia and South Africa. The first day’s play only really had one highlight and that was the Ricky Ponting century, apart […]

Cricket Day 2: Hampton Central vs. Washington Park

What a strange and crazy day it was yesterday. We started the day needing to chase down 206 for the win, I came in at about 1/26 after Joe got out.

Cricket Day 1: Hampton Central vs. Omega

We won the toss and elected to field on a pretty mild day. The ground was the smallest one we have played on all year and in the first over and mistimed edge floated for six, from there it was evident it was going to be a tough day in the field. Ned took a wicket relatively early on, but by the time I came on to bowl it was 1 for 140. I only […]
