Cricket By The Beach

It was a stinking hot day in Melbourne today, but I got out an enjoyed a bit of the sun in the morning hours. After the technician left my house (hopefully all my Internet problems are over now), I headed out to Gordon’s house.

Agent Orange Cricket Match Report

It has taken  me a few days to get around to writing this entry, mainly because it was such a depressing match. I really thought we had improved to be a lot better than this, maybe we just had an off night, but even so.
