The Ashes have been returned
« on: December 18, 2017, 03:30:57 am »
Australia is 3-0 in the Ashes and unassailable.

The Poms will be dejected.  ;D

Of note is that the best commentary by far has been by Cate McGregor for the ABC in Australia.

Well done Cate!!

As far as I can tell, Cindy says Australia has elected a new Pope, and Liz is chuffed about it.  ;D

I'm taking the higher moral ground.

In fact the only cricket match I've been to was a one-day international at Headingly between Oz and England... If I recall.. We won

Lol, I haven't watched Cricket in several years, maybe closer to a decade, but I'm really not surprised. Last I heard the England test team were rubbish. Couldn't bat their way out of a paper bag. Not to take anything away from the Aussie team. I'm sure it was a well-fought trouncing.

The United States and Great Britain are two countries separated by a common language. Looks like we have to add Australia to the list.  ;D

So you won at cricket (for now). We' ll beat you at rugby & we've always beat you at beer making. Fosters & Castlemaine should only be used for killing slugs

I'll concede you point about the beer here and I personally would not be that cruel to slugs as to use it to kill them, I am sure there are far more humane ways to do it

Definitely agree about the beer. I always thought it was made specifically to export to the UK. Cruel I know but funny in a way.

You all do know that the reason the rest of the universe thinks we are just a bumch of primitive apes and ignores us is because cricket is played on this planet?

According to Douglas Adams anyway.

I can only repeat what I have heard from others about beer as I never have consumed alcohol however Fosters is sold in the United States. We produce it in the United State and have for a long time. When I visited the Tumwater Washington brewery, their primary product was Millers however they produce a couple of dozen products and Fosters was included in the mix. Somebody  liked it enough for them to continue brewing it.
