Today: A Girls Guide to the Ashes

28 Dec

The Ashes. The time of year when most blokes will claim to have man-flu, take time off work to recouperate and then come back after 5 days stating all they could do was stay in bed and “force themselves” to watch the only thing on tv.

This plan works wonders when they are playing in the Northern Hemisphere. However this time it was played in Oz. Which meant all you had to do was come into work very tired.

Girls, hopefully you have now linked that the Ashes is ENGLAND v AUSTRALIA.

Mainly for pride, but mostly for the ASHES.

The glorious ashes.

The Ashes are as literal as their name suggests. They are the burnt Bails (the two bits of wood on top of the 3 bits stood up) Burnt to commemorate the death of English Cricket after Australia beat England for the first time in 1882. Bit Dramatic don’t ya think?

Do not fret!

The Ashes are a series of 5 test matches. Each one lasting up to 5 days. One team  throws the ball at the other and tries to knock the wickets over, bowl it off their leg pad (if it’s in line with the wicket) or catch it in dramatic style.

Then the teams swap when everybody has suffered their fate.

The winning team is the one who gets the most runs without losing lots of wickets.


Good. Now ladies here is some of the England Team:


tight white trousers boys?


Currently England are doing very well to retain (and hopefully win back) these ashes. Ricky Ponting the Australian Captain is currently in teenager mode. ie, throwing a massive tantrum. He got fined 40% of his fee because he argued with the umpires.

So we poms are beating the leaders in Cricket. in Australia. In mencing style.

So girls. How about you call in sick? Trust me. They are still attractive with clothes on too…
