It is now into winter where I am right now, outside the sun is shining-hardly any clouds however the wind chill factor from that breeze from the south is a stark reminder to wear your winter woolies.
Today's Sydney Daily Telegraph was very sparing in the sports dept, likewise was fox tel in the main news, a mention about thugby that was yer lot mate, maybe I thought if I search the hardly read interior pages where the bad news is tucked away between the likes of 'Hair Loss' and 'Ten percent discount on a treatment for Hemorrhoids' adverts where only few dare venture, I may find the embarrassing truth in small print, No not a thing about the supremo's of the Cricket world , the masters the top dogs, the very so called Best players the world has to offer thrashed in two games and out of the tournament,(That will teach them to be up themselves and too cocky.

Andrew (Roy) Symonds. Born in Birmingham, England, in 1975, he came to Australia aged one with his adoptive parents. He has scored more than 14,000 runs in first-class cricket since 1994. Last week he was sent home in disgrace from England to Brisbane Australia after the latest of his drinking transgressions.
Roy would have been more suited to a different era, maybe two decades back when the likes of Lillee, Thompson and Doug Walters enjoyed a fag and a beer in the dressing room while playing cards before going in to bat.

Aussies. "Have a thoughtful day. Vest.
