    Nuff said.
    None of them have any relevance to cricsim though. All this football **** instead.

    Delete football.

    It'll be 4-0 by then so the English fans will be bored of watching us cruise to 3 day victory after 3 day victory.

    It's a thought mate, but would struggle when I have to go in work the day after the Test. Providing I don't find out the score, when I watch it in the day it's like watching it live anyway.

    What is everyone else in the non-evil part of the world planning to do RE staying up etc?

    ... well...i shall be watching the second test...as i shall be on a break from work,so this makes it slighlty easier...and..i guess champagne and colin the caterpillar sweets will help keep me up for the night time play.. and i shall then stay in bed and sleep in the morning...to help me recover for the next nights play.... and it will be all over for Australia come the Sunday, i expect we are that good ..
    And I recall my fall from grace, another time another place..

    Here is my plan...

    Record the entire live coverage throughout the night... then watch through the day...

    Just tell all cricketing friends not to text you... dont watch the news and change cricinfo or bbc or whatever else your homepage is...

    Downside is... you cant bet on it in-play

    Yeah, that never works. Every time Iíve tried recording a sporting event to watch later, someone/something invariably spoils it for me. If you venture outside, there is a high chance that someone will be talking about the result and it will be within earshot. Or you would be browsing something online or watching a TV show that has absolutely nothing to do with sports and it will make a reference to it. Itís like the Sports Gods are angry if you donít watch the event live.

    To be fair though, if he's kipping overnight then watching it straight away it won't be too difficult to watch it without finding out the score.

    Personally I'm seriously considering getting Sky because of the Ashes, just need to work out the costings.

    Yeah if I get it, it'll probably be HD - issue is the multiroom option, leaning towards going with that as well and an early Xmas present for the family!
