"Your averages, captain, coaches and players can probably survive incompetence over a relatively short series, so if youíre going to be rubbish, make sure itís against Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand or someone."
Yeah, made him look like a schoolboy in the Lions game.
Free beer for every Aussie if Ashes are won - sponsor
SYDNEY, Nov 16 (Reuters) - An Australian team sponsor has pledged to buy a beer for every adult in the country should the home side beat England in the upcoming Ashes series.
Under the "Shout the nation" commitment, if Australia win back the Ashes from England over the next two months, free coupons for Victoria Bitter (VB) will be printed in five newspapers at the conclusion of the final test on Jan. 8.
Buying a bottle of VB for some 13 million adult Australians would cost nearly $20 million at retail prices, although the brewer has chosen the first series in Australia for many years where England are thought to have a decent chance of victory.
"We're going to buy the biggest round in Australian history," VB's Craig Maclean said at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on Tuesday.
"VB is urging all Aussies to get behind the team as they fight to reclaim Aussie pride and what's rightfully ours -- the Ashes."
Keep Your Feet on The Ground,Keep Reaching for The Stars!
Pretty smart marketing gesture that's going to cost them nothing.
Also, props to Burgey for his line about Cook.

RIP Craigos. A true CW legend. You will be missed.
I'll make my one cricket related post for the year.
And I'm done. Seeya.
He's Martyn. You don't think anyone else would be stupid enough to tip 5-0 do you?
