    Also, can someone change it so that my name appears as Jack "McNamara" rather than Mcnamara?

    Harmison and Hughes never played in the same match.
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    Harmy was all over him in the warm-up games.

    Free beer

    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."

    Pretty smart marketing gesture that's going to cost them nothing.

    Also, props to Burgey for his line about Cook.

    Ferguson can get lazy with his feet, he doesn't have the balance of a Damien Martyn but at times employs similarly minimal footwork, especially playing forward.
    You heard it here first.

    He's Martyn. You don't think anyone else would be stupid enough to tip 5-0 do you?
