    Been around years. My little kids do it when we play sport in the garden. A dance move that migrated into the NFL a long time ago. As good as it was to see England win, it was a little embarassing watching them do something that is already so dated.

    EDIT- 2003 in the NFL

    Meh, not dated if your not a Yank, and most of us aren't

    I hadn't seen it before.

    You need to get out more

    It is a little cringe worthy when it is claimed that Collingwood made it up

    Fair enough if people have not seen it before but watching it is like hearing people make "phone a friend" or "you are the weakest link" jokes.

    Anyway, great win. Hopefully do the business properly with a win in Sydney.

    Hmm, Swann that said that, he's not really to be taken seriously, but see your point.

    Agree about Sydney, I'm a little off-kilter on this forum I think. People are opening the Champagne, and I just think the job is half done. I'd of taken the draw at the start of the Ashes to retain, but I'd feel a bit down if we lost the last match. Winning in Oz is no mean thing, a number of the players will never get another chance, and who knows it may be the best chance for all the players.

    I hope they still remain focused and I hope they didn't celebrate too much. Grind them into the earth boys, just as they've been doing to the world of cricket for decades.

    Seahawks' TD celebration could draw flags this season
    Thought Swann just said Colly had brought it into the dressing room, not made it up. Cbf to re-watch the diary though so could just be mis-remembering.

    I think it's great that they're doing it if the fans want them to, it's a nice bit of fun.

    I had never seen the Sprinkler Dance before and think Swanny's resurrection of the dance is hilarious. The team all doing it at the G after the win is, imo, just cool to see. (Swanny's 5th Ashes Video Diary contains clips from lots of English cricket fans of all ages doing the dance. It's well worth a look.)

    Nice work. Favourite picture is the one of Prior's pull shot, great timing.

    (on the pic and the shot)
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Went along on Day 3, was a good day's cricket, although difficult scoring in the afternoon.

    Bresnan was a great selection. England bowled the best it did throughout the series, mainly because the pressure was maintained by Bresnan. Whilst Finn took wickets, he bowled some boundary balls that let the likes of Hussey get their feet moving and confidence up; Bresnan kept the pressure on beautifully and never gave us suckers an even break.

    Well done to Sids for showing some genuine fight.

    Got to see how they do elsewhere.
    To be fair, Ishant came out of the series with an ordinary average. The Pom quicks have taken wickets.

    The MCC Members, they don't "participate" in the wave because they are too stuffy for the "riff raff". That's what the public would say. Think it adds a bit of character, TBH.

    Loved hearing Swanneh give a shout out to St. James' Park on Channel 9. No way the Barmy Army make as much noise as '75,000' geordies, as he put it, and not sure our Australian viewers will get that reference, though.
