The perception here is that youíre enjoying your time out there, especially with crazes like the sprinkler danceÖ
Weíve heard a lot of people have seen that. We had a practice match in Adelaide and I said, ďIf we win, Iím going out tonight and Iím doing the sprinkler dance.Ē Someone asked what it was and it just took off from there. But I didnít invent it, itís something that I saw years ago out in Burnley.
The dance, ironically invented around the BBQs of Australia in the 1980s, involves holding an arm out and imitating the jaunty rotation of a garden sprinkler.
The move originated in the 1980s but was created during the summer of 1978 by an unnamed high school male adolescent who lived in University Park, TX. This was during the disco days of Saturday Night Fever and "The Bump". He saw some very big sprinklers on the grounds of the University Park pool and was intrigued at the inordinate amount of water they propelled. It has been shown in the movies: House Party and A Night at the Roxbury
Australia Loses The Ashes And Boxing Day Test
A rare sane piece on the defeat in Australian media..
Seriously I hate this about Australian culture..they just cannot be open minded and mature and acknowledge that the other side played better.. No they have to win everything.. Its no longer a sport with that attitude
"This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers."
Indeed. As far as I know no one in our cricket team has cheated, bribed, been abusive in public, harassed, raped or assaulted anyone.

Agree that no-one died but articles criticising people for taking sport seriously in this country are pretty boring too. What happened to 'to each their own'? Just as odious to go after the manic sport types.
Fairfax v News Corp.....another great rivalry
We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

Check out this awesome e-fed:
Thought the sprinkler was kind of funny. Went out on the piss last night and there were literally thousands of poms drinking everywhere. Gave a bit of lip to a group of English blokes in a pub and they all responded by doing a group sprinkler.
I also went to the Barmy Army sponsored pub for a while just to check it out. The reduced cost of beer didn't make up for the constant chanting.
