    I think it's great that they're doing it if the fans want them to, it's a nice bit of fun.
    No, your right in the video diary, Swanny said Colly had showed him it, but he didn't know where he got it from.

    It was someone a long time ago mate, possibly the 70's or 80's. These blokes have just borrowed it.

    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.
    Haha, yeah I agree. It can be seen occasionally on dance floors etc in Oz when people are mucking around.

    Has been around for a long, long time.

    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 Telegraph

    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.

    Wiki

    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

    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.

    Haddin is bloody good, both as a bat and as a keeper.. Don't understand all the fuss about him not cutting it at all, tbh..

    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.

    No I disagree with that part too.. I take sports, well cricket to be precise very seriously too but I can also handle defeats. And I thing calling one Ashes defeat in Australia in 24 years a disgrace is itself a disgrace. And it is not over yet...it could very well be 2-2. That exaggeration in the media is what I am criticising.

    lol.. Marcuss is arguing that stats are the best way to judge players over on another thread, isn't he?
