    childhood madness?

    after the 1992 world cup, a friend of mine came into posession of a match ball. not long after we played cricket with it in his backyard. was this disrespectful? i'm sure to be honest

    Yeah ... that was very smart ... You could have made some serious cash on E-bay .... there goes your chance to make some easy cash and have a comfortable life (OK a comfortable week maybe) ,and you just blew it.

    It's bad enough to have these threads in OT.

    Its just a ball....makes more sense to use it than worship it.
    FYI, i used to wear my baseball cap, signed by Tendulkar, McGrath, Viv, Agassi and Roberto Baggio 4 days every week for tennis.......for afterall,its a CAP!

    A mate of mine uses a collector's item for his bat. Its a Slazenger and has something to do with Bradman. Anyway, he has been using it for a long time and says that its a perfectly good bat - still, I wouldn't go around using a bat like that.
