    Guess what? I watched a few overs tonight.
    Guess what? I found the gym a far more appetising proposition.
    Guess what? I got back and found it'd been a pretty tight finish.
    Guess what? I didn't remotely regret not watching.














    I'm really aiming for a Jimmy here.

    A Society member now, then, eh?

    Nah, wasn't a loss to me, I didn't regret it at all. (Yes, aware of the irony in using that smiley in response to you)

    no, I am not a Society member.

    Its just a shame you have shut 2020 out becuase you think you should do. Some of the batting today was superb to watch. Samuels 6's were a real pleasure to watch

    No, it was a pleasure to you to watch. I don't remotely enjoy games that are monotonous like that. I want to see a match which embraces both attack and defence. Twenty20 rarely does that.

    Anyway, it's not like I've not said this 100 times before, really. I'll say it again as long as anyone asks me to but...

    but you have hardly watched any of the games, how do you know that they are monotonous????

    And no, I am not a member of the Society

    I've watched enough, and I've read scorecards. I know what I like and what I don't like.

    In any case, there's an amount of pre-empting you can do. You can usually guess that Red Leicester is going to taste different to Strong Cheddar even before tasting it.

    Only way to avoid that's to delete your posts in here, TBH.

    But you don't know whether it is going to taste better though do you..and even if you don't like it, its always good to give something a real go, and then make a judgement.

    I suspect,however, that you in fact have watched a lot more Twenty20 than you, as a 2020phobe, would ever like to admit

    So be it, whether I am in this Society or not really is of no concern to me

    So maybe I can be a semi-member

    Would like to change my sentiments and align my position to being a Twenty/20 fan. Unfortunately having posted in this thread, it apparently makes me a life time member.
    Would like to make it known my protest to such a commitment.
