    I bet McGrath is glad he doesn't live in the same continent as you.

    And Kumble's just a spinner - heaven help Kapil Dev if he'd still been playing in Manan's day.

    Adding on to this, whenever you go past a cricket game being played, you turn around in your seat if you have to just to make sure you see at least one ball bowled.

    Now why would you say something as hurtful as that?

    You know you’re obsessed with Marto when you have over twenty video tapes of his innings (these also include news report and even…um…the odd tv commercial) and over 20 cassette tapes of cricket commentary you taped off the radio and you have listened to them so much the tapes are starting to wear thin and when one recorder did chew up the cassette you frantically unscrewed it, laboriously threaded it back on and breathed a huuuuge sigh of relief that it was still working. In fact some cassettes you’ve listened to so much you know exactly what Tim Lane’s going to say next and what Barry Richards will say after that. Added to this you collect all newspaper clippings with any reference to marto so you have scrap book upon scrap book of marto articles. You also always used to Google news search him so you have hundreds of computer files containing online marto articles from overseas newspapers, websites etc. Marto’s retired now. He’s no longer in the news. I’m in a better place (Should I have just admitted all that???)

    Lol! I know people who have done that for Nathan Astle and I nearly started doing that but thankfully I got snapped out of it.

    From Burr: "(Should I have just admitted all that???)"

    Probably not. I'm nowhere near your level.

    You know you're obsessed when:

    You work out your whole sleeping schedule around the 2007 World Cup (I'm in Japan). Come home from work at 4.30. Shower, sleep until 10.00, watch the match, go to work, come home from work at 4.30....

    After one month of this I was a walking zombie. The fact that the tournament sucked didn't help either.
