    Was she there when you got back?

    Haha, she was waiting in the car I told her on the phone I'll be right out. Kumble was on 93*. I took my time 'putting my clothes on' even though I was ready before she got there. Later I told her what really happened and that I could always see her but Kumble will never make a century again. She just laughed.
    RIP Craigos

    You Know you are obsessed with cricket when you watch baseball, and start thinking where Mid-on and Mid-off should be, and also notice how the fast bowler doesnt have a slip in place.

    When you have mini cricket matches behind the bar you work part time at, using a screwed up piece of paper and a plastic bottle.

    Stupid and Obsessive:

    Obsessive: When every time someone phones you start practising your bowling with your free hand. Stupid: You have managed to smash the light bulb doing this 5 times in the last couple of months.

    Edit

    Not smash exactly just hitting the shade hard enough for the bulb to stop working.

    I don't know about obsessive, but I did force myself out of bed at 4.30 am on a winter morning a couple of years ago to see if India's openers could beat the world record Test opening partnership (they didn't). I kept pretty quiet about that.

    I'm not tall enough to do that...so just clip the lampshade. Hurts enough though.
