    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    Eh! Ind Pak match for the first time in over a decade, Tendulkar played best innings of his life. Every session seems to go one way and reverse back in the next session. One of the greatest test matches ever played and in the context of - when, where- that is as good as it gets.

    Headingly - tactical vote, slightly prefer Adelaide but think both are better than Bridgetown by a considerable margin

    If Sachin had got India over the line I'd probably feel differently about it, but it looks like they collapsed in a heap with the line in sight when he went.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli

    Doesn't that make it all the more memorable though?

    Also Bridgetown for this current round.

    What does that have to do with how great the match was? The collapse was due to Saqlain bowling spin as well as anyone ever has.
    Sachin's epic hundred, Saqlain's brilliance, Wasim bowling pretty much the ball of the century to get Dravid, Afridi's amazing hundred, each session swinging the other team's way like a pendulum, a terrible collapse to finish it all off and the crowd actually applauding the Pakistan team at the end... its got more epic ingredients than most test matches in this battle to be honest

    All such amazing games. Tough one but I guess Kolkata deserves a finals spot.
