    No one is forcing you to take part in it.

    On second thoughts, this thread really is ridiculous now. Last I checked there were donkeys, pigeons and cats all over the place.

    By that time, I will have emotionally broken him, so it won't matter.

    SS, I have a feeling your son will be just like you and he'll end up owning your ass.
    Here's to his becoming a fast bowler and pissing the hell out of you.

    Several reasons why that won't happen:

    A) He is Indian, therefore he won't be able to bowl pace all that well.
    B) I'm his father, so he won't be all that athletic or tall
    C) I won't be able to stop laughing at him or stop myself from taunting him while he is growing up trying to bowl fast, so it will ruin his confidence

    So his best chance would be if my wife has an affair with Curtly Ambrose or something.

    Which by the way, I would fully endorse if it means India can finally get a non-crap fast bowler. I'd even pay for her plane ticket and hotel fees for the trip to the west indies.

    Now that's commitment.

    I hope you realize that the Ambrose child would just end up playing for the West Indies.
    You'd lose your wife to an old black man without getting anything in return.

    Now that's pathetic.

    Nah, I'd steal him when he's born (if my wife is not willing) and move to India.

    Sounds good. You can bring him over to my pace academy.
    I'll polish him up before he becomes the Indian McGrath (not that we won't already have one by then).

    Oh man, I really hope thats not true, because I hold Kapil Dev as one of my heroes.
    ss, u really need to be an Indian who lives in India to understand what it means for normal people here when you kill a living thing. I suppose there is a bit of hypocrisy here in that u probably won't expect Kapil to feel this way if he were to kill a mosquito or an ant (they are living things too), but you hit a stroke and it kills a beautiful bird, most normal human beings will be shaken up by it.


    And secondly, I have been corrected by my uncle regarding this. Being shaken up wasn't the only reason Kapil asked for some water. According to Indian tradition, you tend to take a shower to cleanse yourself of the sin if you happen to kill a living thing and it seems Kapil wanted to just pour a bottle of water over his head for that too. Anyways, AB was a major jerk that day and I still hate him for it.


    And about Ponting, Nnanden, I just used that example to show that he is a tool. But I guess everyone around here knows it anyways. So we will leave it at that.

    And the reason I brought it up now is that Harmison has said that it is his one regret from the last Ashes in a recent interview.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.
