    I shook hands with the great All Black coach Fred Allen outside the Carisbrook terrace toilets. I bet he was glad he was wearing gloves.

    How cool would it have been to have a game of backyard Cricket with them?!
    that would have been awesome.. but they would be too serious and would want to continue their winning streak..

    haha good call! I can so imagine it... Adam bowling off like a 4-pace run-up and Gilly/Hayden full padded up smacking him everywhere. And then Hayden is somehow run-out and Adam asks "Can you send in Pidge at three, it`d be really fun!" And Punter comes in at Three and says "What is that, a joke? Annhilation!"

    Aminul Islam I've met before too. He plays district cricket near me. Still a fine batsman.

    I processed Billie Joe Armstrong's incoming passenger card today at work.
