    What did you recieve for x-mas?

    Me:

    Lance Armstrong's book Every second Counts
    Caught by Simon Wilde (who writes for the Sunday Times as a cricket writer). It has Hansie Cronje on the front cover.
    A book on the history of rugby matches between NZ and Australia.
    A digital camera
    A flashlight
    A couple of DVD's
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi, a true legend of CW

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Gave that to a mate this year.

    Anyway:

    CDs (Nick Drake, Doves, couple of old Sting records + a free choice)
    Books (mostly Norwegian, though I did get an atlas of world history which looks interesting)
    Hard cash (about US$550)
    Some sweaters

    Sadly, no Cricket 2004...better go to the shops and ask whether they can order it for me...hate living in stupid cricket-ignorant Norway :!(

    About a year ago - I found it embarrassing that there were sports played around the world that I didn't know how to read the results - then I found cricinfo.com and was hooked on the sport.
