    Re: The Ashes

    Sad to say that I really can't bear cricket, and have absolutely no interest in whether England or Australia win. Just don't get it! Possibly a north of the Border thing...... I have a passing interest in quite a few sports apart from tennis (and quite a bit more than passing interest in football), but cricket just turns me right off and I can't bear the thought of having to listen to updates on every news bulletin for what will feel like weeks and weeks and weeks. Possibly it does go on for weeks? Sorry..... just my own personal opinion, quite understand that lots of people will be totally enthralled. There will be lots of cricket fans who feel the same about tennis!

    Lots of people north of the border are cricket fans, and for the vast majority of us it's the only sport we'll support England at!

    I'm sure there are. I've met a couple of them, used to work with one who was totally into it - playing, spectating, coaching. Still couldn't convert me. Don't get me wrong, I'd be pleased for England and their fans if they won. But I can't get excited about it.

    Well, last Sunday I was a nervous wreck watching Andy and today was just the same watching the total creep up and the runs needed for the Aussies to win gradually going down!!. What a nail-biting finish to an extraordinary, exciting Test Match. Well done the England boys and especially Jimmy Anderson.
