When Did This Happen?

At some point in the last 100 years a feud has been battling on. In the forests, in the mountains, in the sea and, obviously, on the beaches. There are no soldiers. There are no weapons. It is a war of words.

And NWG has no idea why it started (isn't that always the way?).

Shane Warne, you know, that podgy guy who could spin a ball a little bit, has been saying some strange and mean things about Paul Collingwood, the ginger one.

Shane Warne said about Collingwood's captaincy during the Twenty20 World Cup:

"He was too busy trying to drive his Aston Martin and fly around in helicopters."

NWG isn't sure what Warne was trying to say. Is Collingwood a secret billionaire, jetting from place to place (surely cricketers aren't paid that much, are they?)?

Has Colly said something to annoy Warne in the past?

Is Warne starting the Ashes war of words?

Someone please tell NWG.

Warne always has to be in the limelight, else he will self-combust. Since he is not playing, I don't think any of the English players will respond.

There is no Shane Warne. He is just another of John Buchanan's 4th dimension theories.

Goodcricketwicket - NWG wishes this were true. Unfortunately she knows he does exist as he keeps on making appearances on the Sky ads for the cricket. When will England rid themselves of him?

Shane Warne is just bitter- the bitterness stems from his jealously of Collingwood receiving a MBE after the 2005 Ashes, which all boils down to the fact Shane Warne secretly wishes he was actually english and therefore had the opportunity to meet the Queen at some point as well.

LongOff beat me to saying it. olly has an MBE while Warnie doesn't. I do hope Warnie won't descend to cheap jibes in the commentary box this summer. Sky have managed to keep Bob Willis hidden a fair bit this summer.

If Michael Vaughan retires tomorrow he might well be coming into the Sky commentary box...

They have to do something to liven it up since they're playing for something which was in effect made up.

Warne thought Vaughan should have been in the squad instead of Ravi. That says it all about this illegal substance taking, match fixing womaniser.

But the English press still go and kiss his behind. How strange.

Brat said...

Clearly, Colly turned Warne down when he propositioned him.

Only reasonable explanation. Other than, perhaps, Warne is just a douche.

The Nightwatchgirl said...

NWG thinks Warne was a great cricketer. But he can't just go and be horrible about English players. It's not fair. Is Warne trying to over-compensate for something?
