The End

Ok. NWG has calmed.

She's returned to her normal routine without going to the Oval everyday.

There's no more speculation in the papers of will/they won't they.

There's no more Test cricket this summer for England.

Only the ODIs and the Twenty20 games to go.

Which is quite sad.

But the most disappointing thing of the whole week was the lack of drunken English cricketers post-celebration, stumbling here, there and everywhere, unable to pronounce their name, unable to walk in a straight line. Just generally unable to do anything.

Sid - you can have the ODI series. Given England's performance against Ireland today, it wont' be that hard....

D- thanks for the link. NWG will take a look.

If they cannot get falling down drunk and generally out of their heads when they win the Ashes - when can they?

I had a drink or two in the sun on their behalf

so did NWG. Actually she started on Saturday, but that was due to nerves.
