Extra Photos From Sunday (woo)




These are a small selection from the weekend. NWG couldn't resist the photo showing the greatest session of England cricket she had ever seen.

And yes, before you ask, that is NWG. Again. In her free t-shirt. She didn't go to the ground wearing that. Just to be clear.

Those are some big forearms. I'm sorry I ever messed with you Nightmare, sorry. And I was right about the rugby shoulders wasn't I?

Don't say it was a camera trick.

About the t-shirt, if you didn't go to the ground wearing it, why would you put it on just for the photo?

The urn looks a bit pathetic in Freddie's hands. Broad's is much bigger ;)

Stani- ever heard of the saying, if you've got nothing nice to say, don't say anything? NWG thinks you should sit somewhere quiet and think about it.

Rob - in the case of the Ashes, size is irrelevant.

Oh, the pain the pain!! Great t-shirt btw - what would they have done with them had Australia made history? It doesn't matter, I guess ...sob!!

Will you be looking to go to Australia? Give me some tips on getting ticets, would you? I never have any luck with it ...

Rob said...

Forgot to say - that team photo is fantastic. I take lots of pics and know how tricky that sort of shot can be. My wife looked at it and said "what are those footballers doing in the background"

Sid - The t-shirt was being handed out by n-power, so they may have had some Australia victory t-shirts as back-up - we'll never know now.

NWG would love love love to go to Australia for the next Ashes, where she will most likely be feeling the pain you're feeling right now...

Rob- NWG is very pleased that you liked her photo (unlike some she won't mention). It was pretty tricky as she was just holding the camera up above people's heads and pointing in the right direction. It was only luck that a few came out good.

Stani Army said...

Yes, only if there was a similar saying about people who write: 'if you've got nothing nice to write...'

N'ers, it's me, I was only joking. You don't really want me to be nice do you? Fine.

I'm glad England won. Apart from Stuart Clark, the others Aussie players are ****s. Always taking the moral high ground but never demonstrating it by their actions. Why they still think theyre the best in the world the Lord only knows. About time they were brought back down to earth.

Those are lovely arms by the way, lovely.

P.S, I'm not liking Hoggard, not now, not ever

Stani Army said...

...and i'm keeping 'nightmaregirl' too,it was genius and I can't be bothered to think of a nice version... not that this was mean.

Nice piece by peter roebuck on cricinfo

NWG is in shock.

Stani had some nice things to say.

Hurray.

p.s. Matthew Hoggard rules all. England would have won the Ashes 5-0 if he had been in the team.

Fact.

Stani Army said...

5-0? So he would have been in charge of the weather too? Some skills for a fat bloke.

You're gonna make me bad again if you carry on liking him, and you know me, when I'm bad, I'm very bad. When I'm good I'm enough good...or something like that.

Stani Army said...

...lovely arms by the way.

The Nightwatchgirl said...

Stani - you're always going to lose if it's between NWG liking Hoggard and you liking NWG.

Always.

Stani Army said...

Did you just put yourself down? How could you NWG? Apologise to NMG now!

I suppose the fact that you did NOT say "you're always going to lose if it's between NWG liking Hoggard and NWG liking you", means I'm still in with a chance.

By the way, has anyone ever told you that you have lovely arms? (this should clinch it. Hogboy eat your heart out!....actually, I shouldn't encourage him to eat should I?)
