Rain Rain Stay A While

One of NWG's favourite things in the whole world is when a team doesn't have to do anything to win.

Today it rained.

Today England won the ODI series against South Africa.

They didn't need to do anything.

The rain was their batsmen, bowlers and fielders.

And the rain got man of the match (champagne, a car and a cheque if you're interested).

Go England.

I knew you wasn't a cricket fan.

I'm heartbroken

I was just thinking the same thinkg, Stani.

For shame.

The Nightwatchgirl said...

Yes it's true. NWG hates cricket. It is a rubbish sport. Boring. Slow. Filled with uninteresting people.


Stani Army said...

And I thought you was the one girl Nightmare who didn't watch cricket to perv on the blokes (sorry Sid). I have lost all hope in humanity.

I could never think of watching women's cricket for the same reason....or for any other reason, but that's beside the point.

I'm sad. We just lost 0-4 to Man utd. How did your hunks do? Or was you too busy perving to notice the score?

The Nightwatchgirl said...

NWG's team won today, so she's happy. And she was only joking about not liking cricket. She still loves it. It's still pretty rare for England to win a one day series, especially in South Africa, so she just wanted England to win.

There's nothing wrong with that. Especially after the mental strain from the summer caused such problems for NWG.

Stani Army said...

Hmmmm, your team:

1)Not West Ham
2)Not a London team
3)Not Man utd
4)Won today

It's one of these:
Man City

One word, boring :)

Come on, you gotta give me more to go on?

You watch when I see you, Chinese burn! You is going down sister.

HEY! I only perv on My Lord NMH and then only because I am determined he is under rated.

He is, you know.

NWG is a Villa fan. I'm sure of it.

Stani Army said...

Underrated how? Explain, so I can tell you whether I know or not :)

Yeah, probably Villa. And I don't blame her for not saying anything, I'd be ashamed too.


The Nightwatchgirl said...

Let's be clear: this is a cricket blog. No talking about football. NWG is officially banning it (Stani - until you have something nice to say about NWG's team, say nothing at all).

Sid, yes, you're right. 10 points for you.

Stani - for being nasty, -10 points.

Stani Army said...

I shall now provide clear evidence that all that love and those points you've given to Sid should have actually been mine.

Reason 1: Sid was the first to mention footy on this blog, not me.

Reason 2: I said Villa before Sid

Evidence in support of both reasons:

GIVE ME MY POINTS BACK! (Sorry Sid, but I'm fiercely competitive)

The Nightwatchgirl said...

OK Stani - seeing as you make a good argument, you can have some points, which puts you back at 0. Make another good observation and you can have some more...

Can we have a post about the rain going away now? It is still raining and if it dose not stop the squad aint going to get out and do any outside training or get to play any warm up matches!!!

Stani Army said...

Well your argument is awful. How can I still be on 0 if you agreed that punishing me with -10 was wrong? I wasn't nasty, merely stating facts. Surely I move back to 0 and then, with those points you've given me, move up to 10? Draconian. You're just evil Nightmare.

I'll forgive you if you turn off your blog "word verification". It's not required because I doubt anyone else is bothered enough to annoy you as I am.

I love clears all the dog sh*t from our streets.

....and in the rain, you can still play...that game, begins with a f, has the word 'ball' at the can still play that in the rain. Only cricketers are scared of rain.
