Mare, I'm doing this alternative version of a cricketing 'beauties' calendar and Ryan's gonna be Miss January. What a way to get things off eh? What you think? :)

The Nightwatchgirl said...

Perfect. A brilliant way to start the year with his ridiculous hair and scary smile

Stani Army said...

Yes, I'm not certain why he tries to look sexy in every photo. Someone should tell him.

Ben said...

Put Ponting and Symonds after that and ppl will be puking before April.

The Nightwatchgirl said...

what about the good looking guy that is nathan bracken? He's a real looker...

SixSixEight said...

I'd take Ryan any day over Barbie - but he ain't match fit so unless he is wonder boy with the sun in his hair.

NWG - that's your joke for the month isn't it - the twit with the alice band like?

The Nightwatchgirl said...

NWG was being deadly serious.

Stani Army said...

Whoa, easy Nightmare. I was talking about an alternative version of the calendar....plus, no girls allowed so Bracken misses out. The likes of Murali, Siddle, Gambhir and Malinga would kick up a fuss if I put Bracken ahead of them. And by the way, does Hoggy know about your Bracken love?

Ben, it's a difficult one. I wanna include all the 'stunners' but I want people to make it to December.

The Nightwatchgirl said...

Thing is, she's a sucker for a hair band on a man. It does look very masculine....

Stani Army said...

I better stop wearing one at footy then. Not sure it's masculine though because I had to steal mine from my niece. Don't tell her though, or I'm a dead man.

SixSixEight said...

Oh no! No no no no no!

No hairbands on men!

If they have long hair they must be man enough to cope - that is why Ryan is OK - so is Sharma and Mallinga, and indeed the very lovely Callum Thorp of Durham [he got his well conditioned hair cut mid season]. Stephen Harmison had long hair and no band. And in his favour even Barbie does not have one [although you could use that in your defence....shouldn't have mentioned that one should I - damn!!]

You'll be saying you like a nice moustache next!

The Nightwatchgirl said...

Sarcasm really doesn't work well in written word format.

NWG was joking.

Just to be clear.

Stani Army said...

668,
Taches are alright, as long as women don't have 'em.

In some parts of the world, they are considered as a yardstick with which to measure manliness.

There's a saying in urdu "much nahee phir kuch nahee" (if you don't have a tache, then you dont have anything)

Don't be dissing Merv Hughes or David Boon now. Geal men grrrr

Stani Army said...

Lying doesn't either Nightmare

Stani Army said...

*Real ;)

SixSixEight said...

Dissing Merv Hughes or David Boon - now would I....
They are a bit before my time! But I cant help thinking they both look like clowns!

a moustache is a very delicate balancing act that only a few lucky men can get away with. Rather worn by men for men mostly - as you demonstrate Stani - you like them - you are a man. [Although for you a moustache also has an extra cultural dimension.]

My culture is female contemporary and white. On fat white blokes they just say 'weird', and on most others a moustache says 'gay style icon'. And that is what I see when I see a man with a moustache most of the time - highly undesirable.

The only thing that saves both Merv Hughes or David Boon from the above is that they are Assies and timewarped - but I could never take them seriously.

Remember - if a man is too 'manly' [I'm talking looks here] - he will only attract other men and a small sample of weird women [I might be weird - but I'm not that kind of weird!]

NWG - Thats ok then *Phew! Hurrah! etc*

Stani Army said...

668,
Wow, you should go copy and paste that into Wikipedia under moustache. That was good, really. You knowing so much about taches makes me suspicious that you may have one of your own :)

You're not that young surely? I'm mid 20s and I still caught the end of Merv Hughes and David Boon.

I hate taches though....and being born in London, I have both cultures, yours and mine.

"The only thing that saves both Merv Hughes or David Boon from the above is that they are Aussies and timewarped"...very good! Perceptive 668 ;)

SixSixEight said...

It is a purely personal perspective natch, that's what blogs are for -no?. I don't know any ladies who really like moustaches. Stubble is of course a totally different matter.

Yeah I'm older than you Stani. I have a big gap in my cricket background - boycotted it [cos of South African rebel tours, women beating players, Boycs generally and too much deeply wrong facial hair!] Didn't come back to it until the England SA tour of 2004 [ah Mr Harmison and Mr Hoggard].

I am in denial of course and yeah I have actually seen the moustaches of Gooch, Gatting, and Lamb in action [those moustaches went on the rebel tours - so it also equates with men of little conscience, money grabbing and little care for equality, Gatting came over as a particularly thick individual at the time too] and yes Botham, Boon and Border [probably had a moustache too, and others] yes seen them too - but I have generally wiped it all from my mind. You have just forced me to confront my deepest terror - but hey today's crickets are much [much] better looking [apart from the ones with Alice bands]

Stani Army said...

668,
That's it, let out, there's a good girl. You're crazy...good crazy.

I don't like Gatting either but let's just comfort ourselves with how he got bowled by Wayne Sharne. Actually, I don't like Warne too....I've just made it worse.

SixSixEight said...

Ooooh you don't like Warne - good man!

Stani Army said...

You're putting it mildly 668. He cheated on his wife. I hate people that cheat on their spouse, they're not human.

SixSixEight said...

Hmmmmm obviously that is not an endearing trait, but isn't it one that is probably relatively common in regularly touring international sportsmen? [I imagine many don't get caught out]. Cheating on ones spouse is as a human trait as it is an animal one.

There are plenty of other reasons not to like him. What about the drugs, or the stupid gelled bleached hair?

Stani Army said...

668
I wouldn't say that cheating on ones spouse is as human a trait as it is an animal one as we are the superior creation and should behave like it (Anthropocentrism or Humanocentrism). Animals take what they can and when they can (instinct) but we have a free-will, conscience or moral compass that should stop us from doing wrong (deny instinct)....and cheating is wrong. Of course, that doesn't mean we don't do it but I'm not sure it is a human trait. The strongest argument I have that its not a human trait is that I will never do it. But I suppose there's things I will never do (smoke, drink, drugs) that others wouldn't think twice about doing.

Yes, there's definitely other reasons not to like Warne such as his criticism of Murali, pressure he puts on umpires to get dismissals, taking illegal substances, match fixing, calling the 'straight one' by 8 different names, having Atherton at number 43 and Vaughan at 35 in his list of greatest Test cricketers, but I do hate people that mess with people's hearts hence his cheating is number one :)
