What?

Is it a bird?

Is it a plane?

Is it England?

No.

Impostors have taken over Lord's cricket ground. News is filtering through that Australia have been playing Pakistan.

And Pakistan lost something. Whether it is a game they've lost has not been confirmed.

Where is England?

Why are they hiding?

This is the summer and damn it, NWG expects them to be playing.

England.

Play.

Stop being greedy fatso. We play more exciting cricket anyway.

I've been meaning to ask you Mare, do you work for the MCC or am I being too clever for my own good? Don't hit me yeh, I still have the bruises from the last time.

NWG does not nor ever will work for any cricket organisation.

She's so much cooler than that.

And not a fatso.

Its strange summer scheduling. A glorious and completely unexpected world championship, then a bit of limited overs stuff, then nothing. I havent been following the cricket because of the other sporting event and Wimbledon and Tour de Lance.

Pakistan is only exciting cricket if you enjoy seeing car crashes and train wrecks.

Ben, you posh devil! Just cos you can't get strawberries and cream at cricket grounds! (Unless you're sitting next to Nightmare of course)

Mare, so what you're saying is that you're a professional writer? (reading between the lines is one of my many gifts)

Doesn't NWG ™®© qualify as a cricketing organisation?

Ben - NWG totally agrees with you. How dare England take a cricket holiday right in the middle of the summer. It's simply outrageous.

Stani - NWG is not a professional writer (can't you tell?). NWG (the website) is underground and subversive. She can never be bought. She will never sell her soul.

Saying that. If anyone out there would like to pay for NWG to watch cricket. Well, that would be pretty awesome.

p.s. Strawberries and cream are all NWG eats at cricket. Along with a bottle of champs. Because that's how it's done.

Are you underground too like those teenage mutant ninja turtles? Cool! I thought you were more like superwoman or catwoman.

I never had you down as an alcoholic Mare. Disappointing
