NWG Is Happy

This may be a small victory for England. In fact, it doesn't really have much to do with England at all.

For it seems India have done England a huge favour (thanks for that).

Thanks to India beating Australia 2-0 in their series, Australia are now below England in the Test rankings.

NWG says hurrah.

Not that this means England will beat Australia. Not that the Ashes will be easy. But that finally, and it's taken a long while, England, on points (which is just as important) are better than Australia.

NWG will sleep happily tonight knowing old Ricky will be cross.

Mare, don't be so unassuming, honestly. This is bad, it would have only highlighted to Ricky where he has to make improvements before the Ashes.

NWG should be sad. You know what it is right? The impending trip to Aus has pumped you full of endorphins and you haven't realised. Have people recently commented 'You look happy today'? Or have you noticed yourself shrugging your shoulders to things that would have otherwise driven you mad....like the neighbour not picking up his dog's poo from outside your front garden? If the answer to any of those is yes, the it's the endorphins.

Australia are last in the rankings.... ha, ha, ha.

Okay they are not actually last, but the teams below them are useless.

Listen Stani - NWG is not sad. It may well be the endorphins, but either way she's isn't complaining.

And Rob - it may be a small victory, but NWG is taking all she can get.

I'm just worried about your ticker Mare. The Indians may have just fired the Aussies up. I just don't want you getting disappointed, that's all. I hope you don't apply this 'all I can get' philosophy to all walks of life Mare.

Really Rob?
At least the teams from Australia, Pakistan, West Indies, New Zealand and Bangladesh are actually made up of Australian, Pakistani, West Indian, Kiwi and Bangladeshi players right?

Stani - that joke is getting old. Leave England alone.

Stani Army said...

I do, it's the South Africans and Irishmen I'm picking on :)

It's not a joke Mare, it's a fact. But why show off in the first place anyway? The English should be more humble, and you wouldn't even hear of me dissing them. I'm just defending the nations outside of this little sanctimonious club.

And let's not forget, 'useless' Pakistan did beat England in one Test and they weren't even trying the rest of the time.

Speak the truth Mare, even if it hurts

NWG is always humble, don't confuse that with her optimism.

Stani Army said...

The humble request was more at Rob...
and don't confuse optimism with endorphins :)

either way, NWG likes feeling like there is a little chance for England this winter. Especially with their lucky mascot there....

Stani Army said...

Heeehahaha Lucky? Didn't you attend the Oval ODI? Left mojo at home did we? :P

Plus, you wont be out there very long will you? What will England do without their 'lucky mascot' the rest of the time?
