Sadly not much chance I'm afraid.

 

There are a few metal fans around the circuit. I know Gillespie likes his rock for one. I'll keep my anonymity but my brother also plays for a county and he's borrowed a lot of my stuff over the years.

Ok, ok. A cricket bat. I wasn't sure. We have baseball bats, but I wasn't sure. I seem to remember you can hit the ball in almost any direction. Sheesh, ever heard of a foul ball?

Most of the leagues around here favor 301 or 501, but my fave has always been Cricket. The thing that galls me is that only one or two of the leagues play no-slop (which is the correct way to play IMO). Most are happy to play slop. Ick.

 

Then there's the matter of strategy. Most start with the trip-20, whereas for some reason I always do better going after the bullseye first; there's something about the height of the 20 that throws me off.

 

What?

 

That's not what we're talking about? ;)

I know exactly what my good English friend is aiming to do here ! :poke: .

Bait the hook , throw the line and wait for the bite!!!!!! Well best i don't let you down !!

"Cricket. A game the English will win."

We ain't no Bangladesh , Zimbabwe or New Zealand , we are the World Champions and you are very close to finding that out "again"

If i could give the English cricket hierachy some advice in making English cricket somewhere near the standard of Australian cricket, it would be;

Stop importing all the overseas talent to play in your county cricket competition because they will never be able to play for England anyway.

You would think you would learn from your Premier League Soccer.You import all the talent from other countries to make it a good competition, but come World Cup time ,they all go back to play with their own countries and thats why you don't then, have the talent to win a World Cup.

You have to bring your own young talent through the ranks and put your belief and trust in them ,that they can get the job done ;)

So sit back , drink your warm beer and let us show you how it is really done :bye:

I will admitt that one of us is in for a huge fall and a huge eating of humble pie.

Don't worry though Ian , supporting English sport , you should be well trained by now in doing that :lol:

Watching England either batting or in the field would be like watching the best of Benny Hill. That is the only way you are going to be able to laugh your nuts off :rofl2::rofl2::rofl2::rofl2:

Way the English destory Warnie's Hampshire on the weekend is good warm up, but the Aussie will destory the old country.

Kevin Petersen must be picked in test side, he wasting his talents just playing in one day side.

A Foreigner will possess the essential knowledge of cricket when he fully understands the following:

 

You have two sides: One out in the field and one in.

Each man that's in the side that's in goes out and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out.

When they are all out the side that's out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in out.

Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

When both sides have been in and out including the not outs,

That's the end of the game.

 

 

:whistle:

Dear Dave/Doggy,

You guys been watching the first 20/20 game?

 

We just tore through your so called "best batting line-up in world cricket" like a knife through butter. If you missed any of it I've got the highlights on video tape I can send through? :lol:

 

Bangladesh gave us a better game...

 

:banana:

Maybe now the Aussies will see that we are really up for this and maybe better than they think!!!! - OK only a 20/20 game you may say but psychologically a massive boost. A long way to go, but Englands attitude today was spot on.

I've got it in DIVX format. Shouldn't take long to download. :nyanya:

 

England have now won the last 3 games against Australia. The gap ain't so big now.

    • New song 'Fans Of The Dark'.    
    • Shadows of Yesterday - Vinnie Moore
    • Sorry, that wasn't really what I meant. What I was really going for is that the songs on other albums seem to me to have more of a similar feel to them, like you can tell the songs for Freedom Rock were pretty much all written at the same time. I'm not saying that the songs on Force Majeure don't sound like H.E.A.T (even though I maintain it's not as good, based on the first few spins, as their previous efforts), but that they sound, to me, more "scatterbrained" than the selections from other records. That's not an easy thing to explain, but "direction" was the best word I could think of.    Again, I probably could explained my point better. I wasn't advocating for more guitars so much, but for more variety in the guitars we get. One of the best things for me about the first two H.E.A.T albums (less so for Address the Nation, but still there) was the subtle trade-offs between Dalone and Rivers and the solos that switched between them (good examples of this include the guitar work on "Late Night Lady," "Danger Road" and "Tonight," off the top of my head). Simply because Dalone and Rivers played different set ups and had some variance in tone, you could tell the difference between their playing (though admittedly there were times where Eric Rivers was completely underutilized and overshadowed). Because of the the combination of this record's production and the guitars being all Dave, you don't have as much of that, and that's what I was trying to convey.
    • Agree it reminds of earlier material, but I'm much less of a "Hang Tough" guy and much more of a "What A Shame" kind of guy.
    • Skid Row Nelson Steel Panther Harem Scarem WASP Van Hagar Saliva Joey Tempest Michael Sweet White Lion Mr. Big ... are the easy ones for me. Possibly Warrant as well come to think of it. Some other popular ones listed taht I don't agree with would be Slaughter - 2nd album pipped it GNR - always preferred either UYI albums Tuff - really only had 1 1/2 albums so don't count    
    • and the lyrics tick tock time to rock don't make you cringe?? if it was 1986 and I was 16 it might have been just passable but now, no. 
    • Another release that seems to have been completely overlooked here on HH... check out those vids for "Give It Up" and "Love Will Not Let You Down". I swear both tunes sound like something you'd hear from AdrianGale!  Compassion | Akiba Music (bandcamp.com)  
    • I might stone thrown at me, but hear some Scorpions.
    • "One Voice", which is a demo, is the only one I hear the tape "hiss" on...
    • Is that cassette tape hiss I hear at the start of the song? Is the whole album like that or only the demo tracks?
