of CHOKERS! Big Friendly and I are starting to have a very hard time. We’re starting to take it personally. But honestly, yesterday was just plain old terrible. I must confess; I never really entertained the possiblity that the Poepteas could beat the black caps, but I did hope.

There they are. At sea in a lifeboat with a slow leak (wish to god they had a slow bowler). I’m past the blaming stage. I just want it to be over now.
