Today I had the good fortune to meet the Deputy Prime Minister.
Now, I only work for a small news organisation, and yes there was a bit of shoving and pushing involving Channel 9 and ABC camera crews.
However, one of her media people did ask me if I had anything I wanted to ask her, so I thought on my feet and enquired whether she believes that Ricky Ponting will still be Australia's captain for the next Ashes tour.
Actually, an excellent suggestion has been made on this very blog - that Ricky Ponting be installed as President of Myanmar. Now I can see the merits in this, but only if his cricket career really is over. Which I'm quite confident it isn't.
And Brad Haddin's all grown up now and all, they interviewed him on the news and he had opinions and it almost brought a tear to the eye I tell ya. What was he bangin on about? Oh yes, whether HawkEye should be involved in official cricket decisions.
He thought not. I think it's worth a try. The three appeals thing or whatever it is. If it's crap, dump it! Good philosphy for most things really. Anyway, is Braddles captain/vice captain material?
I came across a picture of Andrew Flintoff leaving court and my respect did diminish a bit (at LAST!) because he doesn't look like the manly man he does on field. He looks like a soccer player! And check out the sunnies. Yuck.
He has been 'cleared of speeding on a technicality'... isn't that law speak for 'he had the money to buy representation good enough to get him out of it'?.
I wonder how you can get out of speeding on a technicality. Personally I abhor speeding, so let's hope it's a lesson learnt (cos shit if you end up in court over it you must really have been speeding)... yeah, right eh?
