I received an email recently from a lady who has the same name as one of my best friends.
I was hugely confused because the email was all about cricket. And this friend don't like cricket (nor does she love it).
Then I realised it was from someone else, a marketing rep, writing to tell me that Cricket NSW have a new website, inauspiciously named breedingthebignames.com. Cocky bastards.
Now, this name is all well and good if you're from NSW, but actually some of us aren't. And the fact that the national team is picked from the NSW players on offer (and one Tasmanian captain, how's that for an outlier?)
And WA have 'bred' our fair share of big names, thanks.
But the site is worth a visit because it has the craziest video gimmick on it. By crazy I mean scary. Cricketers with giant plastic heads. Seriously. I'm not sure who thought it was a good idea but they missed the mark a bit because I couldn't work out who was supposed to be who. I don't think Brett Lee is going to be very impressed with his!
I heard the Tasmanians are trialing something similar for their new website, but theirs will have two heads.
