I'm not intending to turn this blog into blind fangirl adoration, but it has to be said here at the outset of this post that Brad Hodge is gorgeous.
He is also a dickhead.
"I prove myself so often and tonight I just did it again, DID ANYONE SEE?!?!?!?!"
This behaviour annoys me, and if the young fool stopped and thought about it he might realise that talk like that might impact his selection chances.
Here are some more quotes (real) from this pillock. My favourite bit is in bold.
"I'm not really sure where I stand at the moment but all I can do is the same thing which I've done for a good decade now and that's make runs and continue to do what I do best and help Victoria."
"(But Andrew Symonds) hasn't set the world on fire in the short (time) since he's been playing domestic cricket. I suppose that's the criteria for getting selected to represent your country."
"We've always been in similar situations, myself and Simon (Katich). Opportunities have been scarce and I'm happy for him he's finally got a run at it over a decent period of time, something I've never got an opportunity at I guess."
"Probably time's not on my side but there are other forms of the game which come around and as you can see my skills are still high."
"I don't think you ever really give up the dream or ambition until you get a tap on the shoulder, sometimes the writing is on the wall."
"I don't necessarily see it that way but as long as I'm playing good cricket and continuing to strive hard, you never know."
