Hanging By A Thread

with one comment

If England‘s problems are really down to an Ashes hangover, then it must be the grandmummy of hangovers. The type of hangover that drains your cranium of all its fluid, forcing your brain to reach for the nearest restorative liquid, any liquid, even if it’s the faggy, gob-infused dregs of an ancient Malibu and coke. A hangover that bearhugs your innards and compels chunky vegetable soup up your foodpipe and dribbling out through your mouth. A hangover that wakes you on your front doorstep in a puddle of your own urine with no recollection of what happened before.

2010 happened before. England won their first major limited overs tournament and brought home an urn. It’s the same game chaps, sort of. It’s the same ball. Not a novelty soap.

Sehwag waits on Sunday. I can feel my headache coming on already. I might watch the Hollyoaks omnibus.

  1. Ah, the four yearly: what excuse will England have for their appalling World cup form.

    This year we will be mostly using “hangover from winning the Ashes”

    Four years ago we mostly used “hangover from losing the Ashes”

    Four years before that, I think we mostly blamed Zimbabwe.

    The previous four years we probably blamed the pitches and weather (it was in England)
