Step Right In!
I've resolved to not make any resolutions. This is a good thing because it's the only resolution that's not doomed for failure. I can break all the rules without breaking all the rules...if you know what I mean! I'll move on while I'm ahead!
Yesterday was spent doing little other than limbering up for the start of the Fifth Test today. Thousands have been lined up outside the Sydney Cricket Ground since before 4am to rush in to get seats when the gates open at 7am. With Warne, McGrath and now, Langer, all retiring when this Test is over, we will be witnessing the end of an era. Will Australia's cricket team retain the mantle of 'the best cricket team in the world' after these three walk off the field for the last time? It will be with great interest that we welcome the new blood into the team. Whomever they will be, they will have big boots to fill! I think Stuart Clarke is well on his way to filling the pair put out for him!
It'll be an emotion-filled time watching their farewell but on the other side of the coin, it will interesting and exciting watching the 'new-blood' come into the side and perform. All good things come to an end, the saying goes...the 'old step aside to make room for the young' (that's my saying...I think!)
I must stop dilly-dallying...a few things I have to get done before the game starts! Shhh...don't disturb me after 9.30am!
