Dancing On The Ashes, Cont'd Yet Again

Mrs. Werbenmanjensen and I were having a Sunday lunch at our local pub when our downstairs neighbor, a Glaswegian by birth, popped in for a drink with a mate. We began discussing our plans for Christmas, and he mentioned that he would be flying to Australia for "the cricket," as he put it, with a wry aside, "not that it will matter." Yes, folks, they play all five matches, even though 10 days' worth of play are for naught, simply because people have purchased tickets ....

(ADDED) It's over. In reaction to an interview with an England player who said the team would like to win a test match in Australia, a BBC Five Live announcer just said, "They'll probably go to Melbourne and get another thrashing."
