Well, I (and Ali, I'm guessing?) may be able to fit in the 3pm showing before the PORCUPINE TREE GIG FUCK YES.

The best part? If they had abandoned the game, it would have been tied based on Duckworth-Lewis. Luckily for Kolkata, the lights were fixed in time. So they interviewed Billy Bowden and asked him what would've done had the game been abandoned and the result a tie. His response was "ooh, we would've had a bowl-out!" with this look on his face like the idea really excited him and he wished the light tower hadn't been fixed!

It was absolutely the perfect game for Bowden to umpire. It was so bloody comical.

We all know you'll go into debt for U2.

But will you come to PT with us too?

Huh, weird. Perhaps not quite as weird as the NPC playing games on Thursday, but still weird.

In my mind, you only play sport on Friday nights, Saturdays, Sundays, and maybe some public holidays. Unless the sport in question is cricket, of course.

No, the NPC doing that was just fucking stupid. At least Monday Night Football has been done in the past in league and is actually a TV ratings and generally speaking crowds success.

I couldn't stop laughing when it was happening. IPL FTW! For all your cricket, cheesy Indian music, and dying floodlight needs!

It's like they looked at the Tour de France, saw the whole yellow jersey thing, and tried to figure out how to transfer it to cricket without actually contemplating whether or not that's actually a good idea.

Stopping smoking:

But why drinking too?

Do you know if the NPC plans to continue doing it this year? I fucking hope not. But then just about everything they've done with the NPC the last few years has been nothing short of an absolute fuck-up. This isn't the tournament that captured my imagination when I was seven.
