And it annoys me when they prove another fucking cliche correct, in this case that they're abysmal when they play away.

What anybody who says that phails to mention is that they've now played both of last years grand finalists on the road, and the team that finished third last year.

It may just be me, but i don't think that's a very easy schedule. Especially when those games are in Melbourne, Manly and Townsville.

Still, i expect both the Australian media and NZ media to churn out the bullshit.
Yeah, that's a pretty fucking harsh schedule. Any team's going to struggle with that.

But come on, the Australian sports media doesn't give a rats arse about being impartial or having any sense of quality. Most of the newspapers aren't even fit to wrap fish and chips in.

I think I'm going to support Chennai just because they have Fleming, Oram, and Einstein.
I think it's hard to go past the Mumbai Indians

I laugh when I see people reading the Herald Sun. I just think "you probably never went to university and still think the children overboard thing was completely legit".

I wish they were the Mumbai Bay Bombers, in reference to their city's old name.

Bleh, turns out the Punjab vs Chennai game has begun already and it's not starting until 11pm here because Channel 10's showing the AFL live. Turf the AFL off to some network that's just wasting time with a movie and give me cricket!

I laugh at the Daily Terrorgraph


PASSENGERS IN FEAR FOR THEIR LIVES ON QANTAS FLIGHT


When they make a normal go around.

My choices now consist of grassroots rugby, a league replay (i just watched the game), golf and netball highlights.

That would be brilliant, but probably a bit too intelligent for this competition.

At least they aren't the Tactix.

Though the worst newspaper in the world has got to be the Daily Mail.

If you believe anything in that paper, you probably didn't finish kindy.

Wow, you'd think they could slot a game featuring Fleming and Oram into there. I'd sort of understand if no Kiwis were playing, but not in this case.

I love how some of the names are based on the corporate name of whoever's sponsoring the team. Way to not even hide the hyper-commercialisation.

But hell, if it can keep producing things like McCullum's 158* off 73, I can get into it.
