46.2 overs, 5 maidens, 16/254, avergae of 15.88 at 17.38, with a best effort of 3/21.

I bowl slow, dont turn the ball. but people try to smack me and they hit it straight up and hopefully other people catch it,

what i do is i dont score runs but i hold up my end. ive had a few decent partnerships where i have only scored 2 or 3 runs.
Ahh, right. I'm totally fucking useless as a batsman. If I'm lucky, I'll get a run or two, but any bowler with the faintest modicum of accuracy could bowl me for a duck without even trying. You try batting when you have no depth perception!

Bowling, however ... fuck, I miss doing that. I don't even have a backyard these days, though.

Dude, it's AFL. Nobody who actually lives in Geelong goes for the Cats. Cats fans all live in Darwin and Launceston and Broken Hill ... and Wezza.

No pictures, but I think this article is talking about the "Melbourne Eye" ... real original name, folks.

Batting, to the surprise of thousands, is actually MUCH harder than it looks.

Well.

In my opinion.

Everyone's a backyard cricketer, on the pitch it is much harder.

Do bowlers not need depth perception as much as batters?

TRY HARDER NEXT TIME, FOLKS. You'd think in Melbourne, of all places, they'd at least have SOME imagination.

Well, I don't need to hit anything! I just need to know the general direction in which to deliver the ball.

Get me to kick a fixed object and watch my foot sail right over or under it and you'll see how useless I am at judging this stuff. And that's a fixed object! A moving ball is an absolute nightmare.

Just getting a good stance is hard enough. I knew this guy who would've been a Queensland state cricketer had he not suffered a back injury, and he spent ages teaching me how to properly bat. There wasn't anything he could do about the whole no-depth-perception thing, though.

I trained with my high school's team on occasions, mainly bowling since I am (or used to be) quite a good spinner, but I never could play a real game. I can't bat, can't field, and can't stay in the sun for any length of time, so ...!

I miss getting out for a bowl.
