What The Heck Is Wrong With The South African Cricket Team — Is It Voodoo?

Given the amount of cricket I watch, I have seen a lot of teams — and the recent West Indies team readily comes to mind — play horribly. But, the South African performance against Australia in the 1st T20 was beyond comprehension. It was an absolute, bloody abortion. Jesus wept. I nearly did too.

Yes, there is definite Munda Logic — i.e., African thought process, or, in this instance, to be precise, lack of thought process all together. I think the world of Quinton de Kock. But, as captain he is demonstrating what used to be joked about him. He is NO intellectual. He seems utterly lost as captain.

The dropped bloody catches. I have never seen anything like that?

I don’t believe in that mumbo jumbo, but many of them do and is it possible that they think that they are under a Voodoo spell. Sire played like they were under a dark cloud.

Yes, then there is the possibility of CORRUPTION and match-fixing!

What is going on right now is NOT right. Something is very, very WRONG.

I am very upset. I like this team, BUT not when they play like this — like a bunch of teenage girls all having their monthlies at the same time.

As I explained in this post, last week, for the last 10-months I have started listening to the radio during my 2-hours a day of walking/light jogging. Helps me deal with the time. I just listen to local FM stations — NHPR/NPR (on 89.1 or 90.1) and music. Nothing too esoteric. Now that the BBC doesn’t transmit on SW, I have no use, whatsoever, for SW.

I had bought a fake ‘Grundig’ from ‘Eton Corp.’ to meet my needs. It was a decent radio. Good reception. Good sound. But, it was big, heavy and bulky. I could carry it around but it felt like lugging a brick. Then I found this on Amazon. $13? I pay that much for exotic drinks at Chinese restaurants. I could afford $13. So, I got one.

Well, you can see my review. I was blown away and I am not the only one raving. It is not fancy. Just FM and basically manual tuning — albeit with the radio auto-locating all the available stations. The stereo sound with earbuds is beyond amazing.

If you are in the market for a great FM radio, check this out. You will not be dissapointed.
