Saw it for the first time, Thursday night, on “One World Sports“, on “Sling TV” (once “DishWorld“) on my Roku 3, while watching Eng. v. NZ T20.

It was BRILLIANT. So clever. So well done. Just amazing editing. A classic.

Some GREAT memorable still pictures from Ashes from years past. You will remember some. You HAVE to watch it. It is catchy.

You will see Nasser Hussain, David Lloyd, Michael Atherton, David Gower, Michael Holding and others …

You will thank me. You will see.

I happened to do a search on ‘Cricket’ on DirecTV last night and got the above results.

I watched two of the 12 minute ICC Champions Trophy 2013 highlight packages: England vs. New Zealand and Sri Lanka vs. India.

The coverage was appalling. ESPN has no idea. They start by telling you the outcome of the match. The two commentators are basically inarticulate and one of them has such a thick accent I can’t even work out whether he is talking English or some foreign language. Never heard of them either, like who the heck is ‘Ricardo Powell‘? Is he some Cuban that played softball for a women’s league in drag? They sure are not Michael Holding and Jeffrey Dojon.

You can’t cover even a 24 over ODI in 12 minutes. It was totally unsatisfactory.

That ESPN has cricket rights is a bloody travesty. I blame the Indians. They had to have been responsible.

Yes, I know. So many don’t even know about the Berlin 1936 Olympics and the snubbing of U.S. hero Jesse Owens.

I vowed never to buy a German car in 1982 after my first visit to Liverpool, England. You could still see empty blocks from the German bombing 40 years earlier. I have been steadfast. I have never bought one and will openly criticize those that do. Right now there are plenty of U.S., Korean or British alternatives. The new Buicks, Fords, Chryslers and Lincolns look much more compelling to me than a bloody German car. If you want high-end, go Cadillac or Jag. Buy Italian. They were always harmless. They never bombed anyone other than themselves.

This ad. just confirms what I have always known. And I won’t even talk about the time when a bloody German tourist, just jumped into my moored boat at Meredith harbor to get a picture. I treated him to a verbal diatribe, without once using a swear word, that had all those standing on the dock shocked. He ran.

This ad is offensive. Jamaicans rock. Usain Bolt is Jamican. Bob Marley is Jamaican. Michael Holding is Jamican. This ad is pure German.

Do you know that story: ‘No, no maan. My tattoo doesn’t say “Wendy”. You crazy, maan? Mine says: “Welcome to Jamaica and have a nice day”‘.

You do know that story, right? The man from Chicago that has his new wife’s name, ‘Wendy‘, tattooed onto his pecker before going on their honeymoon to Jamaican clothing optional resort and meeting a Jamaican who also had ‘Wy‘ showing on his flaccid pecker. Well, that is the keyword when it comes to German cars: flaccid. [P.S., My father, or more to the point his wife owns a Mercedes, and I tell my father off about that. But, my father isn’t British and he, having grown up under British rule of Ceylon, isn’t (to my amusement), that fond of the British — though my mother, an anglophile, insisted that I had a full British upbringing, cocooned in British books and culture.]
