Lamentations on cricket commentaries…

I stayed up late to watch the 30min BBC Ashes Highlights at 23:25 – which is, incidentally, the ONLY Ashes coverage on terrestrial TV – and was struck by just how much I miss watching the cricket…

I miss the action, of course, but then there’s all the fun of the commentaries, the seagull count, the sledging..

See Pavlov’s Cat’s Blog (link down on the left side of page):- “… hot contender for the Mind-Bogglingly Vacuous Statement of the Bloody Obvious Division of the Sports Commentary Awards of the Summer has already emerged from the Channel Nine commentary box: –
‘And if England had had Shane Warne playing for them, they might have won this match.’ ”

I miss the TV commentaries. Radio commentaries just aren’t the same – they’re not as fun.
