    Thats in the tests. He has an average of 31 in ODIs.

    In the last year he has been out for less than 30 over half the time. And given that those 30 runs include atleast 4x4, it is very annoying to see him get out.
    I mean it would be ok if he were stealing 1s and 2s on a bad day and he got out. But he always starts out hitting 4s and then gets out caught in the slips off an edge. It just makes me :flaming:

    So now I have sport channels!!
    I saw a NHL game!
    What a game, Bruins - Flyers, Flyers were loosing 3 to 1 and they tied the game in the last 2 minuts and won it in sudden death.
    Waiting to see some NFL - NBA games!
    Oh, sweet sports channels. How I missed them.

    Halfway through the first qurater, the Packers were already up 14-0. Surprise, surprise, they squandered it. :shame: Now it's halftime and they're only up 17-14 due to a final field goal under the two-minute warning. Can you smell what the Pack is cooking? Another loss, I bet. :rolleyes:

    EDIT:
    Hmph. Seems they pulled it off, 33-25. *Ahem* Yay! :banana:

    Oh man, i gotta get me a package like that too, they hardly ever broadcast any of the American sports here, we only had a few minutes of highlights from the Worldseries for instance, and that's just not good enough for me.

    How much does a package like that cost on a monthly basis ? I already have cable, which costs me 50€ per month, but i'm willing to pay extra, whatever it takes to be able to see the MLB, NHL, and NBA again.

    I know what you mean Pac Man. I would love to see some NFL, baseball or nascar, but they just don't show that stuff here.

    But digital television isn't that expensive on a monthly basis. The cheapest package with extra channels should cost about 5 euros a month more than your analog cable television. And the installation and first decoder box are probably free. However, if you want it on multiple television it will cost you, considering you need a nifty little box on every tv. I haven't really looked into the cost of that, but I doubt it will be very cheap.

    I used to have Canal+, mainly for the NBA and MLB games, but when i moved to my new appartment, and my rent got doubled, i threw them out first. But i'm starting to miss those fridaynights and sundaynights with basketball, there's a new season underway and i'm missing everything. :(

    I'm not a wrestling fan (and no, my nick is not taken from WWF :p ). I never heard about him. But I guess a minute of silence would be best now.

    UW volleyball tonight kicked a$$. :banana: 30-27, 30-14, 30-25. If there had been a need for a fourth game, I bet it would have gone like the second, and a fifth game might've been a blow-out. :heh: Michigan's coach either had no idea how to rotate properly, or no players worth rotating.

    More a$$-kickage tonight as UW volleyball wiped the floor with Michigan State 30-17 in the first game. They rallied for the second and third games, but we still swept them 30-28 and 32-30. But the most amazing thing is who I saw there:
    this guy -> :banana: I am not kidding; there was actually someone in a banana suit dancing around. :lol: And guess what it reminded me of. ;)

    I watched some of Chelsea vs. Newcastle yesterday. Too much focus on Chelsea, imo. I barely saw Newcastle players.
