Debut at 39

Well on Saturday I play my first cricket match. I was picked for the third team. Gotta wear all white, which will make me look even fatter than I am. I am not allowed to punch, tackle or choke anyone. I have taken up the game at 39, first time I held a cricket ball in my hand was about six months ago. Hadn't even seen it, ever until our first visit here about three years ago, and to be honest my first thought was "dumbest game I have ever seen". Well, I see things differently now, what a great game.

I am excited. I keep playing over the game in my mind. I play it brilliantly in my mind. Wonder how I'll do on the field. I'll let you know.

Show em your flipper mate!

the flipper will not be seen by my opponents this season. I have no control over it at all. I will work on it in the off season. I have a top spinner, and a googly and my slider is starting to go pretty well. So I will stick with them.

It is not advisable for anyone who is 39 and looking fat in tighty whities to show their Flipper to anyone!
