Most of you probably don't watch the cricket, but it's still worth a try.


England beat Australia today to regain the Ashes trophy. This is their second win in several years, with their victory in 2005 and this year at the Oval cricket ground.

THIS is the Ashes trophy...it's tiny.

Hmm, I know I'm Scottish so it doesn't matter to me, but Ozland will win it back next year. And probably the year after that. It's really bad with English teams, when they seem to be doing well, they kinda go and ruin it somehow. I dunno though.

....

that trophy does not look very satisfying to have

it looks quite sad

baw, poor trophy
Cette nuit j'ai rêvé que je mâchais ses yeux
Après avoir crevé par accès de furie
Ta replète panse d'helminthes blancs nourrie,
Trop prompte à déféquer le fruit d'un vit sanieux.

I'm still upset a group of robots didn't steal the trophy in order to open the wikkit gate and release the denizens of the planet Krikkit.

That NEVER happens anymore

It wasn't designed to be a thing of wonder and beauty. It's the historical importance of it's contents and the intense rivalry which make the Ashes what it is, not the physical trophy.

Or you could read The Hitchhikes Guide To The Galaxy; they basically summarize it into about a sentance, if I remember correctly.

After Australia beat England in England for the first time, a newspaper person wrote a satirical obituary claiming ''English cricket has died, the body will be burned and the ashes taken to Australia'' or something similar. The next series was dubbed 'the quest to regain the Ashes'.

The story goes that the ashes of English cricket lie within that little urn

So this is basically a fight started by some Aussie sports journo .....

Not really the historical epic I had expected, I mean I'd hoped for love, passion, a huge battle, betrayal, lashings of sizzling gypsies

Instead I'm presented

"Some tit made a joke, some other tit waited a year and made a related one"

... bollocks to cricket.

The trophy is still shite

Wasn't there a myth about the urn holding the ashes of a set of bails? Don't ask me to elaborate, that's as much as I've heard about the topic.

The Aussies didn't deserve to win, they were appaling. Ponting is now the only captain in 100 years to lose consecutive Ashes series' in England

Yeah, that's what i heard. The bails from the game. The English paper of the day then wrote that obituary and the rest is history.

The Ashes trophy is believed to contain the ashes of the cricket stumps used in the first Ashes match.
