Instead of measuring out 22 yards, the correct distance between the stumps, the Queen's Gardeners at the grounds of Balmoral had used meters adding an extra 6 feet to the wicket.
As a result the Crathie cricket club's ageing bowlers
had all their venom taken out and they ended up being relegated.
"I cannot believe we played a whole season before anyone noticed. It is quite embarrassing but in our defense none of our protagonists noticed either."

Ashes Glory
How can it be
18 years since
ashes tasted like
the sweetest champagne?
Winning the ashes must
signal a time for renewal..
So how about letting shielas
bat or bowl for country and Queen?

Hurricane Katrina

Another really tragic disaster and the deepest sympathy to those who lost loved ones. The tidbit of information that is most puzzling is that the most affected were those who couldn't afford to flee. Couldn't some sort of disaster fund be set up at short notice without the bureacratic red tape? Even if it was neighbourhood for neighbourhood. Having never experienced such a disaster in my life, be it inclement weather or political coup that one has to flee for one's life, perhaps one can't question this non-action. Can't remember what the Brums did in the wake of their recent tornado.
