Thoughts from the Dustbin

… almost the width of Gatting

>The Finger of Ponting #2

>Dear Pup,

My pinkie is giving me jip, please be captain instead of me in Sydney. Please? Everyone has been mean to me and they want me to quit and I’m all hurt and confused and very pissed off at all of you bastards for not batting better … and I don’t want to play.

You’re not to get any ideas of staying on as captain, though, Sunshine. I’ll be back. I think I should just let the dust settle a bit on the Ashes, and let you take the crap if we lose at Sydney as well. Remind everyone that losing this series wasn’t just my doing. Then, when they hate you more than they hate me, I’ll step back up and start kicking arse again.

But, for now, my pinkie hurts. Please be captain at Sydney for me?

Love and kisses,


P.S. Try not to win and ruin my plan, eh?

    >Chance for Pup to make it break it. I hope neither. I want Cam White. Or Bailsgeorge. Or whoever's name isn't Punter or Clarke. But Clarke is still better than Punter. Hope he has learnt to put the manpants on. Eng gonna make a fist of it. No Hauritz in the squad >:(

    >I've a horrible feeling that the Aussies will win this game and then I'll be stuck with Mr Smiley as skipper for all time. Anybody notice how much he's been grinning? I think Punter has been manoeuvred into taking the finger seriously – as in rest your finger or you're 'rested' for other reasons. Wish Cam White was skipper. I would be hoping they win, instead of losing. I hope Khawaja and Mussey get runs regardless of them winning or losing.

    >I'm really disappointed hauritz isn't back for this one, Wes. He deserves it. I'm with you – I think England will take this one easily.My son just walked in an asked me what I am commenting about and I said "Clonting and Parke" LOL – there's a new set of nicknames!I think you're right, Lou, but I also think he was probably quite happy to get the heat off him for a bit. No doubt he's hoping for a loss, though, so the critics can see that it isn't only him who cocks up.I've always thought Punter slightly resembled Dubya, so perhaps I was subconsciously channelling him there, Rish. I can be odd like that.
