Thoughts from the Dustbin

… almost the width of Gatting

>The expected New Year post

>This is the time when we are all supposed to write a post telling you all about one of the following:

  • New blogs that appeared in 2010
  • my favourite blogs of 2010 OR
  • my favourite blog posts of 2010

But that would imply I like one or two of you, and I don’t want to lure you all into a false sense of security like that.

So, instead, here is the Gits of 2010 honour roll – 5 players selected from a huge cast of potentials:

Stuart Broad for the “was he/wasn’t he?” ball tampering scandal and for running to Daddy to get him out of trouble.
Andrew Hilditch for … where to begin? Maybe we should think of the reasons he isn’t a git, because that would be quicker.
Nope, got nothing.
Sachin Tendulkar – just because it will piss people off to have him on this list.
Zulquy Haider – for trying to move to the UK when Australia is so much nicer.
Xavier Doherty – for not being My Lord.
Oh, come on! That was predictable, wasn’t it?

    >Shridhar and Chris, have a great New Year.Shridhar, Ijaz was on a long list of people – which also included Ponting, Swann, and Mohammad Amir – who were dropped off in my quest to have only 5.

    >Ijaz Butt will sue you for dropping him. It's a conspiracy to defame him and spoil his 2011…

    >Sachin's watch does it for me. So doesn't go with the shirt!!!Surprised Swann isn't here. Annoying, egotistical, best spinner in the world, inventor of "The Sprinkler" ;) Happy New Years ;)

    >Craig, I couldn't resist a Sachin dig – I do think he is a great player really, I just get sick of people going unduly nuts ever time he hiccups or anything.I figured I had gone on and on about Swann over the last year and decided he deserved a break. Don't worry, I'll come to my senses soon.Shridhar – I'm prepared for Ijaz's backlash, I consulted my lawyer before writing this post. I have agreed, in writing, to include Butt in next year's New Year post on condition that he remains a git throughout 2011 to make the post easier to write.Sorted.Thanks, Wes. All the best to you and yours as well.
