That’s pretty messed up…maybe she conned police into thinking she was family of something. Lax attitude by the cops.

Still can't believe it. I'm not ashamed to admit i shed many tears on the day he passed. A national icon. It's confronting to accept someone you've never met and have only seen through visual imagery and audiocast can have such a profound effect on you. Makes you wonder if people have been put on this earth for a reason. I think we were all meant to learn from Warney. He's always been a hero to me and i think from the feedback since his death he has been a most wondrous spirit in the life of all. He was sent to us for a reason. Vale Warney. Never met but felt your energy pure and from it's source.

And blow me down, those deliveries just get better with time. I saw heaps of them in real time, but to watch them now, against the judgement of father time....they surpass everything that has come since, by a country mile. His physique and strength and dexterity were a deadly combination, and so out of the box! Could watch Warney bowl all day long. You knew you were in for an epic afternoons viewing when he was bowling with McGrath at the other end. The legend of these two, and Warney will only fully be appreciated long after we've vacated this rock.

Seeing him at Adelaide oval turn a test match on its head was amazing.
I’ll be telling my kids about that day
Like my dad tells me about being at Adelaide oval watching lillee and Thommo
Like my grandad told me about watching Bradman.
Amazing game cricket

Epic fight back by Pakistan. Aussies might be ruing that early declaration. We shall see….

Probably a good call though not to enforce the follow on.

Yeah definitely. If Pakistan chase them down it would have to be some sort of record, surely.

Bit of cricket going on. Found this amusing, Stuart Broad conceding a new record total for an over in a test. Well done son, couldn’t happen to a more deserving individual.

Old Broady has grown on me a bit blackers. I used to find him insufferable. Seems more grounded now. Less in your face, more relatable. But like Gab Medina.

Gotta say he seemed to take it in good humour.

I can’t disagree with you there etarip, but I have always been astounded at how many wickets he takes. Bowls complete dross so much of the time, but somehow magics up the unplayable. Just pleased to see him get whacked about at home, by a tail ender. Btw, loving your work in the USofA forum.
