    Exciting Times

    These sure are exciting times down here is Aus! There are only two days to go until the Ashes are once again, up for grabs. Cricket is all over the place too, with radio competitions (on popular, trendy radio stations no less!) offering Ashes tickets, "Ashes to Ashes" specials appearing on the major TV network - cricketers are hip, cricket is the talk of the town.

    One concern I have, is that these Test Matches will now be full of ODI style, Mexican wave doing, beer throwing "fans". Let's hope not - of course there is so much more to take from Test cricket that will be completely losts on a majority of these fans, but really, if this, possibly short lived, popularity introduces just a handfull of people who would otherwise not have noticed, to the world of Test cricket, it's got to be a good thing right? 10 or so years back, there was doubt about the future of Test Cricket (at least here). Now check it out!
