It's that time of the year

First day of the first Ashes test today - what a shame I have to work! Otherwise I'd love to be at the Gabba watching our boys against their traditional foes, the poms. I may need to pick up a small radio for my office, so I can listen to the scores at least.
And its going to be a warm one, with 29 predicted for Brisbane. There'll be a lot of sunburned bods tonight. I'm not sure if I heard this correctly but I thought the news announcer this morning said that there were ten thousand members of the Barmy Army in town with tickets to the match. That seems improbably high - but then again, it IS the Ashes which are at stake.
With that many poms in the stands, the slagging off-field could be more entertaining than the antics on-field.
