Cricket and League

One thing I have been missing in Australia is watching and listening to the footy and cricket on TV and Radio. A favourite Sunday afternoon pasttime was to listen live to the radio broadcast of the league, whilst doing some work out in the garden. Luckily the local pub has been willing to put on the state of origin and NRL grand finals, so I don’t feel completely out of it.

In about 6 weeks the first cricket Ashes test in due to commence at the Gabba, Brisbane. As we don’t have a TV in our unit (and even if we did, the games are not on free-to-air), it looks like this will be the first season of cricket I have missed in as long as I can remember.

In March/April next year, I have been lucky enough to be invited on a 3 week boat cruise through Caribbean to watch the cricket world cup. The games we have tickets for are excellent, Australia vs South Africa (St Kitts), West Indies vs Australia (Antigua), Australia vs India (Antigua), Australia vs England (Antigua). There will be 10 of us on the boat, two guys I know and the rest are their friends whom I have not yet met. It should be one of the best trips I’ve done. This is the type of boat we are taking http://www.cyoacharters.com/bahia464/index.asp.

    Wow Matthew, that is a gorgeous boat. What a great trip that will be. Good on ya. It’ll give you something pleasant to think about while you are cycling through the snow in January!!!
