It's just not cricket!

Via MarkW, this:

Gunmen have attacked a bus carrying the Sri Lankan cricket team on its way to play in the Pakistani city of Lahore.

At least five members of the Sri Lankan cricket team were injured - two from bullets - and five Pakistani policemen escorting the team bus were killed.

Pakistani officials said about 12 gunmen were involved and grenades and rocket launchers have been recovered.

That's one way of making sure your team wins, I guess.

A word to the wise, chaps: cricket just isn't that important. If you want to make a real stir, go after the soccer players.

Chelsea would be a good place to start, and I'm not talking about the King's Road.

Yeah, lets have more jokes about dead foreigners. 'Cos they're really funny.

If any good is to come out of this I hope it is the suspension of the Pakistan Bob-Slay team from all cricket. They are the worlds biggest cheats, worst sports, they murdered their coach and are humourless pricks.

no use going after British soccer players though, they are as rare as rocking horse shit.

Barnsley Bill said...

Screech, surely you are mistaken. England is full of fat twunts wearing nylon soccer shirts.

Turns out the Pakistan team bus was inexplicably delayed and did not travel alongside the sri lankan bus as it had done the previous two days.
That stinks.
Sorry for the whoring OBO, but I have posted the story at my place if anybody wants to read it.
