Australian Domination

I've just watched Australia put the finishing touches on destroying England 5-0 to sweep the Ashes Series international cricket match. This is only the second time in the long history of this England-Australia rivalry that a team has swept the series 5-0. And Australia didn't just win, they dominated England.

While Cheryl supports England [because it's actually England & Wales], she bowed to the inevitable and gave her stuffed kangaroo a brush ("Sweep!") to hold while we watched this fifth test.

Cheryl and I split the cost of the DirectTV coverage and I got to see about half of the games, and I'm glad we did. I got to see some historic moments in cricket, and I think I now understand the attraction of the game. Oh, great, yet another sport to distract me.
