Stop living in the past 2005 Ashes was the series that got me into cricket. Such a great series of matches.
You bring up some history (ie the past 2 series) then say to stop living in the past... Regardless, you guys have won 3 series from the past 12 spanning like 23 years. Only getting 3 series? Thats pathetic.
handball - I played that when I was at school. It's hardly a sport. It's more of a hobby. But I guess when your country sucks at everything else you can list it as an achievement.
I don't really understand how you can have played the game and not consider it a sport. I'm living in France at the moment as you know and they are massive into handball over here. It's probably on a par with rugby as far as the popularity of team sports go, second or maybe just about third behind football. There's a handball arena in sight of my bedroom window.
I got really into it during the Olympics and followed the French team to the final and there were some fantastic games.
