  • Praise everybody, I say to such: never be squeamish, but speak out your compliment both point-blank in a man's face, and behind his back, when you know there is a reasonable chance of his hearing it again. Never lose a chance of saying a kind word. As Collingwood never saw a vacant place in his estate but he took an acorn out of his pocket and popped it in; so deal with your compliments through life. An acorn costs nothing; but it may sprout into a prodigious bit of timber.

Only for Bowden to rule, wrongly, that Lee had no balled. Oh dear oh dear, Bowden is having a shocker. Collingwood dabs a single, and then Pietersen twice thumps Lee straight down the ground. Incredible cricket I've put 100 on Australia to win in the same way I did for the Rugby World Cup final, ... It matters so much that we win that I want some financial compensation to drown my sorrows if we lose. Anyone else have some better ways of reducing the pain of such sporting events.

  • Obviously we had been keen to negotiate a two-year contract for Jeff but when Collingwood came in with a four-year deal our hand was forced somewhat. We never wanted to lose Jeff to another club, but we certainly did not want to risk losing him for nothing.
