While some observers can’t wait to wave goodbye to one batting legend (I’m talking about you, Tim Kurkjian), another sport’s icon received a far less conflicted going-away party. With Sunday’s 19 run victory over India, Brian Lara’s final One Day International as the West Indies’ captain saw the Windies take 4 of series’ 5 matches.
There was a Test Match of some import taking place at Edgbaston this weekend, but I’m hesitant to say much more about it. Short of running more Northwestern soccer hazing jpegs, nothing creates server strain in CSTB-land quite like passing references to K—n P——-n. Seriously. Not even Huckapoo, Carmelo/LaLa and Jackie Christie combined have accounted for as much traffic, which either says something about the England cricket team’s massive leap in popularity over the past year or it (more likely) indicates that K.P. scores awfully high on the Cricketeer I’d Like To Fuck (C.I.L.F.) scale for many intrepid Google-abusers.
