I had a great day yesterday, it revolved around going to the cricket but that was the least of it really.
Swimming in Manuka Pool, sitting in the baking sun, drinking beer and joking around in a fun crowd, lunch at the Kingston Hotel, cycling around the lake after the game, sacking out on Aspen Island with friends and beers watching the shooting stars.
Not merely a good day, but a great day.
It’s just a shame the central part of it, watching the cricket at Manuka Oval was again marred by the staggering incompetence of the muppets who run the ground.
Running out of beer just an hour after play starts should not happen.
In 37 degree heat they should not be caught out with inadequate pass-outs at the innings break leading to hundreds being crammed together like cattle against the gate chanting “let us out”.
Given that public flogging is apparently out of the question an exemplary sacking should be made, or at least a public apology.
It’s in the calendar, they know how many people are coming, if they’re incapable of catering to that they should go and someone brought in who knows what they’re doing.
