BASH IN A SMASH CRITICS who say Twenty20 cricket is weening out the longer form of the game ate their words during the second Test between Australia and New Zealand, but they would have been cheekily smiling when the Big Bash launched last weekend. While the crowd could have fi t into Howell Oval, the TV ratings were a hit as viewers helped the match between the Melbourne Stars and Sydney Thunder reach the fourth highest in subscription TV history. Perhaps it was the chance to see Liz Hurley on a cricket pitch or the colourful jerseys, but the big men organising the Bash have got a gem on their hands this year.
PANTHERS IN THE NUDE..AL
MOST WOMEN were treated to a spectacle at Centrebet Stadium when eight Panthers players stripped down (up top at least) and had jerseys painted onto them for a training run. It was all in response to a cheeky tweet received by General Manager Gus Gould, proving Penrith’s increased focus on social media and fan interaction. I’m sure it didn’t take much begging for Sandor to get his gear off.
INDIANS SWAM MCG A group of Indians are trading in the ‘hommmmmm’ for a noisy ruckus as the ‘Swami Army’ rolls into town. They claim to be a response to the English Barmy Army (original, huh?) whose chants can become frustrating when the Poms are in form with the bat. The ‘Swami Army’ are better known for meditating in the streets of Delhi so we aren’t sure how intimidating they will be, or whether Brett Lee will be tempted into donning a Bollywood costume...ag
WORST KEPT SECRET TEAMMATES are meant to have your back....right? American basketball legend Kobe Bryant learnt the hard way that locker room talk isn’t always sacred. After confessing to fellow Lakers stars that he had cheated on his wife ‘multiple times’, Bryant received a fi le suit for divorce. It turns out the Lakers players had told their wives, who passed on the bad news to Mrs Bryant.
MIND OF ITS OWN YOU wouldn’t believe it if it hit you in the back of the head. Well, it
did for a group of people at the end of an American Football game last week when a driver-less cart ran them over on the fi eld. A stadium attendant was driving the cart to pick up fi eld markings when he stepped off the vehicle, unaware that it was still in drive. Perhaps we shouldn’t laugh as some injuries were sustained, but that old adage keeps rising-‘only in America’.
