One of my favourite moments was the look of utter disbelief on Lunchbox's face. The world had turned upside down! Bashers winning! What next?
Who was the lumberjack - this needs to be written about for our Grandkids to enjoy.
If anyone is travelling in a taxi for the next two weeks kindly ask the drvier if he recently dropped of a guy who looked like the american indian out of the Vilalge people wearing a birthday boy hat. And if he did, ask to look in his boot for Sheyan's cricekt bag.
Well done boys, I got stuck in Jin Qiao for the whole day working. Will check tomorrow for Sheyan's kit and jersey at Hong Qiao, but for now it's not looking good. Sponsorship for the HK 6's has been confirmed so get in there and see if we can do better than the Spoon semi loss of last year.
Poor Dipso....taxi driver will probably find the gear and think all the stuff is sex toys or something. Happy Bday anyway mate, at least we are the CHAMPIONS. Got into work late today; hilarious drunk messages on my phone this morning(that I sent). Responses were in Russian so getting translated now. Stats we need a match report for the ages. Go Bashers!
The Bus, the Eskie, the Geishas, the Family club, Thursday night trainings, Pub crawl thereafter, the Jacket and the Tie,the Spirit as a team,the heart and soul of Shanghai Cricket, being talked about in the International forums and the 2009 SCC Premiership Champions. Cynosure to some and Pain in the ... for many others. Thanks to all the Bashers' admirers/well wishers and Balls to the Anti Bashers. Let it be known "Bashers are the Champions-On and Off the field".
From Ed Molony, Basher #18 , Captain of the 2007 Bashers and games won as captain: 0.
To: Bashers present
cc: a few Bashers of old
Finally the news has filtered through to Singapore!
F**k me the Bashers did it!!!! Congratulations lads, the league title goes into the trophy cabinet (you'll have to get one of those made).
Seems alot has changed since the days of my captaincy which will no doubt be entered into the chapter titled 'The Bashers dark days'. Although i like to think we were building a foundation for just this moment.
Would love to be in Shanghai right now telling Tsesmelis/Newton/Sanjay exactly what we've all been wanting to say for sometime.......Go F**k yourselves!
Am out with Sheyan tonight so will have a few beers to celebrate (although he is asking for an early night as he's a bit tired.......violins)
I dont have many Bashers email addresses anymore so please congratulate anyone i have missed off. Also not sure how to write a message on the wedsite/blog.
A new era boys - fantastic!
Thanks Sheyan, obviously my time "guiding" the team was pretty unmemorable (skipper 2006 and 2007!) and i am sure we had a win or two somewhere! (Neal W and proof?). Thankfully things have clearly improved in the Basher's camp. Well done boys.
