Had a Skype confernce call very, very, early local time yesterday with my boss in London and members of the development team in Sri Lanka and the pre-meeting chit chat was all about the upset of Australia by Sri Lankan in the Twenty20.
Everyone was happy. Funny thing I noticed though - my boss refuses to say the word Austalians - he will only say, "Sons of English convicts" when referring to ye lads down under. Don't know where that animosity comes from. The Sri Lankans, needless to say, were full of themselves. I'm not sure what pleased them most; the end of their 26 year long civil war or this cricket victory.
I mentioned, of course, that I have a lot of Aussie buds and that I needed to write about this in my blog ... and the flood gate of links to articles began to flood my in box. They really are a vindictive bunch. I tried to stand up for you I really did - but I felt queasy trying to defend a poofy game that I didn't give a rat's arse about and, besides, I really needed them to knock out some serious code this week.
by the way, what the hell does this tag line from The Telegraph mean?
A sign in the crowd after Australia's early exit from the World Twenty20 at the hands of Sri Lanka summed it up: "Enjoy Leicester, Ricky".Anyway, I guess I just wanted to say, WTF guys - y'all are embarrassing me in the work place.
Harden the fuck up, will ya.
