We’re out!

April 26, 2007 at 8:04 am (cricket World Cup)

So our boys crashed and burned royally on the pitch. Sad, but true. Ag, I guess it’s not so bad. We got to the semis right? Naaah, who am I kidding….21-5 WTF???! Ok, now that I have that out of my system I will spend the rest of my time bothering with other, more important things and forget such a thing as the cricket World Cup ever existed. Sorry AB, but you just don’t do it for me anymore.

Mea Culpa

April 18, 2007 at 8:47 am (cricket World Cup, Uncategorized)

I have a confession to make… *blush* I’ve been watching cricket. And enjoying it. I know, I know. Not exactly the thing I thought I’d be saying especially after I slagged off those who’re slaves to the gentleman’s game (not that it’s so gentlemanly after the Woolmer murder) maar nou ja. Things change ok. So there – I’ve said it. I watched World Cup cricket and I liked it. AB is now my favourite sports dude in the world. Go AB!

The biggest boob

April 10, 2007 at 6:45 am (advertising, bimbo, cricket World Cup, patronising, sexist, VW Jetta)

There are currently two ads competing for my Ad I Hate Most award. The first is probably going to be off soon as it’s Cricket World Cup related.
If you’re not sure which one I’m talking about check in between matches – patriotic music playing in the background while our boys get dressed; fans waving flags and then…some bimbo sliding on a SA top while doing the requisite hair flip.
After Graham, Polly, Ntini and co have run (slow motion no less) down the passage we see girlfriend jiggling up and down so her ample cleavage can be shown across the nation. Nice.
The second one, which is definitely getting my knickers in a well-defined knot, is the VW Jetta ad where the loser asshole calls his date telling her he’s on his way then gets “caught” in a carnival. He then proceeds to shake it with all the scantily clad women while his date waits. Hours (I presume) later he rocks up at her house, and she, only after seeing his car, lets him in.
This is 2007 yet we still see this sexist bullshit on our screens. In a country where staying alive is an achievement this is a small thing to be irked about but, dammit, I get into a furious frenzy every time I see it. I can’t believe women are still treated as brainless bimbos who are only good for jiggling what their mama’s gave them and being so shallow they’d let a guy get away with anything because they have a cool car.I’m preparing to go to war.

Down with cricket…

March 28, 2007 at 6:18 am (cricket World Cup)

Raise your hand if you are sick of cricket. *Raised hand*. Everywhere I look or listen it’s cricket, cricket, cricket. I know it’s the World Cup but come on people, I don’t want another fraction of cricket creeping into my space. While writing this post I’ve heard the word cricket five times. Yes, FIVE friggin times. And when you’re typing 60 words per minute, five times is a lot. I’m boycotting cricket…right after I finish my cricket article. *sigh*
