...actually managed to do it. The Burnley Bumpkin actually managed to rock up to a cricket ground where everything was in his favour and not blow it. A somewhat green and undercooked Sri Lanka side helped.
...another Yorkshire legend gone. The youngest and probably hardest and bravest man to play test cricket has died aged 84. “The start of the cricket season was the sound of leather on Brian Close”
...runs. How bad are India at Test cricket? They had England one nil down, down and out, and walk away with a 3-1 series defeat with the most miserable displays you've seen.
...great. England football team at the World Cup, the cricket team against Sri Lanka and now India, the rugby teams against the southern hemisphere - some say that Murray berk at Wimbledon. Now the cycling is imploding.

...pitch. England were handed the ideal Headingley pitch for them to wrap up the two match series against Sri Lanka, it may have come down to the last over again but they blew it.

...respect. Throughout the whole of this last Ashes test match the pundits told us Onions should have been picked instead of Tim Bresnan. What would have happened if they got their wish.
...not born in God's own county. Still, tha can still celebrate Yorkshire Day.
...seen? The only way to improve this Aussie touring side is to get all the old blokes in the crowd and media boxes to don the baggy green cap and get back out on the pitch.
...Root. Yet again another England bowler stood on the podium collecting the man of the match award after skittling New Zealand out when they would have been in that position if Joe root hadn't saved England from a batting collapse.
...England. Tykes doing not bad in their return to the County Championship top flight, while their players are away helping England get back on the winning track.
...nah then. It were grand news when announced a few weeks back that the 2014 Tour de France Grand Départ would start and take in two stages in Yorkshire.
...August 1st. Now where'e the flat cap, ferrets an' whippet.
...like all the best things are. Stuart Lancaster along with the England team he put together during this 6 Nations tournament have made a great deal about how it all came about in Leeds and it led to Ireland's thumping at Twickenham.
