Siddle goes to disneyland

Siddle goes to Disneyland

After the 2009 Ashes, Siddle and his lady went to Eurodisney.

Now the closest I’ve been to visiting Eurodisney is the simpson’s episode where they show Euro Itchy and Scratchyland.  I can only assume it is some weird not quite right version of Disney that people generally avoid.

When you lose an Ashes, it is the sort of place you go to.

Siddle hasn’t won this Ashes for Australia, he may not have even won this test, but he sure as shit deserves something better than Eurodisney next trip.  Disney World at least.

Today he was definitely riding the magic mountain, butt fucking Mickey and kicking the frozen head of Walt around.

All week people have been asking me why Siddle has been picked.  They’ve told me all the different ways he is rubbish.

They probably won’t say that now.

They’ll use my Sizzle nickname.

They’ll offer him their daughters.

They’ll make him trend on twitter.

They’ll bow down before him and pledge their allegiance to the peoples democratic republic of Victoria.

That’s what days like today do to test players.  They turn them from one of the players everyone takes the piss out of, to the one little boys pretend to be.

It’s easy for a kid to pretend to be Siddle, they just need run face first into a wall for a while, put a permanent smimace (smile grimace) and try as hard as they can.

I’ve always liked Siddle because of his Victorianess, his heart and the fact that he takes his wickets bunched together, now I like him more because he took a hat trick and a 7 wicket haul (I refuse to take a wicket off him cause Haddin can’t catch) in the first test of an Ashes.

I am wearing my collar up in honour of the great man.

    If Siddle was to wear a bag on his head or a mask he wouldn’t take many wickets. Batsmen are naturally terrified that they are under attack from a raging mutant pig that they momentarily take their eye off the ball.

  2. I’ve heard this somewhere before: “…the hero, I love him I wanna boof him get him up here… and he’s a Victorian and so am I and I’m f**king proud of it”

    Gotta admit, I rated Dougie and Rhino above him.

    I admit i was wrong.

    Doherty looked alright, but O’Keefe is the one to watch out for. Mark my words, the kid can really play with both bat and ball. Saw him 3-4 years ago in a second XI match at Manuka and rated him then as a future Australian player.

    Jrod, Were you walking through the Brisbane CBD with another dude at about 8:30 this morning? We’ve never met before, just thought I recognised you from net photos but wasn’t sure that you were in Brisbane. If it was you I’m ashamed I didn’t say something because I’ve always wanted to punch you. On the other hand I’m a bit of a pussy really so I probably wouldn’t have done anything. Strangely I’ve also had the urge to buy you a beer and talk some cricket so I feel ashamed again. On the opposite side of the fence I wouldn’t want to have come on to strong abd wierded you out. In any case enjoy your stay.

  5. I first saw the Sizzler bowling in India against India A during the 2-0 Kumble farewell series. Was impressed by his line and importantly the fullish length. Never mind that he was later spanked by No(s)hit Sharma and Virat Kohli.

    In a way, the chap was always underrated by everyone according to me. After today, only an idiot would keep on doing the same.

    All hail the Sizzler.

    Jamie you have sexy thoughts
    I was one of the Unvics as well, pretty disappointed that Dougie wouldn’t spread his dougness on the first day. But the maw of death proved to be unstoppable. Made it till tea, missed the hat-trick. Dang. :/ I hope Kato will get a ton.

    Now he’s bound to join the greats like Dominic Cork and Ryan Sidebottom…
