Ashes pictures for sale!
One of my best memories of the epic last Ashes would be the pic-of-the-day photos on Darryl's Ashes blog. I found these genuinely funny and suggested, half-seriously, that Darryl should put them up for auction on Channel Nine (God knows they have sold far worse for ludicrous sums of money and consequently have been the subject of jokes on TV). Anywho, Darryl has now put these up for sale on eBay and for a worthy cause too, with the proceeds going to to World Vision's Pakistan earthquake appeal. The bids started at about AUD $0.99, so they are quite a bargain ;) Here are the pics in question. I would have expected Billy Bowden's finger to be among the top five, but given that it's missed out, my favourite would be the last one in the list below. a. Lord's - "Adam Gilchrist celebrates the wicket of Freddie Flintoff - caught Gilchrist, bowled Warne for 3." b. Edgbaston - "Ricky Ponting trudges back to the pavilion after being dismissed for a duck." c. Old Trafford - "Michael Vaughan salutes the crowd after scoring a century at Old Trafford." d. Trent Bridge - "With a beer and a cigarette in one hand, and a ball in the other, Shane Warne very nearly won the game for Australia." e. The Oval - "Under dark and gloomy skies, Andrew Strauss is caught by Simon Katich close to the wicket. This photo is a re-enactment of the bad light."
