    From a Lancastrian.

    Hope you have had a great day and are getting the right side of a couple of "John Smiths" Still brewed in Tadcaster I assume?

    A superb performance from Bresnan - he was unlucky not to be chosen for Lords but having picked Broad, the rest is history and I think Bresnan has just guaranteed his place. An altogether massive performance by the England bowling attack, the first time in decades that we have a seam attack (with reserves of humungous quality) that is up there with the best in the world.

    Definition of a Yorkshireman = Scotsman with the generosity removed :D

    And the Yorkshireman's Prayer

    'Hear all, see all, say nowt;
    Eyt all, sup all, pay nowt;
    and if tha ever does owt for nowt, do it for thissen.'"
