The Ashes, or Christmas?

In many ways, they are quite similar:

  • The build up starts ridiculously early.
  • There’s always a lot of speculation about what you’ll get.
  • The TV ads are bollocks.
  • Ultimately, a lot of people are going to be disappointed.
  • And there’s always a shitload of clearing up afterwards.

At least if things start to not go your way in the Ashes, you can bail out from watching the rest of the series and carry on like it’s not happening.  Let’s see you try doing that when the Coca Cola ads start on the TV and the town centre breaks out its horrendous decorations.
