African Expedition 2000
Saturday 15 January 2000
It was still raining lightly when we awoke from our hangovers next
morning. When we arrived at Centurion Park, things didnt look too promising. The
covers were on, the sky was grey, and the forecast was poor.
Eventually, the covers did come off, and the umpires said play
would start at 1:30. At 1:20, the skies opened. It boy, did they open ? It hammered down.
Play for the day was immediately abandoned
|What to do now ? Our taxi wasnt due to pick us
up again until 6:30. As luck would have it, across the road we saw a sign saying
Sportsmans pub. Inside, it was actually an indoor cricket school. But
there was a bar upstairs, and a pool table, so we immediately started drinking beer and
playing pool. At 5pm, the TVs started showing some English Premier League football -
Arsenal v Sunderland.
By 6:30, we were just a little bit
w##kered. So when we got back, we just carried on. Firstly at the bowling alley, and then
back to our favourite sports bar. By midnight, we were really w##kered. Not a bad day
