To be honest, the water bottle thing isn't a race thing - guys have been going crazy with the water bottles a lot this playoffs.

For odd historical reasons - especially given that I'm in general really thoroughly un-sportsy - I happen to know the rules (excuse me, "laws") of Cricket. At least at a basic functional level.

I could probably even do an introductory "Cricket for the Baseball Fan" explanation.

@Ken From Hyde Park yeah so apparently the 'expert' the defense called in did everything but urge a guilty verdict and life in prison for him. Good job outta the defense there.

Long story short - Prosecutor managed to get expert to say how Pistorius felt sorry that he shot his girlfriend - but that he wouldn't be sorry if it was someone else). Seriously the article I saw seemed to say he was screwed.

Favorite memory, I can't remember the year. It was the end of the marathon and Rix was the first DJ on after the end of the Hoof N Mouth and I remember him playing Thelonius Monk's version of "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes" - just perfect.
