Cricket KTP - Challenges

Unread postby Baffers » Thu Feb 14, 2013 10:02 pm

Hi guys...

For those of you that have not joined the cricket in previous years there is a few small traditions that we developed.

One of these is the challenges or pledges...

So I thought this year since I won't be there I will start with some pledges...

1. If the yellow mankini appears I will personally give R100 toward the cricket. (Anyone else for this?)

2. The Thick Knee Cricketer challenge. (Basically one of the cricketers has to develop an injury other than being stiff... For Example - Bruise, carried of field on stretcher, struck in the nads by a fastball, running into the stumps and impaling oneself with a bad attempt at a Jonty Rhodes dive...) - If that happens I will also donate R50

If anyone feels like putting up another challenge / pledge feel free to place it here and I will add it... PM me if you like.
At the end of it all you don't want to go into the grave peacefully and quietly in well preserved body... You want to go sort off skidding in sideways, full of bruises and scratches saying: "Man what a ride!!!"

Since I am going to be wicket keeper, I might be betting on my own demise.

I started bikrum yoga last week, so when you see me I will be a lean, mean, batting machine :twisted:

Bikrum yoga is 90 minutes of yoga in 40 degrees temperature at 60 percent humidity. It is mean.

Will back you with the yellow mankini with R50

And if any male forumite is daring enough to show himself in front of the webcam as a traditional SAN with bow i will add another R200.
