Brendon McCullum triple ton poem

This year after being a spectator at the Basin Test, I wrote the following tribute to New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum. What a summer it was for New Zealand's cricketers and fans.


Triple Glory

And there it goes, racing from the bat …
passes point … then runs all the way to the fence,
the joy and future of New Zealand cricket
rising with it. Baz does what no Kiwi could before,

the triple. Now he moves in to the elite of
Test cricket’s triple hundred club. On TV, Crowe
expresses relief that the record has been wrested.
Hogan remembers his snick, and Baz delivers.

Doubters may be stunned, but loyal fans
knew Brendon’s heart was always in the job.
Baz may inspire a new generation like Crowe
and Hadlee before him. The Indian summer

has arrived for cricketers and fans alike.
Just one innings, one moment, is all it takes
to etch a name in history. Baz is there now,
a true captain, and no one can take it from him.

NZ v India, Second Test, Basin Reserve, 18 February 2014

  5. Hello Miss, Sir
    You are in despair because you lack the financial means to reach your dreams. And even worse, your bank refuses you a loan and all this makes you feel suicidal. You see your damn life. You feel blocked and you can not move because of lack of financial means. And yes! I come to give you joy in my heart by this testimony. Offered it is not a simple testimony and to be more precise, I speak to you of my lived experience. A great lady has given me this joy and it is my turn to let you know that my joy is shared. Alice Gibson
    I was able to make a loan of a large sum that I prefer to keep for myself. This loan is made between private and the big lady who allowed me to have this loan is named Mrs. JANIQUE LOUISE ANNICK CHANTRENS and the private address of this great lady is:
    I advise you to contact her, talk about your problems and ask for a loan between individuals. I assure you and I guarantee you that this great lady will give you the joy of the heart.

  6. Rick And Morty follows the animated, interdimensional adventures of alcoholic scientist Rick Sanchez and his grandson Morty. Due to Rick’s selfish, nihilistic behavior, these adventures often spiral out of control in horrifying ways, leaving Morty and his family with severe mental scars. Rick And Morty’s mix of sharp comic writing and fascinating sci-fi premises quickly saw it become a huge cult favorite.
    Should I let me 12-year old son watch Rick and Morty?
    Who is your favorite side character from Rick and Morty?
    Why is Rick and Morty so critically acclaimed?
    Who is your favorite side character from Rick and Morty?
    What was your favorite Rick and Morty moment?
    Fans had a long wait between Rick And Morty season 2 and 3, with the final scene of the second season finding recurring character Mr. Poopybutthole breaking the fourth wall to tease the show might not be back for “a year and a half.” Season 2’s finale “The Wedding Squanchers” ended on a major cliffhanger, with Rick turning himself into the Galactic Federation to save his family. Adult Swim would later shock fans by suddenly airing Rick And Morty season 3 episode 1 on April 1, 2017, on a loop with no promotion. In a meta twist, this also matched the “year and a half” Mr. Poopybutthole had previously warned fans would have to wait.
