Team ‘incapable of beating anyone’

The world cup cricket is coming soon – and with that Joe Black will be relocating to the islands in March – Bon Voyage son.

I have been reading a lot of articles about the WCC and just for your info I got my dollars on the West Indies cricket team – those black brothers are solid and yeah ladies if you want to see some fine brothers that’s the team to watch.

Anyway I just wanted to share with you an article I read about our beloved Zimbabwe Cricket team – and it seems jokes are rolling in about a team incapable of beating anyone.

The first joke I am sure you have heard it before it’s about a seven year old boy who was the center of a court room drama when he challenged a court ruling about who should have custody over him. The boy had a history of being beaten by his parents and grand parents. At the boy’s request he was awarded to the Zimbabwean cricket team. The boy’s lawyer successfully argued that they were incapable of beating anyone.

Here are some new ones that got me rolling on the floor –

Q: What do Brendan Taylor and Michael Jackson have in common?
A: They both wear gloves for no apparent reason

Q: What is the height of optimism?
A. A Zimbabwean batsman applying sunscreen

Q. What does Prosper Utseya put in his hand to make sure the next ball almost takes a wicket?
A. A bat

Q. What is the Zimbabwean version of a hat trick?
A. Three runs in three balls

Q. What do you call a Zimbabwean with 100 runs against his name?
A. A bowler

Q. Who in the Zimbabwean team spends most of the time on the crease?
A. The person who irons the team’s trousers

Anyway lets hope we will “insert some teams and crumble them”!!

    Problem is, with the dollar having fallen, the fee has now doubled. Trying to get it sorted out, but not really holding breath

  3. Hey Joe, I wanna start a new topic as I am not sport savvy. Not sure how to go about it though.

  5. Tomorrow Morning? Aint it thursday. Aren’t you working and isn’t the pub cosed? It IS Thursday right?

  6. Back to the Cricket… Apparently last weekend’s matches between Zim “A” and South Africa A was really crap. The atmosphere was all wrong, there was no Music, the game was wack… I miss the good o’l days when cricket matches were the places to hang out. You hardly watched the cricket, only turning to the pitch for the commossion that ensued when a (Zim) wicket fell or when a (Zim) player dropped a catch. You ended up missing half the match – for lack of a Big Screen for replays and stuff – and only watched the fall of wickets on the evening news. Bangladesh are in the Country and their captain reckons his team loves playing Zim coz it has improved their game…… that’s a given Dude, I think batting practise is meant to do that. Enough rant from me, let other’s have a go, hey Joe “Borat” Black?

  7. Borat? You call me Borat boy?

    I don’t know about you who went to ‘hang out’ us serious folks loved our cricket. You know the last time I had that feeling of total enjoyment at the cricket?

    Last season when we beat Bdesh 302 in an ODI series. That was great. But we were celebrating beating BANGLADESH.

    Anyway, it’s over, you know it’s over. They’re in town, the home series starts on Sunday and we’ll be there anyway, beers in hand, shouting like idiots as usual.

  8. Black, i just forwarded an email to ya from your name sake. seems the link from this blog has his email address “redacted” instead of redacted. You might want to check it out. He says he been receiving loads of your stuff.
