Some cricket and my hectic schedule

hello everybody!!!!!!!!!!!

For those of you who dint know... i got my GA...
GA stands for Graduate Assistantship.....

in the english department....
lotsa big shots....
and the best part of my job is that i get to interact with them as their colleague...
i have my own room... its full of junk computers and its organs...
u guys can visit http://www.uic.edu/depts/engl if u wanna know more about my
colleagues and have a look at their faces....
my boss's name is Nancy Gebhardt, a stereotypical old american lady.
Almost everyone around me is very nice....

okie lets talk about some cricket...

I'm now part of a cricket team....
We are called advancers...

first match... we won... we played in astro turf.. awesome out field....
we scored 223 in 40 overs and they were allout for around 109 i guess...
i scored 8 opening the innings and was out driving a ball upishly straight into the hands of cover fieldsmen...
dint bowl... but i think i can better than many of my teams' bowlers...
i just coiudln't ask for them to give me a chance... they are all unlces... if u know
what i mean!!!!

second match... we lost ... but i played well... again in astroturf and this pitch was much faster than the older one....
scored 22 unbeaten runs.. i came as 7 down batsman and i had to play with the tail...
i had a hit in my crouch area... guys who play cricket know that its not funny
to get your balls wacked by the cricket balls.. though i had the cup in place it still tickled and i
had to gasp for breathe for a feww minutes....
i also kept wickets...
i dropped the openers catch when he was in knot and he went on to score 61 in 3o odd balls...
we lost the match only because of that....
we came pretty close though...

for scores click here
our batting scores is not updated yet and i guess it wont ever be updated but
i know the reader will believe me....
