.....and then I woke up to this

Australia 513 & 168-4 beat England 551-6 dec & 129 by six wickets

Australia won the second Ashes Test by six wickets and went 2-0 up in the series after bowling England out for 129 on day five in Adelaide.

England lost nine wickets for 60 in 43 overs, with Shane Warne taking 4-49 and key batsmen playing some poor shots.

Chasing 168 to win, Ricky Ponting (49) and Michael Hussey (61no) shared a third-wicket stand of 83 in 16 overs.

Ponting and Damien Martyn fell in quick succession but Michael Clarke joined Hussey to win with three overs left.

No team in history has lost after declaring on a higher total than England's 551-6 batting first in a Test.

Staggering. My football team is shit. My cricket team is shit. Hasn't exactly been the greatest start to a month. Boro at home tonight. If we dont score at least 5 goals, I plan to riot.
