so those pesky Aussies…

have won back The Ashes.

after a fantastic battle last year, where England took back the Ashes after 18 years (and the first home victory in 20), the not-unanticipated Australian victory is still disheartening.

not content just to lose, the English side lost in three straight Tests. though there are to be two more Tests in this series, it will now be three more years before England has a chance to once again bring the Ashes home.

also, for the uninitiated, here’s a good explanation of the game. so you can be ready for 2009.
