KARAOKE SONG - Impossible to drink enough beer to get me singing

FUNNIEST SIGHT IN CRICKET - Chopper Noble's wicket keeping; Pixie trying to strap a pillow to his chest before facing Tony Gray; Mooey's pants (more stripey than a zebra); Baz "my studs are too long" Barry falling over and getting run out at Barkisland; Armo's clever bouncer/yorker combinations; Pixie "Youve got a hard punch" Parker thumping a Holmfirth supporter; Mooey's catching - diabolical how he ever won the catching prize!; Ervine falling over at Slawit; Pixie whenever he played at Shat; Pixie chucking up on the field - far too many to mention them all

WHAT MIGHT THE OPPOSITION SAY TO YOU - You don't hit it hard for a fat lad - genuine quote from a Townville player before I smacked it everwhere

CRICKET CLAIM TO FAME - An entry in the Scholes "all time lardy XI" - always spurred me on to score a few against them
