Head down the basin reserve and you may just get yourself a photo opportunity

From the live cricket commentary on cricinfo.com:

"Billy Corgan from the Smashing Pumpkins has been spotted in the crowd. He doesn't look overly interested in the cricket, but more so than his female companion who couldn't be looking more vacant or anaemic if she tried"

You better hurry though - at the rate NZ are losing wickets the game will be over before lunch

he better be wearing his big bucket hat, or he'll get burnt to a crisp.

And I don't want to see Bollster on Saturday all red and blotchy.

Is this the test against England, there will be a lot of pale burnt Englishmen out there so he'll just blend into the crowd

and it's all over ... Fonz might appreciate this follow up comment

Richard Medlicott: "I note Billy Coragn has been spotted in the crowd, although are you sure its not Chris Martin getting some air before he goes in? They were separated at birth, (as was Sidebottom and Sideshow Bob)"

Why would he go to watch the last day of a test match that was already over. Free beer for me at the local irish today, except that green Guinness is stupid.

Holy LOL.
A panama hat and man-pris.

Never mind that, though...cricket? Is he really such a sick fuck about baseball that he'll watch anything played vaguely like it? :D

cricket is far superior. Comes from the civilized world of England, y'see.

by the looks of it, he's got some sort of pass. Like he actually wanted to go.
