Chris Lewis Attempts To Smuggle 9 Pounds Of Cocaine, Gets Caught, Sent To Jail For 13 Unlucky Years

Bloody hell. Have you guys heard about this?

Chris Lewis, former England cricketer, was found with four kilograms of cocaine at Gatwick airport (maybe he should have tried Heathrow?). Anyway, he's been found guilty and sent to jail for thirteen years.

Chris Lewis has the unique quality of having been intimately involved in two of the most memorable and iconic moments in cricket history. On the wrong end each time, of course, but involved nonetheless.

Here he is getting bowled off what a started of as a wide (0:40):

And here he sets up Brian Lara to break Gary Sobers' record (2:40):

Good times.

I am going off topic. I just wanted to appreciate the quality content of your blog especially after my exhausting journey of browsing blogs of South Asians- both Indian and Pakistanis.

Generally, you can find a lot of cut-and-paste of newspapers analysis in the political blogs or they just blog about their personal stuff so much that one can get easily sick of it and start tearing your hair apart- for instance – detailed description of their walk, their breakfast and their dinner ( Victoria Beckham and Katie Holmes should take few tips from them),their two liner poems on their admiration for star bucks coffee and salvation army, few lines from the songs borrowed from an unknown singer or weird pictures which are impossible to interpret or boring history of the graduation gowns of their school their obsession for the characters of Sex and City and Gossip Girl. They just write meaningless crap but hats off to their loyal readers who still visit their blogs regularly and enjoy reading that crap.

Unlike your blog where I really enjoyed participating in meaningful discussions, I could only find three words to write comments on their blogs – ‘You have a great Blog’.
