So England have lost the Ashes series 5-0. I am utterly dejected. I know caring about sport is silly, I know caring about a sport that almost no-one else does is very silly, and I also know caring about a sport as silly as cricket is very very silly. But I can't help myself, I've always loved it and there is no trophy in any sport that I get more excited about than The Ashes. For England to get white-washed after having won it last time (which was a rarity in itself) is just too much to bear. That is all.
