Kitchener’s Curse

March 29, 2012 in Uncategorized

It seems that not only TruvanHugo posesses that regrettable talent called “the kiss of death”. Kitchener showed promise in the Doomsday department with his now legendary “One month to go” post in November 2010. Predicting the manshaming of the Springboks at Twickenham backfired spectacularly.


That was followed with the equally ripping “I can’t wait for the real cricket to start’ post. The “real” cricket resulted in England losing 3-0 to lowly rated Pakistan early this year.


Sealing England’s fate yet again Kitchener declared with bravado halfway through the first morning’s play in Galle that he was mightily pleased with the “biffing” being dished out to the Sri Lankans by Her Majesty’s XI.
