Watch out Channel 9, zero cricket is here!

Well, yesterday was pretty special. Sam and Nick (a couple of guys from my work) came round and we kicked back and yacked over a couple of cans of coke zero. Nick was a bit down because his olds had been giving him a hard time about his (non-)direction in life. They're constantly bugging him to get a better job, a girlfriend and then settle down and pop out some grandkids. It's pretty much the same with my parents - they just don't get it. Life's different now for us guys, I'd rather see the world and have some fun rather than settle down to some sort of picket-fenced (in) fantasy.

To lighten the mood a bit, Dave thought we may as well get out of the house and play a game of street cricket. We all picked an Aussie player to be - it was pretty funny. Nick was Warnie, Dave was Punter, Sam was Bing. Naturally, I was Mr Cricket. It was a real blast. Well, at least until 'Bing' smacked the ball right into my neighbours car window, smashing into a few thousand pieces.

Why can't your neighbours wind down their car windows when you and your mates a having a friendly hit?

Anyway, the owner of the car, Reece, came out, and he wasn't too happy. We were all looking pretty sheepish as he inspected the damage. Reece picked the ball out of the car and looked up at us, 'Right,' he said, 'my bowl.' It was a great moment, and he got Bing out with his very first ball!

Reece turned out to be a really great guy. When I asked him why he didn't care about his car window, he said that he saw we were using a coke zero bottle for stumps and said he was a big fan of the drink and the zero movement website. Suffice to say, he had zero problems with our game of cricket and us living life the zero way. Later, on a couple of other guys (Brett and Nick T) joined the match. It was awesome! We played for a couple of hours and we're going to make it a regular thing. Next week, Nick T even threatened to wheel his BBQ over and cook some snags while we play. Nice!

Mates, having a great time, with zero worries, and zero consequences. It doesn't get much better than that...

WOW! You're obviously not either a) employees of Coke, or b) looking to promote coke.
You're just a fan? Bullshit!
"We sat back with a few cans of Coke". An Aussie would say beer instead of Coke, unless they were advertising it.

Do you guys realise the crap Coke puts in zero? There's almost as much crap here. Makes me suspicious...

why don't you SNORT some coke instead of drinking it? It's far more "real man" as this is just an advertising site and only a coked up, pony tailed ad person could think this was going to work...

Sam, Nick, Jase and Dave?

Holy shit, it's got to be you guys. It couldn't be a coincidence - MY crew's names are Sam, Nick, Jase and Dave. Awesome!

When did you guys find out about this blogging thing? Isn't it awesome?

That cricket thing was the BEST FUN. Especially when we went for beers afterwards. Ah, beer. There's no drink like it, is there?

zero life, zero career prospects - you two 'aussie blokes' are really shooting for the stars, aren't you? then again, i suppose you could get a job as an advertising jerk-off who thinks this campaign is a good idea!

Translation time! American writers often get things wrong with slang.

Well, yesterday was pretty special. Sam and Nick (a couple of mates from work) came round and we kicked back and had a yarn over a coupla tinnies. Nick was a bit down because his olds had been giving him a hard time about him screwing about with life. They're constantly bugging him to get a better job, a girlfriend and then settle down and pop out some grandkids. It's pretty much the same with my parents - they just don't get it. Life's different now for us blokes, I'd rather see the world and have some fun rather than settle down to a ball and chain.

To lighten the mood a bit, Dave thought we may as well get out of the house and play a game of street massage. It was awesome! We rubbed each others backs like flaming galahs for a couple of hours and we're going to make it a regular thing. Next week, Nick T even threatened to wheel his BBQ over and cook some snags while we touch each other like poofters. Nice!
