Bowling challenge - celebrity appearance!

The kack-handed bowling challenge gathers pace.

Perhaps it is because we improved the prize at stake, I don't know. Anyway, we are delighted to have received a video from the one and only ... Steve Harmison. Good on him. It's not the best of efforts, but it's all about taking part. We might send him some shoe whitener anyway.

Bowling challenge - exciting new Christmas prize

As it's Christmas, we've decided to improve the prize on offer for anyone talented enough to match Cow Corner's "BOWLING CHALLENGE" (see the videos posted last week).

There'll now be a tube of shoe whitener for the lucky winner. So pick up the ball in your "wrong" hand and get bowling...

Shoe whitener

We have a number of things that are really difficult to sell. But what has been THE worst performing product in the history of COW CORNER. Shoe whitener?

It was my idea. I said we needed some and we bought a pack of 12. In two years we have sold ... 1 tube of the stuff. Surely the bloke had another use for it, NOT cricket-shoe related.

Shoe whitener: for people who wear leather cricket shoes and who want to ensure they are kept sparklingly white.

In the world of shoe whitener do people still wear cotton flannels and woollen cricket sweaters? Are they either clean shaven or sporting a splendid set of whiskers? Batsmen probably smoke at the crease. And they don't cheat. And maybe there are wives making cricket teas. And there aren't competitive league games. And the draw wouldn't have been abolished in ESCA (our local league).
