Speck has some stickers running along what I guessed was the main drag. Also, a few tags and a throw from some crew I wanna say is called KMT or KWT or something? (Sorry, I forgot.) But mostly Speck.

And Honolulu is way more crushed than I expected.

Other shit I need to say, but I’ll never get around to, so as long as I’m here, why don’t I mention

“The cricket world is now inhabited by flat-track bullies … batsmen brought up on a glut of short-form cricket and easy Twenty20 money who are unwilling or unable to deal with the moving ball.

“That 23 wickets can fall on a single day of Test cricket in this modern age of covered pitches and full-time professional players is an indictment on every batsman involved.

“Most worrying of all, this is not an aberration but increasingly Australia’s norm as soon as the ball starts to move consistently.

“It’s the third time in little more than a year that Australia has been bowled out for under 100 once the ball started to deviate.

“Whatever hollow platitudes administrators and players may mumble about Test cricket being the pinnacle of the game, it is increasingly being treated with contempt.

“This South Africa-Australia Test series is a beacon to the marginalisation of the once-sacred game.

“Test cricket is called Test cricket because it is the ultimate test of skill and courage.”
