The Mad Monk thinks the scribe is a damn pest who does not allow doing his thing his way. So he meets up with the bookie man and his servile servant -- the Doubting Thomas and hatches a plot. Then he tells the scribe if you want to meet us come over to the Citadel where we would give five minutes of our time. This too comes one month before the war begins. Then the senior scribes think it is no point wearing the trunks with still a mile away from the pool. So the seniors stay away and the whole episode at the Citadel becomes a huge farce.
Some times the Mad Monk goes berserk.

But when Big B was asked togo the media man was also shown the door. Now the Small B has called the same media man and has appointed a whole lot ofofficials to tackle the situations that may arise. Some new names too have been given to these posts. So it is a case of the Small B following the Big B.

Looking after paddy now
The National Sports Festival in Kandy drew a lot of attention recently. However the biggest set back seems that a certain official who had want a commission for putting the athletic types to certain hotels had walked into a hotel, which is being owned bya Big Wig in sporting circles, and had demanded the commission. This has fallen on the ears of the Man in Charge now and he has ordered that this particular individual be transferred to look after paddy, which is very much scarce these days!
Too many LBWs
An engrossing match was on and the loud speaker started praising the umpire who was very good at giving LBWs. The umpire had walked to the man who was at the loud speaker and had given him a piece of his mind. It so happened that the umpire was the coach of one of the teams playing this key junior game. With the loud speaker going to town on the achievements of the umpire it was unearthed that he was the coach of this particular team!
