Without a doubt, the greatest sporting event of the year thus far, and almost surely for the full year, is the Ashes series. The finale begins tomorrow at the Kennington Oval. I, like countless others around the globe, will be following the over-by-over updates via Internet while pretending to work, and that's when I can't get away with simply listening to the radio broadcast on the BBC's website outright. And I've tried to schedule my flight to London on Sunday (Sept. 11; I'm not superstitious, though) to minimize the chance that I'll be in the air during a crucial moment. If the Test goes the distance, I'm sure people at the facility where I'll be in hearings all day Monday will be shuttling in and out with updates.
