Public Address regular Haydn Green yells a lot but takes time out from that hobby to give his observations on the sporting world and it's use of mirco blogging tool Twitter.
Discussing American Footballer Kerry Rhodes’s use of twitter Mr Green writes:
"the coolest thing this week was watching the Eagles Giants play-off game on the internet and sending Rhodes a casual tweet: "@kerryrhodes You gotta be loving watching the Eagles secondary" and got a response "@hadyngreen brian dawkins isnt playing well eli is missing recievers behind him but #27 and asante samuels is playing well". To put it in perspective this is like discussing scrums with Carl Hayman or fielding set-ups with Dan Vettori"
Taking Mr Green’s commentary further, maybe Daniel Vettori should use Twitter in game. Taking an iphone from his pocket in between balls, he could twit "Shit. Gayle's Carved Southee for 16 runs. What ball should he bowl now?" and us know-alls could take time out from cricinfo and go "@dantheman one with Pace, Hate, Rhythm, Off Stump and Lillee" or "@dantheman bowl a Jaffa lolz!!;P" or "@dantheman should have selected O'Brien Danny Boy".
The same twit practice could be applied to Dan Carter at half time "@DanIwearJockies Don't Kick it, Pass it!" or the always sage, ""@DanIwearJockies Don't Pass it, Kick it"
One All Black who probably will never Twitter is Olo Brown. Man that guy was like the quietest front rower ever.
One thing from yesterday’s rained out Black Caps vs the Windies was the use of runners to inform the batsmen of the runs needed per over in case of rain and the Duck Worth Lewis Method was used to decide a winner. It takes up time that the batsmen need. Instead of all that palava with fake glove changes etc, Vettori could have just twittered to Taylor "@NZBattingSaviour Hit some runs man, its gonna rain" to which Taylor could have twittered back "@dantheman if you’d have picked O’Brien we would not be in this mess!"
