I think the best part is that the devil has THREE English dykes, plus a fourth in Scotland.

But now I know that the team names are very strange.
The New Zealand Black Caps really drew the short straw when it comes to New Zealand's Black-related national team names. But they have the best uniforms so it evens out.

And if I may be curious, where are you from anyway?

Some people think it was in reaction to the meteorite impact at the end of the Cretaceous. That would be seriously cool.



I wish I could remember the name of this hilarious English town I went through in a train...

I think the Black Cocks won the Black-something name contest though.
