I have a feeling this has something to do with cricket and being an American, I'm perfectly clueless. To us, cricket is a retarded form of baseball.

I think Reggo's got you thoroughly outclassed when it comes to this particular skill!
I think Ian suggested he'd have no difficulty with that.

I know...

Axver is going to start tearing out your throat.

Just a warning.

OK, firstly, in cricket, the amount of grass on the wicket is something important to know, as it dictates what the bowling conditions will be like. A grassy wicket is slower than one that's rock-hard. And Ian and I love our cricket.

Now, this discussion about underaged girls came up in a past thread. Ian made a (sarcastic!) comment about "well, as long as there's grass on the wicket ..."

I've never let him live it down. And I will never listen to a pitch report in quite the same way again.

Wouldn't surprise me! I was here pretty much all day yesterday, on and off. And he kept doing that the whole time 'cause I won't let him in my room.
(He has a habit of darting under the bed and staying under there for hours, unlike my OTHER cat who will actually lay ON the bed for the entire day.)

Baseball is a watered down bullshit sport for comatose Americans who lack the mental capacity to handle cricket.

(This is polite compared to my thoughts on American pansyball vs rugby. Who's shocked that I'm a sports elitist/prick?)

Somehow, I kinda had a feeling it'd be something like that.

If it helps me out any, I hate pretty much all American sports.
Never really watched much of any others to know so I'm just not a sports person for the time being.

Baseball, American pansyball, and NASCAR all incur my wrath. No problem with nor fondness for basketball. Ice hockey looks like a decent sport.

Though I'm sure I can find common ground with even the most fanatical baseball fan when I say that the biggest bullshit "sport" out there is synchronised swimming.

Rugby is badass. No helmets, longer field, screwier rules

I've tried to understand cricket. Really, I have. But they don't show it on TV here, so reading about it kinda makes me

I was just about to add you as a friend, Serena, but you'd already sent a request!
