    I like cricket but not as much as football, that's soccer for some.

    Aren`t they those black bugs that rub their legs together, and you can count the noises and tell the temperature?? and when you have to buy them in the middle of winter(to feed the pet tarantula) they cost a bunch







    Just kidding, but like many Americans, I don`t know squat about it.... Is it the game with a weird bat?

    my brother in law plays in the Dutch number one team (I don't even know the name) and tried to explain the rules about 50 times. I just don't understand them at all!

    I'm not much of a sports fan. But I dislike cricket less than most other games. I think American football is just incomprehensible. I was a varsity cheerleader when I was in high school, and I dropped off the team because I just couldn't learn the rules. "Are we supposed to be yelling Go! Go! or Gittem Gittem?"

    Also, I didn't like having to ride the bus to all the games.

    Love

    'Cricket - as explained to a foreign visitor

    You have two sides one out in the field and one in.
    Each man that is in the side thats in goes out and when he is out he comes in and the next man goes in until hes out.
    When they are all out the side that is out comes in and the side thats been in goes out and tries to get those coming in out.
    Sometimes you get men still in and not out.
    When both sides have been in and out including the not outs.
    Thats the end of the game.'

    'Acknowledgment to the marylebone Cricket Club.'

    Quote from a tea towel - bought at Lords

    Love the cricket - really looking forward to the World Cup next Year.
    Question is what should happen to Steve Waugh?

    Actually for all the people who have no idea what we are talking about - it has been explained to me many years ago as baseball on valium - no longer true - England fell in 3 hours on Sunday. (Sorry Donmurray)

    Don't worry Tookie, I'm a Scot, I just live here in England and have to tolerate all the depression around me! Come to think of it, I quite enjoy it really! Does that make me a bad person?
    I suspect that Cricket was an English strategy to make the Empire more acceptable to their colonies. Invent an obscure sport, teach them all how to play it, then watch everyone thrash you at it!
