TRUTH, JUSTICE AND THE AMERICAN WAY

When the Mets and Mariners collapsed so badly at the end of the season, the question on everybody's tongue was, "Is there really any truth and justice in the world"? Also, "Where is the light or is the long night of the soul never to end"? The answer came tonight: Yes there is absolute justice in the world, there is light that can lead the way to the promised land and there is neverending, glorious truth. The Yankees are vanquishd. Congratulations Indians!

Yeah, that was nice for about 3 1/2 minutes until the Cowgirls pulled a miracle.

Who cares about football at a time like this? Or, for that matter, cricket.

Oh dear, Brainape, you're not in the flow, are you?

It's the English for World Cup rugger, Euro Championship soccer (both this coming weekend) and for English F1 World Championship in Brazil.

PS: And when we say 'World' we mean 'World'!

No, no, no Surreyman, not THAT kind of football--the kind Americans play for fun and mayhem. Now, as to cricket. Someday, I'd actually like to see a cricket match. I want to see a demon bowler and actually experience a sticky wicket. Oh, the humanity!

I get the feeling that cricket really doesn't exist--it's just a rumour (note that I used the English spelling), or perhaps a fantasy created in the minds of people soberly attending sessions at the local pub!

Hey Mindmonkey, if you make it to a cricket match you'll want to see a googly (or a Chinaman) taking a thick edge over short fine leg and running through to silly mid on with the batsman taking a second on the return to the bowlers end! All that and a decent pint too!

I am not keen on games and feel a long walk then a good book is the best way to spend a sunny Saturday. Calling into a great cafe half way through the walk to catch up on local news (gossip) and to read the newspaper is a highlight.
Cricket is great if the blokes wear white, the grounds are green and the crowd well mannered and tolerant. Cups of tea from a big steel Thermos to wash down some home made bikkies would be nice too.
Shouting and screaming football fans and swearing, bleeding cavemen types puzzle me. Eating half cooked mystery bags doused in watered down horse on a lump of bread leaves me cold.

Cricket's simple.
You go out and are in until you're out, then you come in and someone else goes out to be in until he's out and comes in.

Well, if anyone had told me that, Surreyman, I wouldn't have wondered.

Tolerant Cricket crowds? The Chinese, you know, have singing crickets. Same for the English?

I have a can of spray in the garage that takes care of crickets.

Does the spray also deal with the problem of sticky wickets? By the way, why do wickets get sticky in the first place?

Hey, Rowlanda! It was in a test match between England and the West Indies and it was Michael Holding (bowler) and Peter Willey (batsman). Andy.

We don't get televised cricket matches in the states, so do bowlers wear bowler hats?

Yes, and batsmen wear utility belts.

Actually the batsmen wear boxes, the umpires wear white coats and the bowlers try to york the batsmen. Oh, and the slips and gully are always pleased to catch a tickle down the leg-side.

Sticky wickets can also be caused by the bowlers follow through.
