    See Ender Sai, first you say "real sports" and I'm like "Rugby yes, Aussie Rules yes".

    Then you start talking about cricket......o_O

    Cricket is a gift from Her Majesty to Her Commonwealth. There, teams across the globe compete in a variety of matches, from Twenty20 to One Day International to five day tests. The teams share one thing in common - "ABA", or a pledge among members to back whatever team plays Australia.

    Ask @slightly_unhinged, @G-FETT, @halibut or @Everton about cricket and see what they say.

    I will say this for cricket. That was one of the funniest episode of the Cosby Show, was when he was debating with some of his colleagues about it, and then they decided to try an impromptu game in the living room but Claire caught them. Classic.

    So, like how The Bible is all special & cool because it represents the word of God, Cricket is automatically a worthy thing because it emanated from royalty? Good to know!

    Cricket is quite possibly the finest game ever played, It's so beautiful that it can only have been created by a higher being.

    I'm having a hard time believing that all the 'muricans in this thread aren't defending their favorite national pasttimes. WTH people? Especially you @DarthTunick? You gonna let baseball and basketball take this sort of beating?

    Why should we feel the need to point out the obvious, that rugby derives it's value from the fact that it's nation states require a bit of the good ol' ultraviolence becase they are not allowed to carry guns?
    That cricket was a game of British colonialism, stolen from native peoples and then improved in the glorious way to still make it leisurely but not stupid as to take a few days; hence, baseball. The true beautiful game.

    And of course, that the rest of the world have no hand/eye coordination so they all need to play soccer...

    I'm not gonna lie, and I will deny it to @mavjade if anyone tells her, but it's a pretty sweet place to catch a baseball game even if you do have to watch the Red Sox...

    PS - my money was actually on someone like Slowpoker popping in and asking about the non-mentioning / tagging, as I clearly had the video ready. I was surprised it was you! <3

    Nah, I suspect this thread is beyond the Slowpokester's usual interests. But...could you imagine his replies if it were? Madness would ensue. Irrevocable, certified 100% bat**** madness!
