From General Discussion / Can cricket be explained to Americans?

Well spoken Simon,

Something to be said over billiards.



Quote: Simon Saunders

Ellie,

The anatomy and life cycle of a cricket is probably easier to explain than the sport of cricket.

Yes of course, not to be missed.

We used to play tin can cricket as children, not to roaring crowds of course but it was enjoyable nonetheless.




Quote: Simon Saunders

Victor,

Include the Duckworth Lewis method. No one who understands that. Even cricket lovers like myself.

Time for a Cricket for Dummies geared for Americans filled with a bunch of obtuse, arcane and misleading facts just for fun.


Quote: Simon Saunders

The short answer is no.

Having said that, they do have a national team and local clubs. Membership is largely made up of people with Indian, Pakistani and Caribbean heritage.

I looked into it a few years ago when I was planning on moving to Seattle.

The national team recently beat Jersey.

I've tried explaining cricket to American friends and ended up becoming so perplexed by their questions I gave up.

An armed debate on gun control, I would watch.




Quote: Jean Le Fete

Brilliant, that could solve the problem of having too many to fit in one debate!! Not to mention they're all ugly bastards.




Quote: victor nicholas

Instead of a debate they could have a shoot out, that seems like it would be within the constitution.


Quote: Ellie James

Rick Perry and Hulk Hogan....hmmm....You forget Rick Perry has a permit to carry a fire arm. He jogs with his gun in order to shoot the coyotes in the hill country where he jogs.

So, he wouldn't need Hulk Hogan to protect him.

How about Rick Perry and Katy Perry, we need more candidates that wear fruit baskets on their heads.



Quote: Jean Le Fete

Speaking of unlikely couples who will different Democrat and Republican candidates choose for their running mates?:

Donald Trump and Sarah Palin - I figure she's his kind of gal, shoots from the hips, crass, stupid in a smart red-neck ignorant kind of way. Perfect match, would love to see them doing campaign stops together.

Rick Perry and Hulk Hogan - not sure why, but Hogan could threaten to beat the crap out of anyone making fun of Perry's foot in mouth disease...

Jeb Bush and Dan Quayle - Jeb needs someone he can look smarter than and I think you have to dig back a ways to really find one that worked for his Daddy.......

Yes, it is a medical condition. Trump suffers from constipation, he starts his push from a distance.




Quote: Simon Saunders

Enjoyed this one. A bit mad but I like that.

Does anyone know why Trump does that pout? Is it a medical condition?

If you ignore the Bush empire slant writing a story based on a recurring word left blank could be very amusining.
