Well, you do know that we have a little ball over here that folks chuck at over 100 mph and sometimes directed right at the head of the opposition. Flames is pretty passionate about a sport that uses a little disc, that sometimes can hurl at about 105 mph. 50 mph doesn't sound so bad, in this context



Everything sounds great until you get hit by something in the wrong spot.

60 all out, top score was Extras

That's what is known as a kick up the arse



I don't know much about cricket, but Ernie Extras is looking like a really good tail-end batsman for the Aussies.

Somehow I doubt Adams' version, while entertaining, is fully accurate.



You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side that's 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 a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay all out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game!

Come to Ireland and we will show you a fast paced sport. Plus there was bo mandatory safety equipment until 2010 when they made helmets mandatory. That includes for the goalkeepers, never understood how you could play that position with so little equipment. Best of all the matches are cheap.to go to as we don't even pay the players.

I found it hilarious, seeing that when I logged on at work this morning.

And cucumber sandwiches between in and out?

Cricket is 4 times better than baseball and still barely worth watching.

This is a good loss for Australia and world cricket.

Australia has been stupidly good, even boringly good, at this sport for over 3 decades. But what the poms did yesterday is what you'd expect the Aussies to do to some team like Zimbabwe at the WC.

I have never seen any team do that to any other, ever.
