Do you think England ought to let the Aussies win one?

I once executed a magnificent bite on a class mate. I persuaded him that Scotland did not play cricket as they did not have enough level ground for a pitch.;)

Can't discuss something that has no form, or rationale..... As far as I can tell, the rules are made up as you play, and changed on a whim when it suits the person changing the rules... :rolleyes:

The final seemed like a good match ACB, but the world cup, a local football barney and a new lady PM swamped it. Oh yes, and because we lost of course.

Seriously, Sku, it was a nail biter - we had a temporary collapse...

Soccer I can understand. Hockey I can understand. I can even figure out the bare essentials of curling. Cricket I have no clue on at all. I could probably play the dang game and do just fine (when I was younger, of course) and I still wouldn't understand what I was doing.

Interesting.
Does Germany have a team bat and ball game of its own devising?

Let me think...

There are some children games and school games nobody plays anymore. As example there is a game my Mother used to play called KibbelKabbel (similar to the US game Peewee) where you have to hit a short wooden stick with a bigger one from a designated base so the catcher is unable to catch it. From where the short stick lands the catcher has to try to throw this stick directly at the larger stick now lying at the base.

And then hockey (NOT ice-hockey) is played quite often in Germany, I think the national is quite good at it, but perhaps that doesn't count.

A dip into Wiki suggests that a variant of hockey was played throughout Europe from the 14th C, developing into national variants like shinty and hurling. So you probably do have a long tradition of hockey.

I would rather plane a mac 26 under power through a fleet of racing dragons while wearing crocs, speedos and a purple T shirt listening to Abba on a boom box bungeed to the pushpit, than watch cricket.
Just saying.( can't find a wry smilie, so imagine one here)

That's the worst thing you can imagine doing huh?

Speaking of Dragons, I walked over the road from work and down a lane to where I get my car serviced and came upon a FG dragon sitting on a cradle outside a little shed I'd never noticed. Had a talk to the proprietor who tells me he might be the only authorised builder of Dragons in the Southern hemisphere.

Today he demolished a wooden one which was burnt recently, keeping the keel. Apparently someone (unauthorised) was camping in it and had a little stove...

I'm looking forward to retirement, so I can sit down and watch a whole test match now and again.:cool:

Sorry to hear bout the Tazz wooden Dragon. Mine took in so much water for 4 weeks, I couldn't have lit it!
As far as Banamick's cricket goes, that's how I sail my Dragon!!
