I like fishing with crickets. I have great results when using them.

Actually it is not from a boat. It is drift fishing.

I love crickets ... especially when they make those chirpping sounds at 4am, I love it!

You want comedy? Just start talking about ducks, geese, animal butts, or Kraft Dinner and you'll get some comedy!

When I was India last fall that's all that was on their sports channel. Cricket Cricket Cricket.... It's too hard to understand. :oops:

How can you have a game that can last days. How much beer money does one have to take for that. :P :P

There was this cricket see, it was being chased around by this duck in a parking lot. Then all of a sudden these geese came flying down and started kicking this ducks butt all over the place. Well, they wounded the duck so bad it died. I took it home and had a nice dinner of roast duck and Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, straight from the box.

Moral to this story...if your a duck chasing a cricket, beware of a goose or two as it could lead to accompaning a Kraft Dinner in a meal.

Well, I guess that explains why there are no cricket fans over here. I'd rather be taking pictures than sitting and watching a game that, I assume, is going to be continued the next day or so. Heck, I can't even stand the TV programs that end with "...to be continued". :D

Not only does it last for days, but here in England we regard a draw as a good result !!

But didn't you just love the Rugby Word Cup.

Unlike the World Series were the rest of the world don't get to play :D :D :D

By Jimmeny, there' a game for ya!

Don't get many Cricket matches on the telly here in Canada. Get some good Curling, and Lacross though. Perhaps you've heard of Hockey? Got those games here too. It's played like a cross between Curling and Lacross... :)

Isn't there a part there that also includes something like tag wrestling? And baseball where the opponents head if the baseball and the the stick is the bat? :lol:

Pah! Hockey? Girl's game! (even the ice variety). :P :P

You should try Shinty (Scots) or Hurling (Irish) - they're more or less the same :?: sport :?: . Bascially open warfare with sticks. :twisted:

In my younger and stupider days I used to hurl a lot. Espically on Friday nights after too many rounds of Molson Golden. Never considered it a sport mind you.
During those same days I had a prof by the name of Mr. Briggs. A confirmed cricket nut. He took the time to try and teach us the finer points of the game. Damn that ball was hard. It was embarrassing to watch our feeble attempts but I learned that it is a hell of a lot harder to play than one imagines. Just delivering the ball without causing bodily harm to the batter was a great accomplishment for us. :lol:

You used to hurl empty Molson Golden bottles? At whom? Innocent bypassers? I certainly hope you didn't consider that a sport! :shock:

Leo,
Most nights I had a difficult time seeing let alone trying to physically do something. The misspent days of youth. :lol: :lol:
