Cricket

An English friend of mine invited me to watch your game of cricket on his television. I was surprised to see it was not that game with the hoops – he told me that was croquet, but not pronounced like the cowboy Davy, but crow-kay. Then he explained how cricket worked (ojo, that’s crick-it, not cri-kay), with men going out until they were out, then they came in, and the bowler men had no-balls, and it finished when all the overs were over, and all the rest. I smiled and said yes, but really I didn’t have a clue what was going on. It was fun though watching the Australians get all those “home runs”. Funny how the English invented so many sports, but lose at them all! Maybe Don Fabio Capello can change that?
