I actually read "Batman" and was ready for a riveting account of said masked avenger weeding out wretched hives of scum and villainy everywhere.

To say I was disappointed is an understatement. :mrgreen:

I really don't know that much about cricket beyond the tidbits of information I picked up in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. :P

Cricket, a mob of sour faced, self important twats working on boring the world to death.

So Rugby good. Cricket bad. Got it. I don't know much about any sport except tennis and mountain climbing.

I believe that batman is a fan of spelunking and base jumping.

Also of Superman. They're so gay for each other. :P At least according to my ex-girlfriend who was something of a comic aficionado. :D

The best description of cricket I ever saw
"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 that's 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..."

brilliant because it makes perfect sense to anyone who understands it but is meaningless to everyone else.

The most succinct description of cricket.

Yes, someone finally got the reference. I but that comment in a few other places and noone else has ever got it. I was starting to worry that I might be going mad(der).

And the outright shocking news that England won a Test Match with 2 days to spare.

England defeats West Indies in three days. Hardly ranks as a significant victory but then, it does qualify as an improvement. Reminds me of the report of the village cricket match in" England Their England". Bring on the Ashes. :D
