It's just cricket

Posted on Thu 20 August 2009 in general

I'm never been a big fan of spectator sports. Generally the only things I watch with any sort of regularity is international Rugby Union and the occasional World Cup game. However there is something to be said for the institution of Cricket. It's a lot easier to watch the figures slowly grow in the corner of a web page over 5 days while doing other things. If it starts looking close on day 3 or 4 I may even consider listening in to TMS while doing the weeding. And if England win the Ashes I can at least say I paid some sort of attention to the game and use it as an excuse for a celebratory pint :-)
