Cricket

The sport, not the insect.

I don't understand it, I don't like it, and I certainly don't have the patience and/or attention span to watch it. Do you know how long those games are? 8 HOURS! Sometimes, they take FIVE days!

That means 8 hours X 5 days = you must be crazy if you think I'm going to watch that.

The rest of my family LOVES the sport. The World Cup just ended on Saturday and so around my house it was cricket time, all the time lately for quite a while. Pakistan (where I was born) lost in the semi-finals, and the final game was between Sri Lanka and India.

All I've heard lately is about cricket, and frankly I'm over it!

Before I end for the day, I'll share a related joke my dad shared with me yesterday -- Just saw a Sri Lankan drinking tea from a plate, he said the Indians took the cup.


P.S. Don't forget to leave me a comment below on your thoughts! As always, I'd love to hear from you.

Just because of your dad's joke, I'll disregard your hate for cricket :p

My brother in law is australian and he loves cricket. I never could get it myself. I would rather have a field of the insect type than the human ones playing at it.

I'll be perfectly honest, I've never watched cricket. From what I've heard, I think I'd feel the same way you do! haha Love your dad's joke, that's great!

Haha, I agree - the joke was a good one. I just don't see what the craze is all about in the sport.

loved the joke! And it's all so foreign to me, I enjoyed this window into your world.

It's so funny, because I was thinking about how the only person I've ever known that watches cricket is my friend from Pakistan. She loved the sport though, and I'm sure she was disappointed that they lost in the semi-finals!

Haha, I'm quite the opposite. I did enjoy the joke though!
