Glenn, how do you feel about Ted Cruz, the Canadian -born US presidential candidate? :)
Avatar    Mon. 3/23/15 6:15pm Danne D:

and the fox robots. It was always weird seeing the puck superimposed over the people in the front row when it was by the near boards.
  Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/23/15 6:16pm Ralphine:

How do you know if a shot was hit hard if there's no flame behind the puck?

You got a problem with phoeneticism?

I think Rabbit Maranville was the answer fed to Richie Cunningham when he was on a crooked game show answering questions about baseball.

If Cruz was born in Canada, then he can't run. Has no one told him this?

That won't be necessary, Jim :) I fainted when I got the only tattoo I have, way back in 1984. I really want it covered up but that would be expensive. And also the fainting part.

The burning of Mr. Met has clearly had an effect on Bronwyn. If there's a rash of mascot and stuffed animal burnings in the NJ/NY area, you all know who's to blame.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/23/15 6:23pm Caryn:

@Cecile: oh, it doesn't concern them. They just blame others for infractions they're guilty of themselves. US-born Obama is supposedly not allowed to run for President, but foreign-born Cruz and Mittens are A-OK. There should be voter ID laws because blacks, latinos and other Dems are clearly crooks, while GOP politicos keep getting caught voting several times at the same election.

@glenn: Abolishing the IRS is a minimum requirement for candidates in today's GOP.

@tomasz: It's like card game "Bridge" advice columns--just mix and match the same gibberish over and over again and no one will complain ;)
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/23/15 6:32pm Caryn:

All you cricket-impaired people, look at it this way: even Thatcher managed to make a fool of herself by trying to make a "clever" cricket reference that went awry. So always better to honestly admit you have no clue.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/23/15 6:33pm Carmichael:

I have heard the phrase "sticky wicket", and have no idea what that means.

here is a good summary of cricket www.intermain.org.uk...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/23/15 6:34pm JakeGould:

@tomasz.: In Park Slope in Prospect Park there are small cricket leagues. I would spend hours just watching and it seemed like automaton magic. They were having fun, but I still didn’t get it.
  Mon. 3/23/15 6:34pm Robert:

If you're ever coaching children's football in a draft league, and you get to the late rounds & there's a girl, if you know nothing else, draft her. They tend to be underestimated. We drafted one in 2010 & were not disappointed.
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Mon. 3/23/15 6:34pm steve:

a few nights ago i fell asleep to an asmr video of an Indian man sharing his collection of cricket trading cards. that was nice.

I used to wear a batting glove when playing co-ed softball, and everybody'd see it and back up. I could always hit a single that way.

if you think a baseball's hard, wait until you get hit by a cricket ball. mega-ouchy.
Avatar    Mon. 3/23/15 6:36pm tomasz.:

@Jake: i always wondered about cricket's level of recognition in the States. i suppose if it was going to happen anywhere, Brooklyn would be a good guess.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/23/15 6:36pm Caryn:

@tomasz: all that's missing from that description is "and this will all take several days".

@Caryn: ha ha, yeah. "pack a lunch. pack more than one lunch."
Avatar Mon. 3/23/15 6:37pm glenn:

brooklyn's had a cricket league for something like 200 years, if i remember correctly.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/23/15 6:38pm JakeGould:

@tomasz.: Well, this was Park Slope in the early 1990s. Not when it was “hipster” Brooklyn but more just mixed immigrants from India and elsewhere playing.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/23/15 6:38pm Carmichael:

Thanks, Caryn. I think it must have been Hogan's Heroes where I heard it.
Avatar    Mon. 3/23/15 6:39pm tomasz.:

@glenn/Jake: oh fair play! makes good sense, i'd never heard of it before
  Mon. 3/23/15 6:39pm Robert:

I taught Angelina & a couple other players how to cut block. About 15 min. later the head coach calls her into a scrimmage-type drill, and on the 1st snap she puts our star athlete, son of the head football coach at SUNY Maritime, on his face. They both came up giggling, but it earned me a lot of respect.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/23/15 6:41pm JakeGould:

@tomasz.: In hipster Brooklyn, nobody would play cricket but instead embrace kickball, shuffle-board and bocce ball. It’s got to be weirder, and not a deep commitment yet quirky. Bowling teeters on that edge, but is too formal for some.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/23/15 6:41pm Caryn:

I miss the days when British tv used to show the Kabaddi league from India. I could watch that for hours. Simple, and so entertaining!
  Mon. 3/23/15 6:42pm Robert:

BTW, SUNY Maritime's a football power in NCAA 3.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/23/15 6:42pm Carmichael:

I can't find any free cricket broadcasts in the US, at least on Comcast or DirecTV. It's all subscription only.
  Mon. 3/23/15 6:43pm Robert:

They actually televise kabaddi?!

I thought kabaddi was strictly a participant sport. Fun to play, wish it'd been available around here when I was in better condition, but never thought many people would enjoy watching it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/23/15 6:46pm Caryn:

@Robert: they used to. in the late 80s or 90s. It is oddly enjoyable to watch. I think part of the enjoyment comes from thinking, "this seems simple and fun, I might like to do this myself!" Nowadays, I mostly watch female kabaddi if I can catch it somewhere.

there's a great sport magazine show that airs in the UK called TransWorld Sport and they go out of their way to cover the whole world of sports. i've seen kabaddi coverage on that before.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/23/15 6:55pm Caryn:

Hmm, now I want Sportsy Talk to cover kabaddi some day. Like the differences between the international and 4 different Indian versions. Rectangular or circular pitch?
Avatar    Mon. 3/23/15 6:56pm tomasz.:

your audiance has spoken, Sportsies. find kabaddi!

eurgh, "audiEnce", obviously
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/23/15 6:57pm Matt from Springfield:

@Caryn: You'd have to write a couple paragraphs introducing the hosts (and all of us!) to kabaddi ins and outs, but after that we'll take it up like kabaddi fanatics!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Mon. 3/23/15 6:57pm Caryn:

For instance, the Iranian women's team is a major player in kabaddi. I find that fascinating, considering the challenges female athletes face in Iran.
