Cricket

I find cricket really boring.



But my youngest son loves playing it - I must admit that playing IS more fun than watching, especially of you are good at it, which I never was. I mean, that ball is damn hard and it goes really fast! If you can't hit the ball (which I never could) it will hit you and hurt bad. If you can't catch it (which I never could) it will also hit you hard and hurt bad. My favourite position when playing cricket? A long way out on the batter's right, i.e. the place where the ball never goes.

But anyway, as I was saying. My youngest likes playing cricket and is pretty good at it. He actually joined the school team recently and now this week he has 2 matches against other schools. He is really looking forward to it, shame I can't get there to watch. Maybe next time.

Hm, wonder if we should get some cricket stuff for when we go camping? That might be really good fun! Unless Custard eats the ball, of course...

Any sport where fast, hard balls can bruise you is not for me. :-)

I am not a ball sport fan myself. They might call us sissies for that RC :)

I'd like to take up archery or shooting and take out those critics. Erm....

Don't play cricket at camping. You may lose the ball.

Shadowthorne - Archery always appealed to me too. In fact it is said that the law that states that every Englishman should practice archery on Sundays is still in effect!

Cricket may be boring but I'll bet it's not when you're watching your own kid play. This is exactly how I feel about sports - boring, unless it's my kids I'm watching play.

Terri - I think you are right - wonder how long it will be until I am spending weekends watching him play cricket!
