Oh yes, my bad.

Make that "apparently you've never been subjected to a 5 day Cricket

In reality, I quite enjoyed watching Cricket and learning about it while
I spent a year in New Zealand as an exchange student...

I'll see that boring sport and raise you... When I was in NZ I
discovered what is probably my favorite 'sport' of all times....
"Bowls" (or lawn bowls) I absolutely love it!

Something I've not figured out is why Rugby hasn't gotten more (any)
airtime US TV...? Is it because we're embarrassed by all the pads we
wear when we play rough sports?

OK, Newton, yea, i forgot... Does anyone have a Soccer (or rugby) world
cup bracket NewtonBook?
