Collin, I think I have uncovered
a raging cricket fan worse than me, in John
Cricket is more of an inherited
with fans in Australia, something about beating
the pants off the mother country.
We have had this rivalry since the early days of the colony.
The English export their fans when they come to Australia
in the aptly named "Barmy Army"
I watch cricket on TV, have the sound turned off, and listen
to the game on BBC radio, that way we can hear
the larrikins of cricket and the displeasure
of the english commentators when they are getting beaten,
(which is usual in Australia)
Yesterday, the BBC took the microphone down and recorded
the Barmy Army in full voice, as their boys
sang and exulted in their batsmen.
Only the English can celebrate so loudly in getting a draw!!http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barmy_Army
