Superman, Oh No Wait, That's Wrong

Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

Why no, it's.......

Cricket in America.

Yes, that's right. There will be a mini-tournament in May between Sri Lanka, New Zealand, and NWG assumes, the USA.

How amusing this will be. NWG wonders if they'll bother to televise it over here, and how much Sri Lanka and New Zealand are being paid to participate.

Can we have some American cricket phrases Mare? I'll start it off...

-'Runs' will become 'points'
-A 'bowler' will be a 'pitcher' and a batsmen a 'hitter'
-'Boundary' will become 'perimeter'
-When a batsman attacks he goes on the 'offence', and 'defence' conversely
-'Striker's end' will be 'first base' and 'non-strikers' will be 'second base'
- The 'outfield' will become the 'end zone'

...I wonder if they'll have a name for cricket itself? Or have they already with baseball? There'll be tobacco stains on the pitch and an epidemic of high-fives.

oh Stani, you are so wise. NWG hopes it does make it on to TV over here with american commentary, then we will all know for sure.

Stani Army said...

See, now you're just patronising :(

The Nightwatchgirl said...

Not patronising Stani. NWG means it genuinely.

Stani Army said...

;) sorry homegirl, my emotional hypersensitivity means I have to check sometimes.

Ain't you gonna add to my list Mare? I wonder what their version of nightwatchman would be?! Whatever it is, just don't take your name from it!

The Nightwatchgirl said...

What are you saying Stani? You don't like NWG's name?

Stani Army said...

Cue the Shakespeare quote!

No Mare, I was saying just don't Americanise yours. 'Nightmaregirl' is the best name though, whoever it was that gave you it...

Stani Army said...

Mare, can you join this fantasy league? Do it for me pleeeeeease!? It’s not difficult, I promise.

NWG is not convinced Stani.

Stani Army said...

Convinced? It's not a Spanish lottery scam for goodness sake Mare. Fine, be a spoilsport

The Nightwatchgirl said...

NWG loves the spanish lottery, it's the reason she can afford the domain name.

Stani Army said...

...well just don't give your bank details to a Dr from Nigeria who is looking for his daughter.

You do worry me sometimes Mare.
