Cricket is my passion, so there!

A friend from Barbados was reading my blog today and made a comment to me on msn: "who cares about cricket". Hmmmmm. Well for one, me. It is a passion of mine and this is my blog, so I will write about cricket if I feel like! Besides me, over a billion people around the world. Cricket World Cup is the third largest sporting event after the Olympics and Football World Cup! So cricket is one of my many passions (and one of the relatively non-political, hence something I can write about in a public forum) and its World Cup time, so naturally my blog will now witness a certain bias in favour of this glorious game which for West Indians is more than just a sport.

And speaking of team sports, I will take the liberty of sharing this article on the CEO of the International Cricket Council, Malcolm Speed, hailing the West Indies cricket team as the 20th century's greatest phenomenon in world team sports. On second thoughts, I will just share the link since the whole article may make this post too lengthy. Read it if you get a chance; it is very interesting.

Yes I relaised a long time ago that you were passionate about politics and cricket. As for the cricket, you are not alone...I see Padmore is right there with you.

you're putting my blog to shame! I need to write more. I'm watching Bangladesh - Sri Lanka highlights. I'm not sure how it ends, but Sri Lanka looks like they're thumping Bangladesh. No repeat of the India match then.

Man, Bangladesh got a whupping! It would have been asking too much of them to repeat Saturday's performance. Unlike you I have lots of time on my hands hence my active blog. I am sure that when my life returns to some manner of normalcy the frequency of postings will be drastically reduced!

Wow! The perils of living in this place- you start picking up their bad habits. I am a proponent of the Queen's English and refuse to use American spelling etc. so forgive me for not saying normality!
