  3. Baydog, Tillerman is being a weirdo on purpose. Please tell him to stop, and embrace the one true sport...the NFL.

    Thanks

    Doug

    PS Tim Tebow agrees with me, at least about Tillerman

  4. Nah Doug, he's not being a weirdo. And he'll be the first one to admit that football is the world's most popular sport.

    Now if you'll excuse me, there's an insect in my house rubbing it's wings together making an awful racket. I've got to go put my white pajamas on and squash it with a flattened baseball bat.

  5. Doesn't Mr. Tebow play for Surrey? What's his batting average?

  6. Baydog, I think you are right that, by most measures, football is the world's most popular sport. That other game where men in tight pants throw a pointy object in the air and then run into each other and fall over is #10 according to this site.

  7. waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    oh sorry

    i just froze in my tracks when i read about what you are going to do to your cricket

    i was standing on the a key at the time and these computer keyboards just keep repeating the letter if you do not keep moving

    you should not take out your wrath on the poor cricket just because he is named the same as that ridiculous english game that is the source of the silliest jargon of any of the games that humans play

  8. Baydog: I'm impressed! The only animal I can conjure up here in Maryland after a 15 degree start to the day is an annoyingly slow and fat winter house fly.

  9. Is Criminy for those too lazy to say Jiminy Cricket?

  10. Is "leg before wicket" any more silly than "three point stance"?

  11. Giants fans this Sunday hope that the projected sticky wicket in Metlife stadium will give the Falcons' Matt Ryan the yips.

  13. One way to win a Test Match is to run up a big score in the first innings and then to force the opponents to "follow on" after their first innings. You should pass on that tip to your gigantic friends.

  14. Hey I got an idea, lets take this blog into depths of absolute minutia. I will start first; Baydog what is the species of that particular cricket, I have seen them dwelling the Chunnel but I do not know the exact species, please advise.

  15. Nah. It's a Norwegian Blue.

    Beautiful plumage.

  16. It might be beach cricket, but I don't think it's French cricket because it does have stumps. It's possible that it is limited overs cricket, but it looks more like test cricket to me.
