'Tis The Season To Be Wet...

The jury is still out on whether the rather more than slightly damp conditions started as soon as the drought was declared and a hosepipe ban brought into play, or whether it was due to the cricket season getting under way. I favour the latter explanation.

I still hope to be able to get to see my first "real" (ie. not on TV/radio) cricket match sometime soon... possibly in the summer holidays, if it isn't droughting it down cats and dogs. In the meantime, there is an excellent summary of cricketing mythology over at Husborne Crawley, courtesy of the Archdruid.

Excellent analysis of the English weather,
Mac. Cricket, plus hosepipe ban,
equals downpours.

Do enjoy your first "real" cricket match and,
should it be of benefit to you and your American Readers,
the following Rules of Cricket might be useful:


You have two sides, one out in the field and one in.

Each man that's in the side that's in, goes out,
and when he's out, he comes in and the next man
goes in until he's out.

When they are all out, the side that's out comes in,
and the side that's been in, goes out, and tries to get out
those coming in.

Sometimes, you get men still in and not out.

When both sides have been in and out,
including the not outs, the winner is declared. . .

If there is one.

It's a rarity to see/hear anything about cricket from my Catholic friends or the blogs I follow, so this is a welcome post. :D
