Sports played internationally, not in which the World League comprises Americans only.

I put a vote in for cricket. That sport just fascinates me, but I still don't understand it very well. I watched some while I was in Asia on Star Sports. It has a similar ambiance to baseball.

Is a tree as a rocking horse
An ambition fulfilled
And is the sawdust jealous?
I worry about these things .

I thought that we had already established that golf is not a sport ...uh oh....<ducking>   ;;)
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

3 for Football, 1 each for Cricket and Golf. Not surprising, considering it's the National Sport in GB.

Yeah, but stick tennis in there on this forum and we'd have a winner.

Obviously, but the idea is 'other sports'.

murrayfan, do me a favour. Get rid of your sig (not the murray bit, the other bit). It isn't funny, and I don't see how 'death is waiting'is relevant to me.
