    If you could be so nice and explain the rules and finer points of the game called Cricket to this 'Merican, I would appreciate it. Like Rugby, it looks like a game that I am familiar with but is different.

    Some years ago a Cricket magazine that I take, in their Christmas edition when it was announced that some schools would be running courses in the subject as part of a sports programme. Published a sample examination paper.

    One of the questions was,

    A man wearing a loud checked jacket, a cowboy hat with a camera with a three foot long lens around his neck sits next to you in the stadium. He says howdy pardner tell me how do you play this game of yours. give your answer in more than two words and less than 5000.

    The season is finally over and we are now County Champions for the 2nd time in 3 years, this is one to win that has been running since 1864. The winner gets a Pennant to fly where they are playing next season. When we first won the Championship in 1979 next season after a visit to Wales, the Pennant got left behind.

    I attended the Bears/Raiders NFL game at Tottenham last week. A Bears fan informed me that the Cubs will be coming over for a London MLB game next year. As the stadium is only 35 minutes from my house by train. I might try and get a ticket.

    I am a Seahawks fans and I was supporting the Raiders rather than a conference rival.

    The Cubs are a fairly decent team, somewhere between mediocre and rather good, it should be interesting. I have a Cubs jacket with the old bear cub logo in good shape I rescued from abandonment, good for keeping warm in autumn weather. Growing up with the New York Yankees I'd much prefer their jacket, but which one? If you look them up on the Internet you'll see about a score of different styles averaging $150/118, a bit much for a jacket.
