Have you ever played Cricket?
I am from Australia, but my parents are missionaries in Belarus & Baltics. But as a family, we love to play cricket. Is everyone from this server from America, or around the world?

I have no idea how any of it works, but I find it incredibly entertaining to watch when it's on for no apparent reason at like 1 in the morning on some random sports channel :D
Being American, I understand every sport..... except cricket. It's cool though, sometimes here in Houston we will see people playing it on soccer fields and stuff.

Just curious, I'm assuming you know something about Australian Rules Football? THAT is a sport I do know quite a bit about.

There are several versions of cricket. A 5 day game!!! , called a test match. A day / night game (50 over limit per team), and T20 or big bash - which have a limit of 20 overs. An over consists of 6 balls being bowled (or for my American friends, just like 6 pitches).

Aussie rules football also is great. Our family goes for Geelong Cats.

However, living overseas, we don't get to see much.

Google either and you will see it in action.

You shoot things with guns :D I understand sports like Football, Baseball, basketball, hockey, golf, etc. So I will go ahead and admit I don't understand every sport. I consider them more of a challenge of skill, since they are far more difficult than ball sports.

PS I did Google Calvin Ball, and it sounds a lot like me and my brothers playing anything.
