Gentlemen and Mates Play The Same Game

I apologize to all my buddies from England, but I need to keep my Aussie family happy. And btw, all I remember about cricket is that it could take five days to complete one game (or at least when I lived down under) and the balls are really, really hard--like rocks.

Yes the English take their cricket very seriously Gatekeeper. Cricket balls are very hard. I remember once when my brother was at school, he got hit on the nose with a cricket ball and had to go to hospital for an X-ray as they thought it was broken! Fortunately it wasn't.

I remember how serious the game was taken. I guess it's like baseball, basketball and football here. Those boys like to play hard. But those cricket balls do scare me!
