Another wet n cold day!
So... Friday this past week was uneventful accept one of our enthusiatic cricketers might have hurt himself slipping over those awful granite benches by Northrop.The weather played folly again, the number of people who show up for a game is directy proportional to the temperature.However, cricket zealots like myself and couple others do show up all the same and battle dreary winds and rain.
Well , like I said ther were just a couple of us this last week and came guy who was curious about what we were up to. We offered him the bat and in true all American style , he held it like a baseball bat and I thought, well this guys not going to connect with the ball. Low and behold not only this guy connect but he hit the ball to all parts of Northrup and I was amazed by the amount of power he put behind each shot.
I hope we get to see more of him in the future..hope fully this Friday. He did tell me that he will join us next Friday...Well there are so many guys-bystanders who try there hand at cricket, who say they will join us but we have not had much luck with these bystanders showin up. Well, the weather has something to do withn it...may the rain gods not bless us please!
Anyways there has been more talk about intramural cricket and I am really excited about ithe prospects. I hope there are others who feel the same way. We will see how it goes....On another note....I tried making a tape ball this week with some duct tape . I must mention , I had never done something like that and I dont think I should ever do it again...When I was kid we played with something called Rubber balls and all this art of tape ball making is alien to me. Hopefully someone knows to do that well..may be I will learn...just may be...anyways thats a self critique for change.
Have great week..see you guys on hopefully on a bright and sunny Friday.
..have great week folks.

It's Thursday 28th June 2007, and I've just come across your entry from the 16th May 2005 as you were talking about washout at a cricket match in Minnesota US.
I'm a true Brit through and through, maybe a bit of italian and Irish in me but Brit born and bred. I've grown up with cricket since I was a boy throughout the summer and believe it or not a huge Hockey fan since the age of 11.
I have organised a cricket tournament at our local ground in Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire, England for Sunday the 1st of July and to my dismay, we have localised flood warnings all over the East of England.
Our commitee members have put in hundreds of hours of their time to organise this day in the middle of the English summer, which as usual means its raining. If anyone reads this before the 1st July 2007, what do you do for entertainment during a cricket match when it's wet and you have 150 people due to attend at £5.00 per ticket.
I was more interested in details of you playing in Minnesota US. How long have you played there for, What sort of quality is your cricket played at, What format do you play, Who initiated your interest in cricket etc. It would be great to hear from you.
Our Cricket ground is over 135 years old and the infamous W.G.Grace played here in 1872 just before he started the ashes tours to Austrailia during the late 1800's and early 1900's. He played for an All England Select XI side against the local XI, hence our ground name of the all England Sports Ground.
It would be great to hear from someone
