17'' flexed is the beginning of "oh, he lifts" at my height. I'm called anorexic by my gym buddies. Not kidding.

Having large arms is a nuisance in my experience. I enjoyed it while I was in my 20's. That was before I cared about my wardrobe / appearance. If I could do it all over again I think I'd have stopped when my arms were around 16" flexed.

Most OTR suits and jackets won't fit me because the armholes and sleeves are just too damn tight.

Last time I looked, this was an international forum. So let's please use the correct terminology. They are jumpers, not sweaters.
That is all.

When I see sweaters referred to as jumpers, it makes me want to punch my computer. What an awful term. Even if its "correct," it should be retired.

Jump arounddd. Jump jump jump.

Just as America took cricket and made it infinitely better, the same should apply to the jumper/sweater debate.

That's really cute right there.

Listen I'm from the land of curling, so I'm not trying to ride on a high horse. I think baseball drags on for too long, has far too many obscure rules and has it's fare share of oafs hitting the field. That being said a cricket match can last for days, has a set of rules that is even more obscure (to the point that it is nearly impossible to play correctly in a recreational environment) and is often played whilst wearing a jumper (sweater), which (outside or rugby) should have ended in the 1950's after ponces stopped winning Wimbledon. 

 

Not to mention that cricket has differential scoring for an out of boundary stroke, whereas baseball has the HOME RUN; quite possibly the most American thing there is. 

post #14922 of 37429

You're thinking of test matches. There are like 4 different kinds of matches.

 

Baseball is American because it's easier to keep track of the score. That way kids can keep playing even though the education system is flunking everyone in math. You can use tally marks ffs.

I dunno man, I've lived in Liverpool and Manchester. I wouldn't exactly say things are looking too hot in GB either...

 

Regardless I think we can both agree that sweater is a better than a jumper and a home run is better than an "out of bounds stroke resulting in 7 points". I will concede Rugby is better than American (and to a lesser extent Canadian) football.

Easy fix: increase chest, upper back, and shoulder size so you have to wear a larger jacket :teach:
