    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.

    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 [​IMG]

    I just got off the phone with my bank. They had mistakenly deposited approximately $65,000 into my checking account over the weekend. I am having second thoughts about my new bank after such a large scale mistake. It is ironic that I chewed them out for putting that $65,000 deposit into my account and told them to fix it. I guess I could have bought all the Formosa suits available. Oh well...

    We'd pooled it all together as an early Christmas present. This way you wouldn't have to doddle on the PoW vs Flannel.

    I guess it's all going to go towards an expensive lunch in New York now [​IMG]

    New York?

    Some poor customer is missing $65k from their checking account. I cannot believe they're so stupid. I'll take it if they come back to tell me that they can't figure out where it came from LOL. Formosa suits all around on me!

    FANDANGO = 2 tickets to Interstellar.
    The worst movie I have ever seen in my life. I thought HER was the worst but this one beats it by miles.

    I would get $65k of Chick-Fil-A

    That's ~6500x my usual order of the spicy chicken sandwich, no butter on the bun, 2 extra filets on the side. I could have Chick-Fil-A for DAYS!

    I'm assuming the bank would just take our generous gift and send it off to headquarters after your refusal.

    I know the term "only in America" is over used, but Chick-Fil-A gives good reason for American exceptionalism.
