lp, man we'd love to see a converted English cricket team join the National League East. If we keep importing Asian players, and the quality of Japanese teams keeps improving, we may one day have at least a part of the world compete in our baseball championship. I enjoy attending baseball games mainly because you can leisurely eat (I LOVE ballpark hotdogs, you just can't reproduce that indulgent taste at home) and drink cold beer without constantly worrying about missing the action (like soccer matches). I believe the founding fathers of baseball foresaw world interest in the sport and "optimistically" named the championship a world series.

well i expected a reply kinda like that, and i make no defense of cricket, it is probably the most boring sport we have invented (and we have invented a lot), and listeining to it on the radio like my dad forces us to do when he is in the car...well its just torture. baseball can be just as boring when it is the bottom of the 9th (is that correct baseball terminology?)and there is no score. and it is just crap when the pitcher walks a hitter just cos he is good like they did to mark macguire a loada times
