We bombed Australia, but they probably deserved it

    After Skylab, we're probably on strike two with them, or however many strikes you get in cricket minus one.

    Not the first reefer smoked in the U.S. military.

    I think you only have to swing and miss once, so long as the ball also hits the wicket after you miss.

    But the bowler gets six balls in an over, I think.

    No such thing as a "strike" in cricket. You can swing and miss all you want, as long as the ball doesn't hit the wicket ("getting bowled") or doesn't follow a path that would hit the stumps but is blocked by your body without it touching your bat ("leg before wicket"). In either case, you are given out.

    Yes, six balls in an over.

    Just got done watching two full test matches of the Ashes, so I am shit-hot on cricket right now. Eager for the third test to start August 1.

    Cricket seems like a fun sport to play, but I personally would rather watch the three-hour long fumble that is an Aussie Rules game.

    Just anecdotally speaking, cricket rules are easier for a U.S. baseball fan to understand than baseball rules are for a Commonwealth cricket fan.

    Too bad they didn't land on Yahoo Serious.
