Twenty20 Vision

In the past when shamelessly bearing my soul. I made no secret of my appreciation for the gentlemanly game of cricket.

Recently I have been somewhat absorbed by the World Twenty20 championship (that's fast and supposedly somewhat sexier cricket for those of you not as informed as I). Though when I say world I actually mean just 16 measly countries (cricket is a sadly under appreciated sport it would appear) but still that is vastly more of the world than the Baseball world series which covers just North America. Which hardly qualifies as the whole world really. But, hey I'm no stickler for geography.

I can't but think as I support my country in their cricketing endeavours that if they just used this picture I found completely by accident (honestly!!) in their marketing and advertising that worldwide viewership and support would rapidly increase.
Am I right or am I right?

Well---that was surprising. I feel like I need to talk my Bishop now. And also that I need to watch that sport.

I would like to start a petition to bring cricket (or at least these three naked guys) to America.

AMY said...

I've been waiting for you to post for over a month and all I get is almost naked men? :)

Marla said...

couldn't agree more!

I just can't figure out why they don't have cricket (or as widely popular) over here. It's just isn't fair.

:)

Hope you and baby are doing well~

Oh, you are SO RIGHT! I don't mind cricket (though it might have something to do with living in London and getting caught up in it with the locals), but the usual sweaters makes me laugh. Going without clothes is a definite improvement!

Good to hear from you. I have just posted some news on my blog. :-)

I have always wondered why we call it a world series as well.

Claire said...

Well. I'm just hoping that those cricket bats are 'just' long enough....
