Humblest apologies

OK, I'm really sorry about the lack of updates! It's a cross between business and general lameness. I will hopefully be posting properly later today and being much more frequent with it afetr that. For now though, I give you this to ponder:

The Commonwealth Games:

Amazing athletic event, steeped in history and tradition, or an excuse for Britain not to compete against the Americans, Russians and Chinese in something?

I was thinking that too - eliminate the world's big superpowers so Britain can have a chance against her former colonies.

I still consider america a colony, if only those yanks knew what they were missing out on. What is baseball apart from a poor man's cricket with even stupider outfits?

Paddy, oh no you didn't just knock on baseball!!! And anyway, if anyone saw the World Baseball Classic, they'd know that we didn't even win, and we invented the sport!!! Damn Japanese!

Besides, I'd rather watch curling than cricket... What's up with those silly bats, anyway?

Paddy Duncan said...

I thought curling was just invented to give scottish people something to do apart from heroin/

Hello Numero Uno Tony here. I think we should expel the Australians too. They haven't got any oil and then well we'll all live happily ever after. And my legacy will carry gordon into power and ensure we win the 2012 Olympics because it will be our ball then and we can take it in whenever we want.

At the risk of raising controversy here Lunar i think you'll find that Baseball originates from England, being based on rounders or 'townball'. The first formal rules being laid down by a canadian at some point in the 19th century. :p

(I'm back by the way, expect a return to ramblings soon!)

Its just a good excuse to pretend we still have an Empire - plus it gives her majesty somewhere to go for her jollies every few years :) (and we all know she likes to travel!)
