Cricket, Niftus. Particularly, a hotly contested series of matches between England and Australia. England have retained the "prize", The Ashes, in a strange set of games....

Ahhhh, thanks and congratulations. Your bats are rather different from our bats.

Thank you...

Yep, different they are, but still as capable for dispatching zombies! (See Shaun of the Dead)

Your bats were popular here at one time but declined between the wars. There is even a football stadium that belies it's past, Derby County's home was called the Baseball Ground. My son who is a Sports major, said that baseball's decline in the UK was because it wasn't played anywhere else in the British Empire...... Cricket on the other hand..

Cricket explained for our colonial cousins: You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.
When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay all out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game!

the scariest thing about this explanation is that i actually understood it—thanks to six years of living in Jamaica! No problem, mon!
