This past Sunday night a bunch of us went to the Cricket 20/20 Australia vs South Africa. The 20/20 is a great format fit for us Americans who are used to a game lasting no more than 3 hours. Australia basically kicked the crap out of South Africa in true Aussie Cricket style. The match took place at the MCG, (Melbourne Cricket Ground) hallowed grounds for Cricket and Aussie rules football fans. It seats more than 100,000 but they haven't quite reached the Penn State Football Beaver Stadium status of 110,000. That is a goal near impossible to achieve.
It is now official - I like cricket better than baseball - at least to watch. Oh, I also got myself a nice bucket hat - awesome.
