Hey Canada, how about those Commonwealth Games?

I've watched about thirteen seconds of it.

It's like the Olympic games for the British Empire. So basically a right old thrashing of countries like Lesotho and Swaziland by Australia/England/Canada.

It's being held in Delhi this year, and India is actually doing pretty well; second on the medal tally behind Australia. I watched them beat England in the Hockey last night and it was rather exciting for some reason.

Sounds like the strangest thing I've ever heard.

So, presumably, cricket is one of the main events?

Woohoo Canada is fourth, yeah I watch these results on highlights only. The biggest thing here in Canada happened before the games began and that was due to the conditions in India in the athlete village. I guess they were deplorable but were fixed up somewhat. With the MLB playoffs and hockey starting these get a small mention near the end of the sports shows in the am.

Cricket has only been played once, apparently, in Malaysia in 1998. I don't even have to finish reading the wikipedia article to know that Australia must have thrashed everyone. It's too long to play properly in an event like the Commonwealth games, but organisers want to bring it back for the Glasgow 2014 games in a revised ... oh, you've stopped reading.


I only like the Commonwealth Games because places like The Isle of Man and Norfolk Island get to compete, whereas if they even thought about entering the Olympics they would get laughed out of existence.

That's a good point. Cricket matches take a long time after all. Isle of Man (Wight) and other small places should be able to compete. Good on 'em.

I actually like cricket, only because I stayed with family in England this past summer and was able to get into it properly...ie drinking in a pub and having strangers tell me whats what, it was great, seriously good times...I am not being sarcastic, but the more I type the more it seems I am.

I find cricket is only good to play, and it's absolutely the most boring sport to watch. Unless you just like laying around on the grass drunk, calling the Poms poofters then falling alseep for a few hours (and not missing the action). Which is why it's so popular here.

You will find many in the States say the exact same thing about baseball

Agreed. Baseball is super dull to watch. Then again, I only enjoy watching combat sports.
