I lived a year in England (Oxford in fact) and came to enjoy cricket - in fact I found it magic. Now I was as a teen a baseball player so there were similarities. But really! 5 days/ The subtlety of declaration! Which could actually improve baseball.

I continue to spend a lot of time in England. Sadly, they seem to have figured out that shorter matches draw audiences. Ahh the decline of cultures.

Norm Geras is running a debate on cricket. Given that I have now posted on 'culture' I should point out this connection - cricket and dance. You should go by way of Norm back to one of my local papers.

Oxford? Lovely place. I lived there from 1965 to 1978 and briefly in 2000. It is nice to walk along ChristChurch Meadows, where Lewis Carroll wrote Alice, with a bottle of eau de vie from the French Countryside. Then you get down to the big river and you can catch a ride on a punt or rowboat and go for more drinks after.
