    Read some history to understand if Cricket has history in this country or not. Cricket was played in America much before baseball. If Americans don't care about other sports so be it...but stop whining about other sports and stop whining about why why Brits do not report about American sports.

    PS: At the end of the day...it is all just sports. Learn to enjoy it as is rather than whining about it.

    Looks like the Brits have taken over. I have a solution to the whining on both sides. Americans don't care for cricket or soccer because those sports have no history to us. Baseball on the other hand has a lot of history in America, and we invented the game.

  • They're right

    The two Brits are right. Golf and baseball are extrememly boring and seemingly endless. But then again so is soccer. Just a bunch of guys jogging for an afternoon. Once and a while there may be a score but don't count on it. One might as well be watching a marathon. I can't wait for end of August when the real sports start again.

    One more whining by a US Reporter about Cricket. The same reported failed report that Golf is played over 4 days very similar to Test Cricket which is played over 5 days. Have you ever heard about T20 Cricket? Please take it as a reading assignment and some of your ignorance about Cricket will come to an end.

    They do have a shorter version of cricket that lasts called 20Twenty. Baseball is BORING hands down... I wanted to shoot myself when I was forced to watch Reds vs Giants live.
