    Fabulous stuff my dear. So true.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    It is a simple game if you think about it which is at heart a contest between the bat and the ball (though the balance is a lot more tilted towards the batsmen many a times nowadays). The contest between the bat and the ball is intriguing and fascinating. It is a skill game and the skills are so many and so pleasurable to contest when playing or absorb while watching. Apart from the skill aspect, there is also the mind aspect. Cricket is also a contest between two people and you have to use your brain to use your skills to be one step ahead of the batsman or bowler you are in a duel with. It is an individual as well as a team game and it is fascinating how the two work together. The team aspect, the talking points and discussions which occur because of cricket means that you make friends for life via it in the process of enjoying the cricket.

    Most importantly, cricket has a soul which lifts the heart. There is nothing like enjoying a hot cup of tea on a cold winter evening in a near empty Eden Gardens while Bengal play a good game of cricket - the king of all sports.

    Nah, just always been pretty fond of that particular Americanism (think it's about the only one).

    I must have seen it a couple of times recently, I think that's why it seems to have stood out.

Unfortunatly my interest in professional cricket is diminishing rapidly as other forms of the game find their way into the mainstream, but I'm sure I'll continue to play even if I give up supporting..
    ...Nothing beats dozing in front of the television when Afridi hits a six off Ntini and Nel excercises his face muscles looking at him and then waking up to see a superb outswinger from Pollock missing Mohammad Yousuf's bat marginally and Yousuf striking the ball along the ground through covers for four the next ball from him...Nothing beats just going through all the posts in CW for one hour forgetting to write one in that time...

    Can't think of a bigger turn-off than either of those TBH.
