    It's amazing what CRICKET can do

    So before I went to work today (UMG), I saw the movie "Wondrous Oblivion" starring Delroy Lindo. It is a movie of 2 immigrant families living next to each other in a racially tensed neighborhood in London. A boy from one family befriended the father of the other family. Both of them had a mutual passion for the sport CRICKET. Everyone disapproved of their friendship because of their racial backgrounds. They ultimately bonded through the sport of CRICKET in this movie. I just think it's amazing that cricket can cross color boundaries. It really makes me enjoy this sport even more. Watch this movie! It will not disappoint. Has anyone seen it?

    That's just because you went forward in time, purchased the DVD and came back just to taunt the rest of us.
