    Whatta catch, not baseball division

    That would be in the top 1,000 slips catches of all time, probably.

    Oh man, these kids all sound amazing. We're going to win forever.

    2019 Cricket All-Rounder Thread

    One day cricket sucks and the World Cup is irrelevant. It served its purpose and it's time to move on.

    Whatta catch, not baseball division

    The outfield catches aren't the true value ones. The best catches are slips catches.

    Well, there's the possibility he can become next year's Lin, the future Nunez, etc.

    Very true. It’s a trade off.

    The Last Great Fight - State of Origin 2009

    The thing I liked most about the article is they managed to get people talking about stuff - was it a mistaken kick or were they meant to pass it - and also clearly there still remains a huge level of resentment between Steve Price (who was the captain of the club team I support) and Justin...

    The Last Great Fight - State of Origin 2009

    If you know what State of Origin is, you can skip the primer below. Rugby League is a really big sport in the north east of Australia, and every year there is a three-match sort of all-star game that actually matters. New South Wales and Queensland make up most players in the National Rugby...

    Finn: Red Sox Potentially Changing Radio Broadcast Approach

    I'd moved to Eck by then and he was loving the shoes as well. That was the first time in many many years of listening to the Sox on weei (which I do almost daily at my desk at work) that I had no idea what was happening on the field.

    Finn: Red Sox Potentially Changing Radio Broadcast Approach

    It was appalling to listen to that today. I was lucky enough to have the radio on for my commute to work early this morning and when "Boomer" came on it all went to shit. Terrible delivery, appalling timing and worse, a complete lack of play by play. He'd babble randomly about his stupid song...

    SOSH Running Dogs

    Yeah I have just entered taper (yay!) and did 30/35/42 last three weekends. Sadly because of finding the time around kid stuff I couldn’t organise to go with anyone and it was fuuuuuucking boring. Today I cruised 20 and it felt amazing.

    SOSH Running Dogs

    I also suck at early runs! Sadly, middle of the day over Dec-Feb in Sydney is unrunnable with the humidity and heat of summer so I did a lot of 3.30/4am runs during those months. I have been doing 60/70km a week and barely surviving though!

    SOSH Running Dogs

    Yes, but that's not what he'd have been doing. He'd be doing like 10 one day, 40 the next, etc, varying distance. It's the life drain that astounds me. I fight my family tooth and nail to get five hours on a weekend for a long run every single week. I barely maintain 60km a week and that's...

    SOSH Running Dogs

    Holy shit you're fast, mate. 18 would be a nice temp for a run, yes, I'd enjoy that. It was 26 for me on my long run on the weekend. Your volume since December is incredible. You're talking 150+km a week. How is that even possible?

    The single biggest difference between amateurs and pros, sport by sport?

    Rugby Union in Australia, a country of around 22 million people, is a very small regional sport played almost entirely in one state, NSW, as well as Southern Queensland across the border, and only in a very small percentage of schools there that are private. It is at best the fourth most popular...

    2019 Cricket All-Rounder Thread

    A couple of things worth mentioning in your post. The Welsh don't have a national team because anyone good plays for England, which is typical of the Welsh. The English cricket team has always been a joke, full of international players from vaguely Commonwealth countries like South Africa and...

    2019 Cricket All-Rounder Thread

    The difference between Test and One Day cricket is akin to saying a MLB game is too long so they made it 4 innings, limited each pitcher to 1 inning each and put them on a pitch count, as well as tightening the strike zone and penalising every ball with a free base to force pitchers to throw the...
