Dear friends, thanks for your heated discussion, I was delighted to know that my opinion for MVP is similar to yours. I was also happy to see that you have almost open new topics here. Haha!

In Britain, we tend not to call the companies that supply electricity, gas, phone service, etc "utility companies" so that would not immediately spring to mind over here. I don't know about Australia & NZ.

Yeah, sorry Chris, that was me.

I only write here for fun. Not guaranteed to stay on-topic!

American sports writing (and reporting) is a whole new topic of its own, and quite a specialised field I think, knowing little about baseball and American football.

@McTag,
Hey, McT, we're just getting Downton Abbey season 3 in the States. and the episode this week revolved around Lord Grantham's house team versus the village in their annual cricket match. Now THERE is a peculiar game, perhaps even stranger than baseball. I watched it twice and I still don't know who won. I do know it's going to provoke domestic upheavals in the season finale. My sister the expat Aussie has become a cricket nut. Nothing prepared us for that. Everything comes to a halt in her house when the international test matches come on the TV.

@MontereyJack,
This is a tea towel commentary that's probably as old as the game itself.

Quote:
CRICKET: As explained to a foreigner...

You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side thats been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay all out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game!


Simple.

Never mind, Sir. Your discussion makes this forum even more fascinated to me.
