From today's featured article - Cricket

Cricket is played all over the world by eccentric idiotic police constables and others who would like to emulate them. It is also played in Australia and Yorkshire, and unlike rounders, it is not the same as baseball.

It is an apparently pointless sport with rules which few people really understand, involving 11 men standing around in a field who occasionally run around, but on the whole stand completely motionless hoping something might happen. Cricket is universally considered one of the most boring and tedious of sports, but continues to be popular the world over with the boring and tedious.

People have always been hitting balls with sticks, and archaeologists agree that certain quirks unique to cricket indicate that the sport was played in ancient or even pre-historic times. Evidence includes:

  • The side-on stance of batsmen suggests that cricket pre-dates the evolutionary processes that caused the eyes to move from the sides of the head to the front of the face;
  • The straight-arm action of (most) bowlers suggests that cricket may date to a time before the development of the elbow joint in modern apes;
  • There is no archaeological evidence for any other sport involving the consumption of meals during matchplay (with the obvious exception of indoor sports such as darts and poker). This practice may have arisen from ritualistic cannibalism where the proto-human batsman was killed and eaten after being given 'out' by the umpire.
  • Cricket is not rounders. (Full article...)
