Here, let me get things started.

WHOOOOOAAAA, DAMN! That was dope!

ZZZZzzzzz.... this is "basketball" right? I think I've heard of that sport game.

Dunking sucks. "Look at me! I can jump!"

Of yeah? Let's see you do it!!1!

Wake me when someone does it as good as Jordan!

So what? Blake is 6'10". He should be able to do that. Spud Webb, now there's a boy with UPS! Dunk with style when you're 5'7" and I'll be interested.

I want to watch cricket, but I need someone to 'splain it to me and I apparently need to find three days to do it in. Or four? I still don't understand how long these  games matches last.

I don't see the word "thug" anywhere in your post.

There are still three- and five- day tests, which are like a best-of-whatever series in baseball.  But the newer international format that has caught on, particularly in the Caribbean, is Twenty20.  Each side gets 20 "overs" - equivalent to 120 pitches - to score as many runs as possible.  It only takes about three hours to complete.

Seriously? I still don't. But drinking is involved, right?

I think cricket would be a lot more entertaining if you pronounced it like Lili Von Shtupp.

/How womantic

On any Pub Green in England on Saturday. And the players break for tea (which is Pints.)

ESPN 3 usually shows the Caribbean T20.  I know the Windies just wrapped up a South Pacific tour.

It's considered rude not to consume absurd amounts of gin and tonics at a match.

This would have been a lot more interesting without the comma in there

Alright, that was pretty dope. The under the leg alley pass was ridiculous.

I always felt as though this sport and I would get along.
