‘I’d love to be a coach of an American sport,’ one professional cricket coach once told me. ‘They don’t mess around.’ He is right. In baseball almost no statistic is inconceivable, nor any selection made without full reference to all the available evidence. The availability of critical evidence has a flip side for coaches : they haven’t got much chance of bluffing their players or the media. Bullshitters don’t last long.
I may be alone in this, but I think it's Gilliam's best movie.
Actually, when I first heard the name I was thinking MLB teams better stay away from David Warner because he is, after all, Ultimate Evil.
1. Holy Grail (he gets Director Credit here, alongside Terry Jones)
The scenes with 'Evil' in Time Bandits remain among my favorite movie scenes of all time. "Good question."
Btw, David Warner is great in "Time After Time" and looks so much different in the 50,000,000 things he's been in since that's it hard to remember. Aging is a helluva drug.
Just came across this book about baseball from the perspective of a cricketer. Looks like it might be an interesting read.
The stats in cricket broadcasts make baseball look like child's play. The broadcasts to my eye look like bloomberg tv broadcast. You are just inundated with data at every turn.
Well, I'm guessing he's a good low-ball hitter?
6. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
I really liked fear and loathing.
David Warner was in an episode of Doctor Who earlier this year, too. I expected him to be the villain.
Congratulations, Phil! You may remember I called this one before the series began. The England team was fairly clearly going over the hill, and these breakdowns tend to happen quickly. And unlike the Yankees, they can't just go out and buy a new lot.
Have there ever been any ex-pro cricket players in MLB?
