That is how it is ranked, Olympic rules, baby

Gold is above everything!
If secondary places should count better why then stop at the 3rd?

GB is second on the medals table! I am in shock

Uh, that is because Her Majesty The Queen several years ago talked the Olympic moderators into adding a few

divisions that the whole rest of the world was having a problem with.

 

1. Who can make the best Crumpets and English Muffins? Answer: UK, nobody else could distinguish between the two.

 

2. Who can eat the most Fish & Chips in two minutes. The US could have won but our Barbecue Lays potato chips

     were disqualified. What kind of justice is that?

 

3. Oh yea, and then there's cricket.  What the #ell's that? No fast ball, curve or slider. You hit a fowl ball and start

     running. After watching for 6 hrs. I am wondering who the home run king is.?

 

4. OK, I bow down and have to hand you all the crown for jousting. Every body else said "screw that" and left.

 

5. You guys only took the silver in chugging beer, running and chugging it out. Us Americans kept watching

     the football game on the 'telly' and wound up crawling to the porcelain throne way after the games were

     over, So technically we actually won that one. I don't give a crapdam what the judges said.

two types of bowlers (pitchers): pace bowlers and spin bowlers

 

these bowlers put crazy spin on the ball that makes it do crazy things after contacting the ground.

 

Fast

  Spin Other

Bouncers are the scary ones to face. Especially if you like your face...

That Ozzie cricketer who died recently was hit by a bouncer.

 

Corsning. the balls can be bowled up to the mid 90s mph and from approx. the same distance as in baseball.

But If Your effort shall work out in knowledge(*) You should specify what specific have been changed!

I shall do the following: If I see a mistake, I correct it and send you a PM with the original text and the corrections (RT, English teacher by chance).

 

 

Uh, that is because Her Majesty The Queen several years ago talked the Olympic moderators into adding a few

divisions that the whole rest of the world was having a problem with.

 

And so on.

 

  B)  :rolleyes:

Especially Germany...

 

 

 

... types of bowlers ...

 

And so on.

These are things Germans don't know anything about, and they should wisely keep it like this. We should concentrate on our key abilities - building cars and playing soccer.

 

 

Bouncers are the scary ones to face. Especially if you like your face...

 

That Ozzie cricketer who died recently was hit by a bouncer.

Also for this reason.

 

 

The same ... as in baseball.

The same about baseball. We know only baseball exists. Cricket, we don't even know that.

 

 

German white water canoeing coach killed in a car accident.

 

Condolences to family and Germany.

Thank you Kutscha.

 

Regards, RT
