I'm surprised, given your upbringing and temperament, you never got into cricket Cod. Test Match Cricket is the finest sport in the world bar none.

There's a strong fear/violence factor in cricket too. Have a look at this spell of bowling from Mitchell Johnson (who bowls 150kmh+) during Australia's recent Test series victory in South Africa:

Cam ~ I never could get into it, although I used to watch it live on a pleasant Sunday afternoon with friends. Maybe Mike Gatting getting his face smahed in in 1986 put me off it. haha


I played rugby, squash, tennis, football (soccer), and rowed. I continue to play tennis.
