Next, when baseball does cricket

David Brain of Edelman kindly gave the blog a mention this afternoon, so it only seems fair to do the same thing for him…though I suspect I’ll benefit more.

Actually, I’m very happy to as in the post before his mention of me, David’s embedded a video clip of one of my favourite ever sporting moments (though I’m not sure if I saw it on TV when it actually happened, given I was only 4 at the time). 

David’s juxtaposed (and there’s a word I don’t use very often) the clip against another, in which the most exciting moment ever in American Football took place when one team decided to start playing rugby.  Lessons to be learned, methinks.

    Rugby now . . . . they’ll be stealing irony off us next! It’s the thin end of the wedge mate.

    It’s much easier to play Rugby when you’ve got a helmet on, as Sebastian Chabal would know!

    True – with a helmet on your can cry your eyes out and nobody will be any the wiser.

    Fair play. I actually love the man (yes, really). He’s a legend.

    Ooooohhhh Chaballllll…as we say in France.

    Did anyone see the photo of Chabal in The Times before he developed his overgrown mullet and beard. Unbelievable! Now I know why the French ladies love a bit o’ Seb.
