Not Shown in the U.S.!
So for the second Test in a row the players are wearing black armbands. This time for poor, 22-year old Alzarri Joesph’s mother who died ahead of the 3rd day of the 2nd Test between the West Indies and England. I do not know the details. I assume she must have been ill. But, Alzarri did not, from what I saw, show any signs of distress the day before. He bowled quite. I like him. He has potential. This will be a setback. It is a great testament to his character that he continued to play. Him dropping out would have been a bitter blow to the West Indies. I am very proud of him ad this will be remembered for years to come. I wish him well.
WOW! Talk about flaccid.
I have watched about 60% of the 53 Super Bowls and I am quite confident that this, by a long chalk, was the most boring. It was painful. At the end I just wanted one team to get a lead so that it would not go into overtime.
This was bad. It did the sport untold harm. Cricket never gets that boring. Jeez. Yes, it was snooze-gate.

As with last year Google INCORRECTLY refers to it as
“Sri Lanka National Day”.
Nope. It is INDEPENDENCE DAY.
Though it is RECYCLED from last year, this will, nonetheless, make a LOT of people, like 14 million, very happy.
I, as the World knows, got the very 1st Google Doodle for Sri Lanka, for Independence Day, in 2013. So, I have connection …
For reasons that I cannot fathom, Google, as they also did (incorrectly) in 2015, again calls it “National Day“. NOT SO! Google should Google that. It is INDEPENDENCE DAY — 70-years.
My 2013 Google Doodle & the one in 2015.
