236-years. That is a pretty respectable age for a U.S. West Coast city — and it was, of course, established by the Spanish, missionaries, at that. Quite the history that now often gets lost in the fog.

Sachin Tendulkar & Shane Warne rang the opening bell at the NYSE this morning.
That is HOW I found out about this — not living in NYC, LA or Houston.

This is GREAT news. Cricket, given the MILLIONS of Indians, Sri Lankans and Pakistanis now living in the U.S., not even mentioning the Brits and Aussies, has a HUGE — but low still low profile — following in the U.S. You can see multiple cricket games, being played with gusto, in any of the major U.S. cities from May to October. When we went to Philadelphia in May (to pick up the Jaguar XJ8) we saw at least 4 games in progress right in the heart of the city.

So this good. I am glad. I hear that the prices are quite high, $100+ at some venues and even higher. That is a shame. It is the kids that we need at these games.

Right now I get so much cricket that I cannot keep up! A real problem. I am TRYING to watch, even in just Highlight form, Australia v. New Zealand 1st Test, Pakistan v. England 3rd Test and Sri Lanka v. West Indies WOMEN ODIs. Given that I can only justify devoting about 80 minutes a day to cricket, I just can’t keep up. I am missing much of the India v. South Africa series. Yes, this is all on the Roku via Sling.

I will try and keep you posted on this. Not sure whether they will show this on ESPN.
