Three matches rained off ALREADY and they are expecting MORE rain this week — never mind the two weeks ahead.
I gather no other ICC Cricket World Cup had 3 matches abandoned due to rain.
There is one thing that we all know: it RAINS in England. That was a given. Arranging this tournament without a rain-day provision was ludicrous. It is going to distort the rankings and thus make a mockery of the whole World Cup.
Sri Lanka is racking up more points thanks to the rain than they were likely to get by playing these games.
West Indies could suffer.
South Africa is doomed, methinks.
This is CRAZY. I am NOT happy. Plus, I haven’t seen any cricket in 2-day! Yikes. Having withdrawals!
Standing Of Maine’s Recently Formed “Katahdin Woods and Waters” National Monument Threatened By Trump’s Executive Order.
This is a consequence of the Executive Order signed by Trump last week to have the validity and status of the number of National Monuments reexamined — since a President can create a National Monument on their own without Congressional approval.
This monument was created by President Obama less than a year ago, on August 24, 2016.
Republicans in Maine hate it — because it was Obama and because they want no federal interference.
This could get ugly.
Shame. I have never been. It is way far North than I have yet travelled in Maine. Acadia is about my limit.
