    A very nice thing just happened in the arcane world of cricket.

    The trophy reserved for the winners of every England—West Indies series always used to be called the Wisden Trophy. It's just been renamed the Botham-Richards Trophy. (Or is it Richards-Botham? )

    It's a wonderful gesture in these racially-fractured times. Ian Botham is one of the finest cricketers England have ever produced, with Viv Richards arguably the greatest attacking batsman the world has known. And the two have the closest personal friends for decades. They're both loved, admired and respected the world over.

    I grew up in a dutch cricket environment and had to play on Sundays, while my friends
    were playing the best weekend neighborhood soccer matches, I was convicted to ball
    & bat. Mind you, I was mega talented so if the stars were lucky I was batting like I
    couldn't - and wouldn't go out.

    The older I get, the more I appreciate 5-day test matches, preferably with India as one
    of the opponents.

    They play by far the best cricket in the world - technically & tactically, a bit like our
    glorified Dutch national soccer squad.



    How's that?!

    , arguably the greatest attacking batsman the world has known.

    A lovely little anecdote here. Playing for Somerset against Glamorgan, bowler Greg Thomas attempted to insult and intimidate Richards after he had played and missed at several balls in a row. He sarcastically told Richards:
    "It's red, round and weighs about five ounces, in case you were wondering."
    Richards then blasted the next delivery straight out of the stadium and into a nearby river. (For Americans: rather more than a home run! ) Turning back to Thomas, he said:
    "You know what it looks like! Now go find it."

    Word in the pits is that Big Pearl is cheating by polishing up with car wax before the race. Other complaints are that the design of the courses is racist.

    Will these allegations be proven true, or are they just some unfounded conspiracy theory being posted by some internet troll who lost his marbles due to the covid-19 shutdown.

    Marble races, too funny. It's not a major 'sport' but very dear to the hearts of fans. Made my evening

    Why Marble racing?

    JESSICA SMETANA
    MAR 22, 2020

    Greg Woods first stumbled across Jelle’s Marble Runs on Reddit, naturally. He clicked on a video link and watched a dozen or so marbles bounce off dirt walls and each other as they rolled down a sandy racecourse.

    “This is just natural sound,” Woods thought to himself. “This would be kind of fun if I called it like it was a Formula One race or something, just for the heck of it.” That was the moment that Greg Woods, Marble Race Commentator was born.

    Since 2015, millions of people have listened to Woods’ calm, compelling voice commentate events for Jelle’s Marble Runs, a popular YouTube channel dedicated to the sport (yes, sport) of marble racing. That number has grown exponentially in the past week, as the coronavirus pandemic forced sports leagues around the world to suspend their seasons and events for the foreseeable future, leaving fans yearning for competitive action.

    Since March 16, Jelle’s Marble Runs subscribers have increased more than 999% and video views are up a remarkable 339% according to Front Office Sports. As the kids say: marble racing is having a moment. The sudden onslaught of marble racing enthusiasts seems to stem from a March 15th tweet, where a video from one of Jelle’s early YouTube races was ripped and posted with the caption: “Day 4 without sports: Marble1 racing is intense!” As of March 22, the tweet has more than 34 million views and 240k retweets.

    This small lake outside Stockholm, Sweden, emits otherworldly sounds as Mårten Ajne skates over its precariously thin, black ice. “Wild ice skating,” or “Nordic skating,” is both an art and a science. A skater seeks out the thinnest, most pristine black ice possible—both for its smoothness, and for its high-pitched, laser-like sounds.
