Re: I'm going to change the world

Blackberry picking in Whitewebbs is good therapy. North Enfield is usually good for a cricket match and a pint. The away team is a motley bunch. They are drinking pints, smoking weed, and complaining, with some justification, about dubious LBW decisions. Turns out they are from the East End, representing The Camel on Globe Road. A Victorian pub, on a not insignificant road, that I used to cross every day going to work, even before I did the Knowledge. Never heard of it.

Re: I'm going to change the world

Had to look up LBW; sounds like a great gamesmanship ploy. Just don’t get caught; like a pitcher scuffing up the ball in American Baseball. Perfectly OK in my book.

If I ever make it back to London; the East End will be my hideout.

Re: I'm going to change the world

The LBW law is so complicated that most amateur teams like the one I used to play for, and the one charlie watched, play a highly simplified version of it with the benefit of the doubt (and other benefits) given to the batter.

You had to be totally plumb in front of middle stump to be given out LBW in our games; the umpires were always from the batting side.
