why would someone think that if you don't know a cricket player your not of this world?
a question was asked about some guy and someone commented that if we didn't know who this guy was were not of this world. isn't it kind of strange to think the world revolves around someone from your country?
They are called anoraks, they have no vision beyond the end of a cricket bat and presume that the rest of the world should be the same.
Of course, it is quite a compliment to be referred to as unworldly.
Hard to judge without knowing who commented, where they were from and so forth. The key detail is of course what you mean by strange - unusual, or illogical in the Vulcan sense of the word? If it's the former, then since most people are not particularly well-travelled the answer is no. I had never heard of Mario Lemieux until about three years ago, when I recall getting a reaction much as you describe!
Cricket is so boring. Especially to watch. I might have enjoyed playing it as a kid but there is so much more in life to enjoy.
We do not have to know everybody. Excuse your pal for their myopic point of view.
It is really absurd - especially when one considers that only few persons are famous worldwide. And even global superstars might not be known by some. Cricket (oh please!). I can't believe someone would act as though cricketers should be renowned and famous. Just within a section of the Commonwealth.
