    Why do people like cricket?

    It seems such a boring sport... But hundreds of millions of people like it, why? I tried to watch a match once ,England vs Pakistan, and I fell asleep before half was played. I don't get it!

    It's helpful if you fancy a nap in the afternoon but can't nod off, as you have discoverd.

    I don't know about the sport, but a cricket makes an excellent bait for panfish!

    An Australian friend once explained to me that "it is like a real life game of chess that only people who understand the strategy appreciate..."

    This doesn't really explain it though... I can't recall the last time I tuned in with a few million others to watch a game of chess.

    The other friend I was with had the real answer "I think its the perfect spectator sport if you like to sit around with your friends and drink beer for hours or days on end... the game progresses so slowly everyone can keep up - even if they are half baked with a carved out watermelon helmet on their head".
