LIVE YANKEE IN-GAME CHAT: TONIGHT AT 7:45

In the spirit of.......

....diverting ourselves from the onerous, demoralizing, fear-inducing and debilitating proselytizing about possible trades in the Yankee universe, I offer today, a toady insight.

The English women's cricket team ( I'm not sure they call it a team, it could be a " side" or
a " gaggle"), has just won the World's Cup for the first time.  They defeated the regular champs, Pakistan, or India, I can't remember which.

Some say those two countries don't get along very well.  Maybe we can discuss that tomorrow.

In any case, the English girls knocked down somebody's wicket.

And that is a big deal.

If you would like to hear more, I can do the research.

Meanwhile, " eat, drink, and be merry ( or Mary )" for tomorrow there could be news that will fucking kill us.

P.S. Why do they dress like hockey goalies to play that game?

John Cleese is a big fan of English women's cricket. That has no bearing on anything, but it's a little factoid to digest while we wait to see how much of the farm we give away for a mediocre starter.

By the by...in all the talk about Sonny Grayscale, it might be important to note that Texas wants to move Yu Darvish.

Darvish the loser in yesterday's 22-10 loss to Miami.

I'd rather watch the WNBA than think about the Yankees trading for Darvish, Stanton, Gray, or now Wilson. Why on Earth would they trade for yet another reliever?

You would probably like women's curling...especially when they are sweeping...

I can feature a new, supremely unusual sport each day until the trade deadline has passed.

Why do they...

Because it's a fair tactic to try and hit the batter.

Urban farmer gets the award for link of the day. I'm still a little on the fence as to believing whether they are actually Olympic athletes. Doesn't seem possible.

I like curling. And bowling, although not as much.
