In the Weeds

Romania and Malta played a cricket match, earlier today.  Watching the replay, for absolutely no good reason, I was reminded of playing baseball as a kid.  When the first ball was knocked out for 6 (basically the equivalent of knocking one out of the park in baseball) the fielder had to go out in the weeds to retrieve the ball.

I laughed out loud.  He had to wade out there and look for the ball.  It wasn't a bad looking place.  As a matter of fact, the weeds almost looked cultivated on the exclusive Malta field.  Still, it was brown, dead-looking weeds that an international athlete had to wade through to get a ball to put it back in play.

Just after that happened, another ball was hit into the country club parking lot.  No one flinched.  Hope everyone has their Ferrari insured.
