Watching Orioles vs Boston right now. The pitcher for the red sox is Richard Wright, a knuckle baller. He throws about 90 percent knuckleballs. If you ever want to watch an interesting pitcher with a weird style check him out. Looks like he's throwing a whiffle ball... It is all over the place. LOL. Weird and Funny to watch.

Funny that, three of the four most popular sports in N/America were girls games when I was a kid in England.
At school no boy would be caught dead playing rounders, hockey or netball, real boys played cricket, football (soccer) & rugby.
Well, at least you took up one "real mans" game - rugby, as American Football, shame you couldn't get the name right.

And the strange way they play football, strewth four hours to play a one hour game.

I'm not sure about in England but when I was growing up netball was "Girl's Basketball" (official title) in Australia.
