Me too, but cricket was nothing, for five years I had to freaking play RUGBY, you have idea how much I loathe rugby. Thats right for 5 years i had the great honour of being charged at by a bunch of people 250 times my size, and then flung in mud.
Cricket might well be boring but atleast its not unpleasant.
as long as you don't end up as a paraplegic or with a squashed nose, you are definitely a better person for having played rugby !!
American football ?? Padding? helmets ??
