There are two kinds of conversations I have with my boyfriend. One of them involves sports that I believe people play to avoid paying taxes to the British, and the other involves university-sanctioned necromancy.

    1. I used to coach cricket at the ol’ schoolhouse, so I get what The Beau is saying. Baseball analogy: Australia beat Pakistan by scoring some runs to go ahead in the bottom of the ninth, before the third out.

    2. I have seen “Lagaan”. It was hella long, but it was actually pretty good.

    3. My necromancy is never sanctioned by anyone or anything other than my loins.

    I would like to make a special comment that I forgot to do earlier, in which I say that I have extreme respect for my participants and my own ethical responsibilities. I would never breach any ethics agreements with my university, even if it meant I got a Science article by being the first person to image the brains of zombies.

    Also to Jason: I actually know some about cricket, so I sort of understood what he was talking about. But that knowledge is 100% gleaned from watching Lagaan, which means that I believe that Australia took the win via a rousing dance routine.

    In addition, it might be 10% gleaned from a salt shaker and ketchup bottle explanation by you the last time we talked about cricket. And if those two numbers don’t add up, remember that in sports you should always give 110%.

    Yes, I believe in that particular match Australia’s fielders did a high-kicking line that would’ve made the Rockettes proud.
