"Brethren, and if a man be overtaken in any fault, you, who are spiritual, instruct such a one in the spirit of meekness, considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.  Bear ye one another's burdens; and so you shall fulfill the law of Christ.  For if any man think himself to be some thing, whereas he is nothing, he deceiveth himself."

-Galatians 6:1-3

Raw Pain

"There can be raw pain and bleeding where so many thousands see the inevitable ups and downs of only a game ."

-C.L.R James, Beyond a Boundary

How painful for the West Indies.  To fall five runs short.  Cricket, like life, is truly a tragedy.

Cricket and Eternity

Albeit we are in the Cricket World Cup, I can't help but miss test cricket as it is one of the few beautiful things in the world.

The Ashes cometh soon!

"The English are not a very spiritual people, so they invented cricket to give them some idea of eternity."
-George Bernard Shaw
