I played cricket and it was fun, we agreed beforehand that there would be positive reinforcement and constant explanations. One couldn't get out before making a run and we rotated positions in the field every over but batting was in alphabetical order so we all did everything. I had a ball! I even bowled out Eagle Eye to end the most successful innings of the game. My new year's resolution is to enjoy playing backyard sports for a healthy body and to avoid passing my sporting neuroses on to my kids. My first foray into sport was not notable for its success, my toe is still sore but my x-ray shows no bony pathology so it should be better soon. This second venture was much better although it was in a sheep paddock not a backyard.

Oh how I miss my broadband.

You should join our Ultimate team, we need more women to play.

Thanks but I doubt I have the time, which means I don't have to confront my sporting neuroses anywhere more challenging than the in-laws' yard yet.
