Oh, so we can blame the Brits for baseball then? I'm not familiar with
rounders or cricket, but if they are similar to baseball, I think I'll pass.
I just can't mesh with baseball. It tends to lull me to sleep.
In retrospect, I may have been harsh on BBC America. Not only might it be
more exciting than baseball, but I managed to catch a much younger Rowan
Atkinson in some show they call "Black Adder" several weeks ago. I didn't
realize "Mr. Bean" had a previous gig.
I used to love watching "The Goodies" as a kid. "Benny Hill" too, though I
imagine the Brits are still trying to live that show down.
