  1. As a dyed in the wool cricket fan, I’ve always been intrigued by baseball, so I’m severely tempted by the Orioles vs Red Sox game that’s on the Thursday night, about 200 yards from the hotel. You can just rock up on the day and buy a ticket, too. I’m down to demonstrate something during the Thursday evening for the first hour of the match or so, but if it’s anything like cricket it’ll go on for hours, won’t it? (Even a “short” cricket match lasts for three hours or more)… Plus missing some of the game won’t matter, as I won’t have a clue what’s happening, anyway!
