Wow, that was fast! Thanks! I was especially interested in the team results.
National ChampionshipsThe Patriots have won 2 NCAA team championships, 23 George Mason student-athletes have claimed 35 individual national championships, and 13 George Mason teams have made more than 117 NCAA postseason appearances since the school opened.
You want a great party - go to one with a bunch of cricket fanatics during their championship series -- the indian and pakistan community that follows this throws some killer parties with some righteous food. The father of one of the eagle scouts in my son's troop had a party to watch a series - serious blow-out lasting until 4AM.I guess since we're bringing up non NCAA National Titles... we have a National Title in Cricket.
I felt like this pic of the guys staring at some titties was most appropriate.
And do people get riled up about the game. The host was the oncologist that treated my dad. A very nice gentle guy who also goes to my church. When the biggest rival to his team went up in point/runs/hits whatever - the man was ready to stab someone to death.I'm glad I am not the only one that can't figure out cricket.
I am not extremely knowledgeable in cricket, but I do like the natural simplicity of having their batter protect the wicket, where the batter is out if the pitch hits the wicket. This is somewhat analogous to baseball's somewhat fluid strike zone and often a source of much controversy. Using the wicket is much more deterministic.
