Yesterday one of my students, who is in the faction I call "The Cricket Crew," asked me, "Do you know anthropopithecus?" I replyed, "Yeah I know anthropopithecus! He is the mascot of the Tanigawa Cicket Team." This responce, owing to the fact that the Cricket Crew(TM) is obsessed with cricket despite never seeing or playing cricket, made them very happy indeed. Questions then followed their usual pattern: how many times do I play cricket, do I like cricket, do I like watching cricket, and back to how many times do I play cricket. It is the circle of cricket my friends. The circle of cricket.
