March 17, 2007: The Day Cricket Died

While the song "American Pie" by Don McLean commemorates the day the music died (an allusion to the deaths of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J. P. Richardson, Jr) , Saturday March 17th is the day cricket died. Not only did India get wiped out by Bangladesh, but Ireland...yet Ireland effectively eliminated tourney favorites Pakistan by soundly beating them. Is there nothing sacred
in the world?

By the way, "American Pie" should be banned at every karaoke place ever. While it's a good song it lasts approximately 4 hours long and everytime I go for karaoke inevitably someone decides to sing a rousing version of it. Good God.

...anyhoo, hopefully India can find a way to beat Bermuda today. If they don't beat them by at least 150 runs they should just stop playing cricket altogether.
