Canadian cricket

The other day, we said that the only downside of Canada was no cricket. That's not strictly true.

Here's a picture of a match taking place in Stanley Park in Vancouver. There was some fairly steady drizzle at the time, but you learn to live with that if you live in Vancouver - even if you're a cricketer.



What's that you say? You're questioning whether this picture was actually taken in Canada.

Well look closer. What's that on the right hand side?



Totem poles! If that doesn't convince you that this is cricket in Canada, what will?

Here is a totem pole in Virginia Water, Berkshire: http://www.go4awalk.com/userpics/adrianhoskins1.php

Here is another totem pole in Salford, Up North Land:

The latter of which looks suspiciously like the one in your photo. King Cricket, I put it to you that this photograph was taken in Salford.

A swarm of angry beavers invading the pitch, only to be chased off by an umpire-lumberjack crying "Aw, spoot!"

I have been to Stanley Park and seen the cricket ground there. Its actually very pretty indeed and wouldn't look out of place in the Home Counties.

My favourite cricket ground in Canada is in Beacon Hill Park in Victoria B.C. Mainly because its right next to an ice cream parlour that does 1pint of ice cream specials, oh and my in-laws live there too.

Atheist, they don't have trees in Salford.

Or cricket, really.
