Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all! And most importantly, a Joyful Solstice as the days will start getting longer soon! Yay!  https://m.imgur.com/t/awesome/1KytDTQ

This is getting way to serious, I was only poking fun at some of your national sports thats all, I by no means are making light of anyone who wave died while playing a game... no game is ever worth an

(note, Dec.19-no.9 edited by me voluntarily-I went too far) Just a couple of things: 1-Santa and his sleigh in real life would be intercepted and force landed if not blown out of the sky

Funny you should say that. Hockey is considered a girls game over here. We play the proper verion on grass though...

In fact, we are Olympic champions.

Field hockey, your joking right, no body contact right ? and they got all their own teeth wtf... Is that even a sport any more ?  you can have it, even our women play ice hockey over here … infact our women's team are also multi Olympic champions as well,  I suppose your going to tell me next that cricket is a mans sport or that soccer is not a university for actors that specialize in faking sports injuries....

I'll not defend football but cricket is the best bat and ball sport ever invented.

As for Olympic medals,

Those are all pagan. : ) 

Music is pagan?   Movies are pagan?  Lights?  How so?  I didn’t realize you were so jealous of Christmas.  Regardless, I’m not very religious, so I like many different aspects of the holiday.  Religious and non-Religious.  Beats the crap out of winter solstice. ;)

I, your medal count is impressive, but none of those medals are in hockey are they, the only manly sport in the universe....where men are not afraid to be seen playing it, and women come by the numbers to pick out future husbands...Here is a little fun fact for ya, I googled your Iceni warrior as I was curious and this is what I found....it said during the dig they found ancient Ice skates...maybe there is hope for you and your kin after all, maybe deep down in you there is a hockey player waiting to come out....So put those crazy cricket bats and balls away, time to get you a hockey stick, and a jersey...but i'll warn you now, once you pick that stick up and don your hockey jersey... your balls grow three times the size, you feel like your 8 foot tall , and you have an urge to start beating the shit out of everyone you see, it's also a sport you can play and enjoy a good beer while doing it...... it truly is a warriors sport....can you say that about cricket...once you played it, there is no going back to the ladies sports...

I get it, you don't have a long enough summer to get a full 5 day test match played.

No reason to lash out at cricket though.

It's not that , I'm getting to old to drink for 5 days straight....besides there is no penalty box in cricket , when you need to take a break...

Need to take a break?

What other sport stops for lunch and tea?

Not to mention stopping every time it rains.

If it's breaks you're after then cricket is the game for you.
