I reckon when your drummer isn't good enough to play in the recording studio, you need a new drummer. Apparently George Martin and Brian Epstein thought so too.

The main difference with Cricket is that you can have two teams playing a 5-day match, and at the end of it, it can still be a draw. The commentator discussions in the slow times can be hugely entertaining too.
I just wonder who has the time to devote to FIVE DAYS OF WATCHING A GAME.

Me?

I'm really not ready for that kind of commitment.

Well it is not the whole of 5 days.
Play is scheduled for 6 hours of actual playing time each day (after two hours play is suspended for lunch, 40 minutes, and after another two hours "tea" is 20 minutes)
When the match is played in England there is a guaranteed day and a half, or two days, of rain which severely shortens the time spectators get to see play.
Rain can happen in other venues, but without the same guarantee as for England!
Of course for us Aussies, when played in England the end of play each day is 3am! (That's for us in the eastern states - Western Australia is lots different)
It can mean loss of sleep, even for my late aunt who was still sitting up watching till stumps at age 97.

I read the articles on them. My parents were little kids when they were kicked out of the Beatles.

Next to John being killed that's the part of Beatles history that bothers me the most.
Not forgetting George being taken far too soon.

Has anybody seen the Lutefisk, missing for a while

This is strange since entry in the "lottery" is accomplished by a single post. What is not clear is whether multiple posts = multiple entries. Something tells me it doesn't.
