Un-American Sport

I'm a bit busy today trying to get multiple projects done simultaneously, but in passing I'd like to point people to Cheryl's report on an international cricket match that was full of action, came down to the last ball, and had a final result of 340-340. Yes, both teams scored 340 runs and the match ended as a tie. (Not "match drawn," which is something different in cricket.) Even basketball games don't have that much scoring. Of course, Americans apparently think that Ties Are Evil, so this must be a highly unsatisfactory result. Maybe that's another reason sports like soccer and cricket never catch on in the USA.
