More on the Cricket Umpire

I did a little research on the cricket umpire I met at the pool. His name is Billy Bowden and apparently he is well known for his dramatic style of calling people out with his "crooked finger of doom". Marlene's nephew demonstrated it for us this afternoon - he's a cricket fanatic.

Well, Billy also now has the notariety of teaching me the rules of cricket. He even tested me to make sure I got it down. Apparently he is one of the best umpires in the world so I passed the test with some really good coaching.
