I wake up to a clock radio that plays BBC America, because I want to know what it's like for the rest of the world to listen to North Americans talking obsessively about sports other than soccer and cricket.

Do you have the song, "The Game Was A Close Shave When Merkle's Boner Met Occam's Razor"...?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 2:16pm Matt F:

That's the alternate title of this Eddie Bo song, strangely enough...
  2:18pm Louis Ketchum, Esq.:

Americans know nothing of sport. Unless you're talking about South Americans, of course. They invented all sorts of crazy games down there.

We know nothing of "sport," it's true. We have more than one.
