Try Explaining a ‘Googly’ to Him

It seems that Dubya might have great taste in sports:

US President George W Bush said this week “I’m a cricket match person” – and he’ll have a chance to show it at a cricket event during his brief upcoming trip to Pakistan.

 

Details were hard to come by, but White House aides said on Friday that Bush was expected to mingle with cricket-playing children and meet of the sport’s professional players during his stop in Pakistan.

 

It was unclear whether the US president, a avid baseball fan, would bat or bowl.

 

“It is planned as an opportunity for him to watch and learn a little bit about it. But, you know, who knows what he’ll do?” said Bush national security adviser Stephen Hadley. “I have not asked him.”

However, I suspect that Dubya is not a “cricket match person” at all, but rather just “not a Bollywood” person: 

The president himself left no doubt that he’d rather play cricket than see a Bollywood movie, telling reporters on Wednesday that given the choice: “I’m a cricket match person.”

 

“As I understand it, I may have a little chance to learn something about cricket. It’s a great pastime,” he said.

Heck, if you gave me the choice between watching an opera or baseball, even I would go with baseball.
