Looking for something to do today? Try a cricket match!

Sure it’s hotter than blazes at only 11 in the a.m. but it’s never too hot for a cricket match. The Washington Cricket League has its full schedule online with matches every weekend through the end of August.

I never thought I would advocate supporting cricket, having been brought up to think it was a wussy British sport but my friend Shriram talked me into giving it a shot, at least as a spectator, and from what I can tell it’s quite interesting. What better way to meet new people, have a great cultural experience and thoroughly heat up before traveling to Petworth to join Wayan for a cool drink?
