          • Brazil does not seem to be a particularly safe place (61 deaths / million in the last seven days). But it is not as bad as Argentina (82 / million). South America occupy seven of the ten worst countries right now.

              Dallas-Fort Worth Will Have the Country’s Second Major Cricket Stadium

              Professional cricket is coming to Dallas-Fort Worth. A combination of demographics and opportunity means that the region will be home to one of six franchises that will make up Major League Cricket. MLC received approval from the city of Grand Prairie to redevelop the former AirHogs minor league baseball stadium to become the second major cricket stadium in the country after Ft. Lauderdale.

              MLC will launch in 2022, and the redesigned complex will host games for the Dallas franchise and be the home of USA Cricket, the governing body of cricket in the United States. Cricket is the second most popular sport globally; USA Cricket says there are 200,000 regular players across the country, with more than 20 million fans and more than four million regular viewers.

              • I have to question the statement that cricket is the second most popular sport globally. Maybe second compared to each other sport!

                  Sadly, it's true.

                      Yes it is clearly the number 1 sport in the 2nd most populous (and soon to be) most populous country on earth which helps.

                      You can also add in South Africa, much of the Caribbean, Bangladesh and, increasingly, Afghanistan.

                        Russian tennis player arrested at French Open in match-fixing probe

                        Russian tennis player Yana Sizikova has been arrested at the French Open for questioning in a match-fixing investigation, casting a shadow over one of the sport’s top tournaments.

                        An official at the French Tennis Federation confirmed the arrest by French police and said a police inquiry was under way. A player was arrested on Thursday night in connection with “acts likely to have been committed in September 2020”, the Paris prosecutor’s office told the Associated Press news agency. The allegations related to match-fixing, one person briefed on the matter told the Financial Times.

                        Sizikova was released on Friday, her lawyer, Frederic Belot, told Reuters. Last September, French prosecutors opened an investigation into fraud in an “organised group” and “active and passive corruption” over alleged match-fixing in a women’s doubles match at the 2020 French Open. The investigation related to a match between Romanian pair Andreea Mitu and Patricia Maria Tig, and Sizikova and American Madison Brengle. The Romanians won the match before being knocked out in the third round.

                        • When news broke yesterday that a Spanish golfer was kicked out of a golf tournament while leading by 6 strokes, it must have really hit home for aspiring Olympic athletes who still have the Sword of Damocles hanging over their heads despite the widespread availability of vaccines and the return to normal. Yesterday I was at a youth track meet which looked no different than a 2019 youth track meet with packed crowds and no masks. However, there was one elite athlete attending the meet to watch a young relative compete, who was sitting far away from the crowd by herself. This athlete is in no way anti-social and was gracious to everyone who recognized her, but her biggest fear is a positive COVID-19 test less than 2 weeks from the Trials despite having been vaccinated.

                              If he wasn't vaccinated..rather dumb on his part...

                              “Not again,” he said, although it was unclear what his response meant. It was also unknown whether Rahm has been fully vaccinated,....

                              • I read that Rahm received the first dose after the contact tracing was revealed. He's a pro and pro's do what they need to do to remain eligible....or should.
