    Default Jockey Club Open in San Isidro, Argentina

    This was my first Polo match, I have been to the Polo grounds in Granada but only got to see a Cricket match (second pic).

    Sometimes I think I understand everything, then I regain consciousness.

    Is the orange-shirted, jockeyless animal by the pitch fielding or bowling?

    (Enquiring minds want to know.)
    I never met a Semite I didn't like.

    Thanks, yes the horses were the real performers. As I said, I had never seen a Polo match before but I would sure go to another, did I mention the free Stella beer

    As far as I know you are our resident Cricket expert, I don’t know squat about the game but it looked like fun

    I can understand polo being perhaps somewhat popular, but cricket?? Are they British expats or is Argentina attempting to win over the Falkland islanders peacefully these days?

    If the batsman ( -er, batswoman) is running, the fellow with the ball must be catching.

    The Cricket is in Nicaragua, I think they play Rugby in Argentina.

    Well, I guess rugby would work too for their "pingpong diplomacy!"

    These delusional nitwits never give up, do they? (returning to my earlier rant of a few months ago! )

    What part of "no" don't they understand? Even Guatemala has had sense enough to renounce their claims on Belize, and Belize is a heck of a lot "closer" to Guatemala than the Falklands are to Argentina! Maybe it's time for Canada to forget about Hans Island (which has no inhabitants) and start pressing claims before the UN for Alaska! Oh well, I guess if Argentina renounces its claim, China will lay claim to it by suddenly discovering that Admiral Zheng He was actually there first in 1421!
    That's my "Malvinas" rant for the day!
