Do you know Flanders and Swann "a song of the weather"?

I LOVE Flanders & Swann!   I've sung "Ill Wind" and "The Gasman Cometh" several times.

Demercia, thank you for sending us Rain,  Yah!  I will take that as a fair exchange for your sunshine three days ago.

You are welcome. We have now had three days of sunshine  ;D, so a very fair exchange.

Although we now desperately need rain to rescue the latest cricket match. :)

I've never understood cricket, and several Englishmen have tried to explain it to me.

Don't feel alone there, Elkhound.  A very dear friend of mine who is British tried to explain cricket to me on multiple occasions.  It might have worked better if we could have sat down together and watched it during the explanations.  Sadly, this was all done via the internet with me in Florida and him in Derbyshire, so it didn't work very well.  :D
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

OK, let's get somewhat on topic.  What are the more popular sports in Gwynned?

Other than Sword practice and Archery?  Do you suppose the play a round of Golf across the Purple March?

And Demercia, we are still raining.  ;D

Maybe football, which would get banned from time to time for causing too many injuries.
And Laurna, we have the rain here today.

According to Wikipedia, tennis got started in the 12th C. in the primary world.

What about field hockey?

Polo was originally invented as a training exercise for light cavalry.

Wasn't there a fanfic that had the young men playing some sort of sport? Or am I thinking of a discussion thread?

By 'football', you mean something like rugby, or Australian "rules"?  (I put the word in quotes, because I am not sure what rules there are besides "stomp the s*** out of whoever has the ball.")

Was thinking soccer, not sure what "Australian rules" are (except beat England on every possible occasion !).
