Cricket

There isn’t a lot of crossover between nerdom and sporting, but cricket is just too insane not to mention. If you think baseball is a slow and boring game, you obviously have never watched a cricket match. At their longest, a cricket test match can go for FIVE ENTIRE DAYS. That’s basically sun up until sundown, five days in a row to finish a single match, AND THERE ARE TIES. Cricket is known as a test of endurance from the players, but it really takes just as much effort to be a spectator of this really bizarre sport.
