I'm pretty sure a lot of people in the UK are finally copping on to how underrated a day out at the cricket can be for a good laugh and getting drunk. Compared to football for example its amazing how much we can get away with in the stands. You can't have a can of beer near the stairs entering a stand at football, but in cricket you can get 10 cups of beer at a time and drink them in plain sight.
Cricket fans are also great at making a day entertaining even when the game is going away from you, pretty sure it was day 3 at Headingley and you Aussies were looking stronger and on top of the game (you'd go on to win before lunch the next day) so 10 guys around us started ripping the piss out of their mate, telling him to stand up and get some chants going only to sit down when he began and then jump up and carry on the song the minute he gave up and sat down. He was that pissed it went on for a good 30 minutes before he just called them a bunch of cunts and fell asleep.
