    Cricket -

    1) Any of various insects of the family Gryllidae, having long antennae and legs adapted for leaping. The males of many species produce a shrill chirping sound by rubbing the front wings together.

    2) A small wooden footstool.

    3) An outdoor game played with bats, a ball, and wickets by two teams of 11 players each... A game much played in England, and sometimes in America, with a ball, bats, and wickets, the players being arranged in two contesting parties or sides.

    I love his hair. I know you don't like Pakistanis anyways, so why I said that, I dunno. But I love Andrew Hall. He has amazing eyes, and he has been through so many hard times, and now he is doing so well, I'm really proud of him!
