What Passes For Sports

I was cleaning out my backpack when I came upon a blurb from the sports section of a newspaper in some country I've recently been in. Here it is verbatim:

Matthew Hoggard moved into sixth place in England's list of Test wicket-tackers, surpassingAlwec Bedser's 236 victims, with an early breakthrough on the third morning of the fourth and final Test against West Indies at the riverside Ground in Durham.

Yorkshire's Hoggard removed all-rounder Dwayne Bravo in the fifth full over the day.

West Indies was bowled out for 287 in its first innings against England, forcing tea.

having sent down only 40.4 overs in the opening two days due to incessant rain, England's bid to dismiss the tourists cheaply got under way on time. The players were greeted with heavy cloud cover, but it was a misjudgment rather than a classic piece of swing bowling which accounted for Bravo, who chopped an attempted pull into off-stump, having added only a single to his overnight 43.

With Marlon Samuels the other wicket to fall in the first session, bowled by Ryan Sidebottom for 19, West Indies was 211 for six at lunch with Shivnarine Chanderpaul 92 not out and Denesh Ramdin seven not out.

    Chaim saved energy in the rotating paceline which formed an echelon across the road. As he broke from the peloton, Reuven grabbed his wheel. They worked together to maintain a gap over the charging peloton which could not organize sufficiently to bring them back. Nearing the finish, Chaim was dropped as Reuven put down the hammer in the big ring. Unable to grab hold of his slipstream, Chaim had to settle for the second step on the podium.

    See, it's all relative!

    I don't know what you mean? I understand you entirely.
