Last year, a parody YouTube video of bad British commentary for an NBA All Star video game went viral in the American sports blogosphere. Thankfully, British comedian Anthony Richardson is back with another crack at an American sport and this time it's
baseball rounders. And to be quite honest, mock British commentary as if it's a cricket match gone horribly wrong is the only way to watch Yankees-Red Sox these days. Some of the highlights:
"Mork and Mindy that's going for 6! No! Caught by the chap in the pajamas with the glove that makes everything easier."
"Crikey-o-blimey, it's Joseph Gordon Levitt!"
"And there's a plastic bag on the pitch, wow!"
One thing's for sure, I'm never going to be able to watch another Yankees game without thinking of Ichiro as Joseph Gordon Levitt. Also, David Ortiz is no Chris Gayle, that's for sure.

I'm English (but have lived in Australia since I was 10) I really really hope that you guys in the states can appreciate this, I think its hilarious, but it might only be because I understand cricket after watching and playing it my whole life so I get the references and deliberate misunderstandings, because believe me if you do, that is really really funny, thanks for bringing it to my attention AA
I am an american baseball and hockey fan and about two months ago i wikipediad cricket so i now can understand the sport and even watch a cricket match and therefore i an american was able to understand this and i thought it was funny. He should do one for hockey and comparing it to field hockey or soccer.
