trip on Monday against Illinois. It is the fo

Cricket is a pretty musical sport - a bowler needs rhythm; the ball hums (sometimes) on its way to the batsman; the batsman beats his bat on the pitch while he waits, and if he connects well with the ball, the sound it produces is sweet music. Cheap San Francisco 49ers Jersesys .So its perhaps not all that surprising that great musicians have been drawn to the game. Buddy Holly and the Crickets toured England in early 1958 and were introduced to their English namesake in the usual way such introductions are made: via a PR brainwave.Philip Norman writes in Buddy: The Definitive Biography of Buddy Holly:The only publicity arranged by the British Decca organization was a press reception at a Soho club, the Whisky A Go Go, where, in a small triumph of addle-brained PR, Americas Crickets were ceremonially confronted with two English Test cricketers, Denis Compton [fourth from left in the photo above] and Godfrey Evans [second]. The Crickets [Joe B. Mauldin, first; Holly third; and drummer Jerry Allison fifth from left] bafflement was as nothing compared to that of the cricketers; nonetheless Compton and Evans posed for photographers, showing Buddy how to hold a bat and take up guard at the wicket… If rock n roll left a questionable impression on Denis Compton and Godfrey Evans, cricket had made a lasting one on Buddy. During one of the tours London interludes, he asked a friendly journalist, Keith Goodwin, of the Melody Maker, to teach him more about the English ritual his groups name unintentionally suggested. March being still too early to find a live cricket match, Buddy had to be content to see a cinema newsreel report on the England cricket teams current winter tour of Australia.Holly, who died in a plane crash at the age of 22 in 1959, influenced a generation of rock n roll musicians. One of them was the Rolling Stones Mick Jagger, who watched Holly perform on this 1958 tour, and has been a lifelong cricket fan. Jagger himself was a pioneer in online cricket coverage - his media company, Jagged Networks, was broadcasting matches over the internet in the late 1990s, offering a live audio feed and video highlights, in partnership with Cricinfo.Theres musical talent within the game as well. Brett Lee, and many other cricketers (Graeme Swann, Curtly Ambrose, Mark Butcher, to name a few), have played in bands, though Lee remains the only international cricketer to sing a duet with legendary Indian playback singer Asha Bhosle. In his autobiography, Lee says he wrote the song, Youre the One for Me, in half an hour while Australia were in India for the 2006 Champions Trophy. I didnt tell any of my teammates what I was up to; when I went to shoot I told them I was going for a look through the streets, he wrote.Neville Cardus, who wrote on both cricket and music extensively, is flanked by former England captain Len Hutton (right) and violinist Yehudi Menuhin, who is also believed to have been a cricket fan.Need to get into the batting zone? Put on your favourite tunes.In the days before video games and Netflix, knowing how to play a musical instrument was a useful skill to have, especially on long tours. Above, England captain Rachael Heyhoe (left) and June Moorehouse play guitars and are backed on vocals by (left to right) Heather Dewdney, Jill Cruwys and Lesley Clifford, at Melbourne airport in January 1969.Before the Sprinkler dance, England celebrated an Ashes win by singing. Commentator Brian Johnston (first from left, sitting) composed a tune after Ray Illingworths England beat Australia away in 1970-71.Johnston recalled it in his book Another Slice of Johnners:After the Ashes victory we wrote a pretty awful song to a delightful old musical-hall tune. When we got back to England we recorded it at the Decca studios. Vic Lewis - the most enthusiastic of cricketers and collector of cricket-club ties - organised a wonderful accompanying orchestra drawn from all the top session musicians in London who were cricket supporters. The end product, called The Ashes Song, sounded smashing to us, though the public didnt think so. We hoped it would top the charts but in fact our total loyalties were £53.86. There was no point in dividing this up, so we decided to have a draw at the Test Trial in Hove in 1973. Who better to make the draw than the England captain? And whose name did he pull out of the hat? Yes, youve guessed it. Raymond Illingworth, none other.Cricket fans also make music. Billy Cooper, the Barmy Armys trumpeter, entertains spectators and Geoff Boycott during a Test in Wellington, 2013.Australian cricketers have their own musical ritual - the team song, Underneath the Southern Cross. In this photo David Boon leads the singing/chanting after Australia won the Ashes at Trent Bridge, 1989.Not so much team song as team bonding over a spot of music for the 1971 Indian tourists in Guyana.The pop group Bananarama form a slip cordon for an equality drive launched by Labour politician Frances Morell (batting), the leader of the Inner London Education Authority, at a school in Islington, 1985.British singer Captain Sensible, who founded the punk band The Damned, poses with a bat-guitar (for playing great hooks with, no doubt). Sensible guested on the cover of Cricket in the Jungle (a calypso by the Tradewinds) by English cricketer Adrian Wykes, who went by the name Percy Pavilion in music. And finally, heres Shaggy at an event during the 2009 Champions League T20, getting Lalit Modi to rock, presumably to his song It Wasnt Me. Cheap Jullian Taylor Jersey . -- The Sacramento Kings are set to become the first major professional sports franchise to accept Bitcoin virtual currency for ticket and merchandise purchases. Cheap Marcell Harris Jersey . Andrew Luck lost his favourite target and the Indianapolis locker room lost one of its most revered leaders when Reggie Wayne was diagnosed Monday with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee that will cost him the rest of the season. . "Theyve both been real good," said Babcock. "Havent changed our minds." A decision has seemingly been made - Sundays Group B-deciding tilt against Finland ahead - but it could not have been an easy one. Price opened the tournament with a sturdy 19-save performance against the Norwegians, yielding just one goal. TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- A pair of seven-footers ended up having a big night for Florida State.Michael Ojo recorded the first double-double of his career -- 13 points and 10 rebounds (both career highs) -- and Christ Koumadje had a career high 14 points as Florida State defeated Winthrop 100-86 on Friday.It makes it so much easier. When Ojo and Christ play big-time like that, it opens up so much for us, said guard Xavier Rathan-Mayes, who had seven points and nine assists.Ojo, a 7-foot-1 senior center, missed last season due to a knee injury. Nine of his points came from the line, where he has struggled in the past. Ojo made only 40.2 percent of his foul shots his first three years but was 9 of 12 on Friday and is making 75 percent (12 of 16) for the season.When I came back after my rehab this is one of the things Ive been working on consistently, Ojo said. This year I feel like I have to make them to leave something behind to be remembered about.Koumadje, a 7-foot-4 sophomore who is the tallest player in Seminoles history, got the first double-digit scoring game of his career as he was 7 of 8 from the field. During a 10-0 run in the first half that allowed FSU to take a 31-19 lead, he had a pair of alley-oop dunks off assists by Rathan-Mayes and Dwayne Bacon.Christ runs the lane so well, hes the tallest guy on our team and probably one of the fastest, Rathan-Mayes said. He puts so much pressure on defenses when he plays like that, when he plays with confidence and, like I said, he just opens up the floor for us.Dwayne Bacon led the Seminoles (3-0) with 15 points while Jonathan Isaac added 14 and Braian Angola-Rodas 11. The combination of Ojo and Koumadje allowed the Seminoles to have a 50-32 points-in-the-paint advantage.Winthrop (2-1) steadily whittled down the lead and got within 58-54 five minutes into the second half on a Fisher free throw before FSU went on a 9--0 run. Cheap D. J. Reed Jersey. I thought we settled down in second half, defended a lot better and executed well. We wore them down with our depth, Florida State coach Leonard Hamilton said.Xavier Cooks led the Eagles (2-1) with 23 points while Bjorn Broman added 16 and Roderick Perkins 11.Winthrop coach Pat Kelsey said he thought Florida States size ended up wearing them down. By the five-minute mark of the second half the Eagles had four players in foul trouble.We were close enough to be semi dangerous in the second half. We missed some open looks and at the same time they keep coming at you, he said.BIG PICTUREWinthrop: Non-conference road games have been difficult for the Eagles. They have dropped 20 of their last 27 and 36 of their last 54 overall road games.Florida State: The Seminoles showed off their depth as 11 players played within the first 10 minutes with eight scoring. Ojo and Koumadje played a combined 12 minutes in Tuesdays 21-point win over Iona but played 30 on Friday.CENTURY MARKIt is only the fifth time in a regular-season game in Hamiltons 15 seasons that the Seminoles have scored in triple figures. The last time was a 109-62 victory over Nicholls State in last years opener.HE SAID ITIts like getting a couple root canals playing against their talent and athleticism, Kelsey on Florida State.UP NEXTWinthrop: The Eagles conclude a three-game road trip on Monday against Illinois. It is the fourth time in the past five years they are facing a Big Ten team.Florida State: The Seminoles host Detroit Mercy on Sunday.
