Is there a clown car big enough for Garcia, the Nats bullpen and the umpiring crew?

The morbid curiosity factor could actually drive up attendance and TV ratings

Seriously -“what new and excruciatingly painful way will the Nats find to blow it today? Tune in to find out!” :(

I know you're being facetious.  When the Nats are playing the Marlins at this point in the season, there's really nothing meaningful going on.  It makes more sense to pay attention to other games.  If you missed the Orioles beating the Phillies 2-0, shame on you all.

Do Brits even really follow cricket much anymore? I generally associate cricket these days with Australia, South Asia and the Caribbean.

Yes - cricket is still significant. However, it's prominence began to decline when the English Cricket Board took the Murdoch money, and placed TV coverage behind a paywall. To boost the popularity of the game, new short-form (limited-overs) versions, such as 'The Hundreds',  have been introduced  which are covered on FTA TV.

I gave up when the umpires called Bell out at first. Clear that he beat the throw and that he was on the bag when the throw hit him. So just throw at the runner to get an out? I read that Sam Clay threw a wild pith to lose it. Of course.
