Sprinkler Dance...

Does sport get any better than this? Nope! Do I have the slightest sympathy for the Australians? Nope. I thought it was the Poms who were supposed to do the whinging but the Australians - team and public - went down gracelessly and - erm - whinging.

And here is a 2011 factoid with Hat Tip to Charon QC: 2011 is a prime number/sum of 11 consecutive primes ...

2011=157+163+167+173+179+181+191+193+197+199+211

Informative here, you have to admit.

Sprinkler dancing in the USA does not involve imaginary liquid. Our athletes dump an entire tub of Gaterade over the winning coach.

Interesting about the prime numbers. It makes my excitement about the arrival of 1/11/11 seem so trival.

Thats an odd looking baseball field.

Lots of sprinkler dancing in the NFL, and also by drunk rhythmless white men in casino nightclubs.

As for your math equation, the doors started slamming shut in my brain, ala the opening of "Get Smart".

Informative, for sure!
Happy 2011, White Rabbit!

Those are indeed some happy dancing blokes.

My hub will love hearing about the whole prime number thing. I think I'm too dull to really appreciate it.

Informative you are.

Thanks to all and happy 2011 back to you - the sprinkler dance was wholly unknown here until recent events in Australia. So it may derive from the NFL?? Gaterade :O!

Savvy/Catchy/JoJo/Little Flower - I haven't checked the mathematics on this so may be a complete fraud!

Earl - Basewhat?

Daisy - That is one eyebrow raising wv

Awesome moves, so hope England win the series as well as bust some great moves.

DHG - Indeed. So far so good after day 1. I'd even settle for lots of rain. But a thrashing for the Aussies would be better.

and now of course we require footage of aggers doing the sprinkler. i hear, though, that geoffrey thought his technique was 'roobeesh'.
