Reflections: NFL in London, cricket in New York

20111024-010908.jpg
At Wembley, in front of a noisy crowd of 76,981, a player by the name of Dez Briscoe scores a touchdown. Just one moment in a marketing behemoth’s strategy to increase a sport’s popularity in a foreign land. Flying into JFK, I look out of my window and down below me I see a game of cricket taking place quietly, almost anonymously, in Queens, New York.
