In many ways (like soccer), cricket is a sport whose world-wide popularity is lost on Americans. If you pay attention, however, it's quickly growing in exposure.
Peter Della Penna - editor, proprietor and Mr. Everything at TheCricketTier.com - has made it his personal mission to educate US fans on the intricacies (well, really the basics) of the sport. In the process, he has become the game's premiere stateside blogger.
To spread the game's good word, he has been putting out a series of educational posts/videos on different aspects of the game.
