Britweek 2014: Hollywood Ashes Cricket Match
You couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day for a wicked googly or two. A perfect Sunday with free Pimms, a picnic, and a friendly English bulldog who came over to investigate our lunch. It was a smaller crowd than matches in the past, but that didn’t stop the enthusiasm of the two legendary rivals: England vs. Australia. It appeared to be a more casual affair this year, except for raucous taunting from the Aussie fieldsmen. This match, played every few years at Woodley field in Van Nuys, has attracted a number of notable players, spectators and commentators in the past. Five years ago, the last time we made the trek, Tracy Allman kicked off the festivities. Piers Morgan was on the schedule this year, but didn't get a confirmed sighting.
