So I went to England in ’99? with a choir group from college (luckily including some good friends such as Amanda, Bob, and Missy) and while watching rugby or cricket or some other almost entirely foreign sport on TV there was an ad for "Scrumpy Jack" beer etc.  Hard to say what was better; the name, the way it sounds on TV in a British accent, or just the whole experience.  Anyway when Amanda and her parents came for Thanksgiving she brought me this can of Scrumpy Jack Premium English Cider they had found in the British shop in Santa Monica – I heartily enjoyed it Saturday in a tall beer glass but alas I could find no cricket on the telly! – Telfer

  1. ahhhh . . . scrumpy jack! I distinctly remember kicking back in an English hotel room one afternoon with you and – pray tell, was it David Stillman or Brent Gould? – watching a spot o’ cricket on the telly, and unexpectedly feeling rather foreign in the process. . . . 🙂
