That's because the English have been trained to cope with stuff that 
nobody else understands for approximately the last 500 years, by way of 
ball games.

--- start quote fixed playing rules ---

There are two sides, one out in the field the other one in. Each man 
that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and 
the next man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side 
hat's out comes in and the side that's been in goes out and tries to get 
those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, 
and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. 
There are two men called umpires who stay out all the time and they 
decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and 
all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all 
the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end 
of the game.
