What’s Your West Indian Cricketer Name?


There’s been “What’s your pirate name?”, “What’s your porn name?” and “What’s your Native American name?”, now you can find your West Indian cricketer’s name. Here’s how.

Take the surname of the US President on the day you where born, then add the name of the last British seaside resort you visited.

I realise that this is geared more to the UK, but non-British resorts could come up with some fairly exotic names.

Just to help you out, here’s a list of US Presidential terms from William McKinley (for our very older readers) to Barack Obama.

Barack Obama January 20, 2009
George W. Bush January 20, 2001 January 20, 2009
Bill Clinton January 20, 1993 January 20, 2001
George H. W. Bush January 20, 1989 January 20, 1993
Ronald Reagan January 20, 1981 January 20, 1989
Jimmy Carter January 20, 1977 January 20, 1981
Gerald Ford August 9, 1974 January 20, 1977
Richard Nixon January 20, 1969 August 9, 1974
Lyndon B. Johnson November 22, 1963 January 20, 1969
John F. Kennedy January 20, 1961 November 22, 1963
Dwight D. Eisenhower January 20, 1953 January 20, 1961
Harry S. Truman April 12, 1945 January 20, 1953
Franklin D. Roosevelt March 4, 1933 April 12, 1945
Herbert Hoover March 4, 1929 March 4, 1933
Calvin Coolidge August 2, 1923 March 4, 1929
Warren G. Harding March 4, 1921 August 2, 1923
Woodrow Wilson March 4, 1913 March 4, 1921
William Howard Taft March 4, 1909 March 4, 1913
Theodore Roosevelt September 14, 1901 March 4, 1909
William McKinley March 4, 1897 September 14, 1901

For the record my cricketer’s name is Eisenhower Aberporth.

Schome Mishtake Shurely?

Their puddings must be really dry and some seem to be served with barbecue sauce!
