In cricket, an "over" is 6 deliveries of the ball by the bowler to the batsman. They're actually trying to throw the ball past the batsman to knock the stumps (bails) off the wicket to get him out (ineligible to score).

So the "over" in today's CCC answer is indeed cricket related. At least as far as this person - who has never played (or even watched) a game - understands it. Laugh | :laugh:
