Adam Hollioake--I thought he was going to be one of the best batsmen of his era. Then his brother Ben (also a pro cricketer) died in a freak accident and he kind of faded away.

He found himself in a sticky wicket and just went all silly off?

Yeah dying can be really hard on your career.

One might almost call that poetic, if poetry weren't the last refuge of the bearded, cricket-hating sodomite.

Cricket isn't all that genteel. Google 'bodyline' some time.

Now, golf is far more genteel.

Entering a MMA fight doesn't take much other than a pair of legs.



Leaving on those legs takes much more.

Well they do like to roll around on the ground with another mans junk in their face. I like to call it "Ultimate Man Hugging".

I'd love to see how subby's sphincter held up to facing a West Indian fast bowler.

Clearly, subby has never played Brockian Ultra Cricket.

Subby here.... I see that not everybody has appreciated the irony of the headline.

As an Englishman I was attempting to mimic the cliched American view of cricket and cricketers. I have obviously failed.

Not only have I let you down, I feel I have let myself down......

Adebisi: Clearly, subby has never played Brockian Ultra Cricket.


I HAVE played it actually.... but of course nobody would have SEEN me playing it apart from the other players, so it's rather hard to prove....

At least cricketers don't need gloves to help them catch a ball.

Yeah!
or helmets and pads like those weak as water American footballers.

That guy is the wicketkeeper ("catcher" in baseball parlance) -- he is the only fielder who wears gloves and pads.
