Quote of the day

What is both surprising and delightful is that spectators are allowed, and even expected, to join in the vocal part of the game…. There is no reason why the field should not try to put the batsman off his stroke at the critical moment by neatly timed disparagements of his wife’s fidelity and his mother’s respectability.

    “Excuse me, batsman! It occurs to me that your spouse is well acquainted with the lower ranks of Her Majesty’s navy, and your mother came to this earthly plane via a liaison between a tainted bishop and a woman of the night!

    So many different comments came to mind….perhaps it’s best I simply laud the creative genius of George Bernard Shaw. 🙂
