What is it with footballers?. I can't recall anything like this happening to a cricketer - but no doubt I'm about to be corrected... Fred Trueman and the exploding Yorkshire pudding? Ted Dexter and the champagne cork? Colin Cowdrey and the vole?
Nige, who, like Mr Kenneth Horne, prefers to remain anonymous, was also a founder blogger of The Dabbler and a co-blogger on the Bryan Appleyard Thought Experiments blog. He is the sole blogger on this one, and his principal aim is to share various of life's pleasures. These tend to relate to books, art, poems, butterflies, birds, churches, music, walking, weather, drink, etc, with occasional references to the passing scene.
