New research re: James Anderson

Fresh from (me imagining him) being dropped for the 3rd against NZ, Columbus Area youth club (Ohio) have published their new statistical study into James Anderson's charm, wit and charisma. They noted a distinct lack of anything to remotely empathise with during his interview on Cricket A.M this weekend.



A. James Anderson

B. That strange smell in the fridge, maybe it's that couscous from Easter.

C. Gout



They also noted that he managed to show no sense of humour or likability in the 6 minute section of the show, being woefully shown up my a chatty, thoughtful and highly likable Chris Read. Finally concluding that he's not even got a vaguely interesting nickname listed on Cricinfo, making the label for this article suitably uninteresting. Thought provoking reading I'm sure you'll agree. Not sure how they managed to catch the show from Ohio, but I'm sure they caught it better than Ian O'Brien.

I came *that* close (does thumb-and-forefinger-very-close-together thing) to totes falling in love with Chris Read after seeing him on Cricket AM.

Luke Wright was reasonable last week as well, he's too much of a pretty boy for you i guess?

Graham Taylor was annoying as anyone connected to football is. instantly back on about that bloody game without even mentioning what sport he's talking about. I have plenty of football/potato theories, but that'd be wasting a whole blog entry...

and Mr and Mr is rubbish now.

Miriam said...

Y, you're absolutely spot on re Luke Wright, he seems nice enough but I'm just not into the pretty pretty boys.

My mum thinks Saj Mahmood "isn't actually that ugly" - so I think she'd be with you regarding the pretty boy issue, Miriam.

Jimmy is the Jordan Catalano of cricket, he leans great but when he speaks it's painful. PAINFUL.

That's the bod from Requiem for a Dream? he was good in that at least.

be excited!

That would be the one! I haven't seen Requiem, my Jared Leto knowledge is limited to episodes of My so-called Life.

"You know those guys? Up in the mountain?"
"What guys?"
"Who make snow. Like, as their job."

I was told recently by someone who should know that "Jimmy might look a miserable git on the telly, but in reality he's got a cracking sense of humour".

If that's true, then he certainly hides it well.

Spigot said...

Well, septic mel, I've always had to get through the one where "no he's not a complete prick, he just looks like it when he's bowling, he's just a normal man", and now we have to push that even further to think he's got a sense of humour too?

Septic Mel said...

My informant did sense my disbelief but insists that it's true. I am, however, yet to be convinced and will hold off booking him for a post-season After Dinner Speech for a little longer.

Thanks for that warm applause, I hope you found the Tart au Citron was as delicious as I did.

Now, I remember when I to the supermarket once. I bought some eggs, beans, shampoo, toothpaste (Colgate), bin bags..........

Fair point. Have you ever had Earl Grey dribbling down your thighs? It's a first for me, I can tell you.
