|What is the attraction in this?|
So now that the serious sporting purpose of beach volleyball has been confirmed, Fantasy Bob thinks it is time that the same question is turned on a proper sport. Is cricket a sport or a sexual attraction?
FB acknowledges that the breathless hush that goes round the close when he runs up to bowl may no longer have that undercurrent of sexual frisson among any ladies on the boundary. Instead there is a solicitous concern that emergency medical treatment might soon be required and a hope that should mouth to mouth resuscitation be necessary, some else will step up to the plate.
But is it time to bow to the MTV generation saturated with sexualised imagery and pep cricket up? There are many opportunities
- polishing the ball must be done in the groin region only
- boxes will be worn outside the trousers and may be individually designed or coloured. Animal heads, Viking helmets, space rockets may well be popular designs.
young ladies can be given practical guidance on how to apply a grip to a bat handle……………..
Enough! This speaks for itself.
Let beach volleyball be beach volleyball with beach volleyball values. Heavy breathing is not needed in cricket, unless of course you’ve just had the enthusiastic running of a junior at the other end turn an easy single into a scrambled two. Let it stay that way.
