Benaud steps down

Sad. But now I guess we’ll see how accurate the 12th Man’s portrayal of the handover process was.

I’ll never be able to think of Benaud as anything but a constipated turtle thanks to someone who made that comment in my youth, but cricket won’t be the same without him.

Oh well, as long as Bill Lawry doesn’t get more air time out of this I’ll be ok.

Nathan runs St Eutychus. He loves Jesus. His wife. His daughter. His son. His other daughter. His dog. Coffee. And the Internet. He is the campus pastor at Creek Road South Bank, a graduate of Queensland Theological College (M. Div) and the Queensland University of Technology (B. Journ). He spent a significant portion of his pre-ministry-as-a-full-time-job life working in Public Relations, and now loves promoting Jesus in Brisbane and online. He can't believe how great it is that people pay him to talk and think about Jesus.

    1. The 12th Man didn’t spoil Tony Greig for me as much as he spoiled Bill Lawry. I now can’t listen to Bill – mostly because of “Bill Lawry: This Is Your Life”

  1. I can’t listen to either of them without being filled with rage. It isn’t good, since I watch cricket a lot. The best scenario for me would be if Lawry, Greig and Healy (incidentally, also a pillock) somehow were rendered physically unable to speak. A swift cricket bat to the larynx would suffice, or perhaps a kookaburra to the jaw.

    1. You know that if that happens now and people look for evidence online they’ll find your comment.

      Perhaps you should organise some sort of celebrity cricket event for sick children and get these guys along. With Shaun Tait. He can bowl bouncers at them.
