My philosophy about cricket is to rant and scream and bash any and all fuckers who play badly, whilst representing their countries.
Luckily, not everyone is an angry fuckface, like me. These fella’s seem cool.
THE PHILOSOPHY OF CRICKET The self-styled ‘sporting outfitters of intellectual distinction’ at Philosophy Football find quotes from philosophers about football and slap them on a T-shirt with name and squad number added.
This summer they have launched a their philosophy cricket range with opening bat CB Fry’s musings on cricket as a philosophy. As a cricketer CB Fry captained both Sussex and England. A gifted footballer too, he played professionally for Southampton and Portsmouth, making his England debut in 1901.
For a time he was also holder of the world record for the long jump. A superbly gifted cricket writer and academic off the pitch CB politically managed to combine standing unsuccessfully for Parliament as a Liberal Party candidate with the bizarre idea ideas that if Germany could be persuaded to play England at test cricket WW2 might be avoided.
The T-shirt is available from www.philosophyfootball.com with the search now on for other cricket quotes for T-shirted immortalisation.
Go visit them, and make yourself look Suave too.
