Topic: Mike Gatting
I stood next to Mike Gatting for three stops on the Victoria line on Friday afternoon.
Him of the recipient of the ball of the century, the most outrageous shouldering of arms defensive technique in all of cricket and the bloke who called Shakoor Rana a fucking cheat. I felt in the presence of greatness. He has achieved stuff. Not just got his teeth done and gone to the gym.
I felt the same when I was in a shop and Robert Plant came in - it was a menders. Anyway - he is a musical god - an absolute behemoth in the rock pantheon (not my cup of tea), I was in awe. I felt in the presence of greatness. He may of had his teeth done - unsure.
