    Norman Gordon

    A nice video on CNN on Norman Gordon who turns 100 this year. Thought the rest of you might be interested in it.

    Video - Breaking News Videos from CNN.com - 99-year-old cricketer reflects on game

    From Wikipedia as well:

    Should Gordon survive to 23 March 2011, he will surpass New Zealander Eric Tindill, who died on 1 August 2010 about 4 months before his 100th birthday, as the oldest Test cricketer of all time

    My word he looks good on it. Seems sharp as a tack too. Sincerely hope he makes the ton.

    But if his accent was more Yorks than yarp his "cricket's not like it was in my day" is pure Boycott.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."
    - Barney Ronay on Mario Balotelli
