Arguable the greatest English playwright of my time, Pinter wrote this in 1980:-
I tend to think that cricket is the greatest thing that God ever created on earth - certainly greater than sex, although sex isn't too bad either.
I wouldn't seek to suggest that it has constantly troubled me since then, but I have from to time pondered whether or not I agree with him. Finally, 32 years on, I've come to the conclusion that, on balance, he's wrong.
But that won't stop me pondering. It will just change the emphasis ie do I now take the view I do only because I've realised that I am likely to be able to enjoy one for rather less time than the other, and that is the reason for my change of mind, or are there other factors at work?
............like perhaps I had better start taking my medication again ...........
