Sport! We all know what sport is, but until recently I had no interest in it.
“Pah!,” I would say, “away with your sport”. Sometimes I would tut and shake my head. Sport was a mystery to me, something that affected others deeply and yet passed me by.
Well, no more. I’ve been bitten by the sport bug. I am a sport man now.
What changed everything was a chance meeting with three members of the England cricket team, who not only convinced me of the joys of sport, but recruited me as their new mascot. So, this summer, look out for me as I attend all the cricket games in England, waving at the fans and leading the cricket-ballers onto the pitch.
