Now that's what I call cricket

The Stoa picks up on The Corridor of Uncertainty - an interesting cricket blog - which shows this amazing image of Denis Lillee bowling to 9 slips.

Denis Lillee bowling to 9 slips

This is playing cricket in the spirit it was intended to be played. This is playing cricket like politics should be played:
Our ground game isn't working. We're going to put the ball in the air. If we're going to walk into walls, I want us running into 'em full speed. We're going to lose some of these battles. We might even lose the White House. But we're not going to be threatened by issues. We're going to put them front and center. We're going to raise the level of public debate in this country. And let that be our legacy.
If that seems familiar it's because it is. That's because some quotes are just too good to not use again, and again.
