Test Matches are brilliant. Where else would you hear something like this on the ball-by-ball coverage on the radio:
"The chicken is remonstrating with the steward for the return of the dolphin. A policeman is now coming to get involved. The chicken is dancing back to his seat as the steward carries the dolphin away."
Also sighted: Willy Wonka and some oompa-loompas, Hulk Hogan, The Incredible Hulk, the Super Montys, Batman, a ghost (and accompanying team of Ghostbusters), some scousers (complete with curly perms, moustaches and "calm down, calm down" hand motions), two daleks, some Fred Flintstones, lots of 1970s cricketers, a pirate gang....... and many, many more.
It's a cracking day out.
The cricket was a touch dull, but the crowd was *brilliant*.
