Cricket, Soul & Market Forces from Phil Doyle
The following appeared on Wisden Cricinfo
http://www.cricinfo.com/ during the live text
commentary of the Pakistan v New Zealand game on
"Drinks being taken. That's a break for the players, a
quick tea for us, and endless banal advertisements for
life insurance and cheap cars for anyone watching on
TV.The really unlucky ones in the UK get Phil Tufnell
selling what remains of his soul for companies that
refinance personal debt. Happy days indeed."
It's in Wisden, so it must be true.
