It’s been a long time since I followed the cricket, or any sport really. Writing about it up close as a correspondent for Inside Sport kinda put me off. Enough that until this week I couldn’t have told you who Tim Paine was. Well, now I know.
He’s the guy who sent the dick pic. And, like, the Aussie cricket captain or something.
But I’ll always think of him as ‘that dick pic guy’.
I’m guessing that didn’t occur to him as he dropped pants and focussed his phone on the middle stump.
I’m honestly at loss to understand what goes through any bloke’s mind at that point. Other than for medical purposes why would you ever do that? It’s not like it’s ever going to make a pretty picture.
Allow me to speak for all of womenkind when I reassure all of mankind that if we ever want to see a picture of your dick we'll ask you for it. There is absolutely no need to send us one otherwise, and yes it's sexual harassment 🙄
Surely it'd be like Bladerunner and Deckard's searching for the right bit of detail in the image: enhance 224 to 176, pan right, enhance 34-46, track left... and for what?
Turns out it was a no-ball anyway.
Ohhh that's who he is, I occasionally saw the name pop up on my social media but I didn't look him up. Now you have saved me the trouble.
I’m always reminded of what the droid from Red Dwarf used to say- “ahh yess - the old last chicken in the shop look..”.
A joke is one thing, but there is a reason they’re called private parts…
JB what was it about being up close to cricket that put you off?
Some people just have too time on their hands.
Hmmm…what shall I do today?
It is beyond my understanding also. There are a lot of instances of this in the US, but it has faded as of late.
