I am not one given to blogging about sport, its icons or events. In fact (apart from a vague monitoring of Essendon’s progress or sadly, lack thereof), my interest in spectator sport is minimal – I would far rather be out there playing myself. However, I was very disturbed today by Warnie’s latest geurnsey in the Herald Sun today. Ok, he is probably the best thing to happen to Australian cricket in recent times. He is one of Australia’s loved larrikins, in a “Geez, did you hear what Warnie got up to.” kind of way… But does this make him worthy of a doctorate? Dr Warne? For what? His ball handling skills? Honary or otherwise, “that’s just not cricket”, so to speak. Actually, in the photo (on page 5) he looks more like a crossing lady in his dashing orange robe than someone who has earned a doctorate. If you look closely he is wearing his trademark zinc too. I wonder what other Aussie achievers might be considered for honourary doctorates.
