Prince William Is A Bat Man


Prince William of Wales got himself all gussied up in his sporty white best to show his prowess in the sport of cricket in a beer pub match at the Bruern Abbey in Bruern, Oxfordshire. As I understand it, Prince Wills was playing for the King’s Head Inn in Bledington … which, as it turns out, means I don’t really understand what all of these British words actually mean. Here are the photos, nonetheless:

Yeah, I can’t even lie … I have no idea what a beer pub cricket match is … in fact, I don’t even really understand the game of cricket. Alls I know is that Prince Wills looks pretty damn spiffy in his bright white outfit and he looks kinda cute with that boat oar that passes for a cricket bat. I’m not sure what it is, exactly, but I love seeing photos of the British princes engaged in their various sporting events. It’s like, they want to be seen as sporty-type guys but they usually play sports where they don’t actually get dirty. While I’d like to see the guys mix it up a bit, I don’t think I need to see them playing football or basketball … but maybe they could at some point take up the sport of rugby? I think that would be a jolly good time :D

    I usually only watch cricket if my team is playing the last innings and its halfway through said last innings, but I would watch the whole thing to see Wills play!

    effete knob plays the most tedious game ever invented to polite ripples of yawn-inducing applause.

    what’s with your inexplicable fasciantion for these right royal muppets? they’re a) straight and b) ruling class upper crust facists and c) they look more and more like Prince Charles.

    I don’t get it.
