Daft cricket. They slog your good balls and get out to your bad ones. ~ Matthew HoggardThe lad has been in the wars.  Mothers of sons experience these heart plummeting, gut wrenching, stomach, plunging moments far more often than other mothers; that moment when the boy walks through the door with one side of his face swelling, a black eye gloriously rainbow coloured already, egg sized lumps protruding through the hair & a limb hanging at a strange angle or, in Dino's case, craddled protectively.  And they call cricket a *gentleman's game*!

One ball to the elbow [not broken, thankfully] two to the head.  Um....You'd think he'd give it away, wouldn't you, but no.

Marlow decided he needed a guardian angel just to eat his breakfast.

I once heard a comedian say that of all the sport games, baseball should be considered a rather dangerous contact sport, "after all, they have bats...." one of the few times I laugh so hard I cried.

I hope he recovers quickly.
