Richie Benaud signing books

We have a friend who works in Waterstone's in Manchester. Richie Benaud's there today signing books. Meanwhile we're snowed under with work at a job from which we're being made redundant - work that one out.

We're insanely jealous that our friend's going to get to meet the world's greatest living human and probably won't even appreciate it. It's probably for the best that we're not there however. We would almost certainly say something weird. We don't know what it would be. We never do.

You can buy his book, My Spin on Cricket, here, or if you're a bit mental and don't mind spending extra money on what is essentially the same thing, you can get a hardback version. Personally, we recommend getting a signed copy because there's every chance that he touched it with his other hand while he was writing his name.

Dammit!

After the great news about Jones(G), you go and spoil my day by telling me that I'm going to miss a book signing by the great man himself.

Marvellous.

If you can work out where he's signing next, maybe you can intercept him en route.

He's pretty old. How fast can he possibly move?

I miss the great man on my TV. Sky have brilliant coverage but it's just not the same.
