Benevolent Uncle Sanath is back

At the age of 41.

Sam emailed to say:

“I might write something about how he’s really old and he’s like everyone’s uncle and he’s, like, properly old.”

We asked what he might conceivably add to that sentence.

Sam concluded that there was nothing to add.

10 Appeals

  1. Where does the idea of benevolence come from in a Sanath Jayasuriya context? I don’t recall receiving benevolence from my uncles. I dole out far more avuncular beneficence than I ever received. Mug, me.

    41 is neither properly nor really old. Autumnal, perhaps. Senior, certainly. And before someone pipes up about Sanath being a baldy, he has been folically-challenged since he was properly, really young.

      It’s just from his face. We think he has a kindly uncle look.

      He’s playing two matches and then retiring, incidentally. What a comeback.

  2. My uncle once gave me $100!

  3. It’s more the fact that he came out of retirement five years ago and then retired again. Now he’s coming out of retirement again and then he will retire again.
    English players don’t do this. Bring back Goochie.

  4. Ah, he’s following the pro-wrestling retirement plan.

  5. Sanath was, Sanath is, and Sanath shall ever be.
