Daniel Vettori just wants to be ‘the guy with the glasses’

Daniel Vettori - Glasses Man

Everyone’s got a thing. Whether you’re Overreaction Girl, Super-keen Man or even if it’s simply that you look like a toad wrapped in human skin, it’s important to give people some sort of a handle; something they can grip onto so that they can more easily know who you are.

Daniel Vettori’s thing was that he did everything in New Zealand cricket. He was their best bowler, arguably their most consistent batsman and effectively the captain, coach and selector as well. After the World Cup, he’s not bothering with the last three, so he’ll lose his thing.

Originally, he was ‘the guy with the glasses’ so we suppose he’ll have to go back to that.

  1. But not That Guy With the Glasses?

    Dan Vettori looks exactly like someone I could have met at my student occupation in December. Probably a very nice, lightly bearded socialist who would give me some flyers about Burma.

  2. Funnily enough, I just finished watching Nostalgia Critic’s latest video before coming across this post. It featured a cricket bat, and much incredulous profanity.

    Kind of like how I’d imagine Vettori’d like to be.

  3. Would he fit into the England side?

    What about Ovary Action Girl?

    The one with all the kids?

  6. The Man With the Glasses will be the title of the next James Bond film.

  7. When he first toured England in 1999, the Oval crowd in particular tried to taunt Vettori by shouting “student” at him stridently.

    It neither helped Vettori’s education nor England’s contemptible performance that summer.

    BTW, Howe Zat, I have done your maths homework for you on the “Overheard In Our Local” thread.
