The day after Sachin Tendulkar announced his retirement there’s only one thing to do

And that’s make a really obvious and not-particularly-funny joke about something entirely unrelated which would have been timely had it appeared seven months ago, but which probably still wouldn’t have been original even then.

Brace yourselves…

So, hey, is Justin Timberlake’s ‘new’ album, like, all about Twenty20 cricket or what then? Hmm? Hmm?

It’s called The 20/20 Experience, you see, so maybe there’s a song about the required run-rate climbing to over nine-an-over and another about how the batsman’s just hit three ‘maximums’ in a row.

Maybe there’s a song about sitting at a county ground, wondering whether anyone among the smattering of spectators shivering in the cold really appreciates the five second blasts of a song by none other than Justin Timberlake each time someone hits a four.

One of the songs on the album is (genuinely) called Don’t Hold The Wall. Who would have expected wise words from Justin Timberlake on the subject of respecting Rahul Dravid’s personal space.

7 Appeals

  1. A different Pete

    Is there a song about winning two tickets to an England/WI T20 at the Oval? About having nobody to go with at short notice; and about sitting alone in the front row of the Peter May stand, while a grown man and his pre-teen son make several hours of constant and extremely unsettling comments about the cheerleaders?

  2. see, you’re really taking the piss now…

    excellent. (made me laugh, anyway..!)

  3. The album also contains a track called ‘Suit & Tie’, surely a biting satire of the Stanford experience, and ‘That Girl’, obviously a lovestruck ballad about JT’s love for England opener Heather Knight.

  4. In other news, Charles Colvile’s brother sits on bench surrounded by children, drinks a carton of milk, smiles, looks like the BFG.

  5. Isn’t it about sitting on someone’s step, drinking a certain chemical cocktail?

  6. Justin even sounds like a controversial run-out decision.
