My life is complete.
Hahaha. Knew it would be something like this.
June 5, 2009 at 12:02 pm
That was truly wonderful. Thank you Simon C, and thank you, O King, for bringing this into my life.
June 5, 2009 at 12:03 pm
That’s fucking brilliant. You lucky bugger, I had all sorts of regicide planned for you, if it was shit.
June 5, 2009 at 12:13 pm
I sent it to Peter Moores in an attempt to get Rob selected.
He never replied.
June 5, 2009 at 12:20 pm
I was prepared for anti-climax. But no- the king delivers. All hail the king!
June 5, 2009 at 12:22 pm
Suave, do you just hang around this site so you get to use your second favourite word as often as possible?
June 5, 2009 at 12:28 pm
You’ve been “dugg” – my first.
Sublime, KC; sublime.
SimonC – you are a genius – and O king – you are his Archduke Rudolf. Utterly fab. The regal wave! The trotting hooves! The noble and discreet kicks to the flanks!
June 5, 2009 at 12:33 pm
I, like many, feared you had given it too much of a build up.
If anything, you were too restrained.
Just a pity he won’t play today.

I didn’t realise that the internet had enough computing power for something so complex.
June 5, 2009 at 1:01 pm
Words fail me.
June 5, 2009 at 1:32 pm
It is now my background.
It will be a bitter disappointment If he doesn’t at least bring on the drinks this evening in this majestic manner.
Marvellous work SimonC, marvellous.
June 5, 2009 at 1:35 pm
Fat blokes like Samit Patel can look up to the Key God. Here is living chubby proof that the fat shall indeed get on the world stage if only as drinks boy and general KP fag!
June 5, 2009 at 1:51 pm
Simon C and KC I owe you everything
June 5, 2009 at 2:21 pm
Wow. Just wow.
June 5, 2009 at 3:49 pm
omg, that looks like a capibara. Whats that funny rat like creature it appears to be riding though?
June 5, 2009 at 4:08 pm
Rob Key could be in!!!
June 5, 2009 at 4:28 pm
Utterly marvellous – thank you Simon C and KC! I just hope he rides back in to the St Lawrence Ground thus.
And crikey at Suave’s news…… *gulp*
June 5, 2009 at 4:32 pm
He’s definitely playing!!!!
*has complete faith he will do well………….*
June 5, 2009 at 4:39 pm
Can’t believe you managed to hold on to this piece of genius for so long!
June 5, 2009 at 5:04 pm
Looks as though he’ll be playing at no. 3…
Play starts in twenty minutes!!! (If it doesn’t rain)
That is the most awesome post ever by the way.
June 5, 2009 at 5:22 pm
Thus spake the King and the Key doth play.
June 5, 2009 at 5:40 pm
The BBC just made my day:
“1735: The tournament is going to be officially opened by… the Duke of Kent. (That’s the real Duke of Kent, not Rob Key, you understand).”
June 5, 2009 at 5:47 pm
He made the team!
Wow. That really proves the power of blogging.
June 5, 2009 at 5:56 pm
Superb KC, and on the day he starts for England. A truly majestic day.
June 5, 2009 at 6:35 pm
Bypassed at 3 by Shah – boo hiss!
June 5, 2009 at 7:14 pm
10 off 8, sterling performance!
June 5, 2009 at 7:20 pm
3rd best strike rate after Bopara and Wright too!
June 5, 2009 at 9:05 pm
Why did Key bat so far down the order? Why did England bowl so badly?
Why can’t I I tear my eyes away from the majesty of his Robness’ regal wave?
June 5, 2009 at 9:06 pm
Who sticks a specialist batsman at #6?
Paul Collingwood, that’s who.
June 5, 2009 at 9:56 pm
The Guardian’s OBO got it spot on when they called Darron Reekers Rob Key’s dad, though.
June 5, 2009 at 10:18 pm
Surely shome mistake?
Our Rob Key a Tory? Mind you, he does have the Cameronian glare about him here. Thatcher must be quivering.
June 5, 2009 at 10:43 pm
This is beautiful – I can’t look away!
We were at today’s game and every time a batsman came in who wasn’t Rob Key , we got upset.
June 6, 2009 at 12:06 am
That truly is a magnificent capybara. Shame it wasn’t fielding for England tonight, even without opposable thumbs.
Feel bad for Bob, he’s going to get scapegoated for not being KP. Noone is.
June 6, 2009 at 2:25 am
The greatest day of my life. The Rob in all his splendor !
June 6, 2009 at 5:38 pm
Eldershot, imagine my face when I found my local MP had a cricket-playing namesake. For quite a while I couldn’t see the name “Rob Key” on a teamsheet without seeing a portly old man smashing sixes about the field…
Well, I was half-right.
