A Better Reality?

I’m just back from an early evening visit to Broadhalfpenny Down and the Bat & Ball

Broadhalfpenny Down

For the first time in nearly 60 years, I’ve pretty much stopped watching Hampshire for reasons you all know, but it doesn’t stop me feeling angry and frustrated by what’s happening.

I had to go to Hambledon today with Mrs A, to check the arrangements for our twice-yearly lunch for cricket lovers and historians. Every time I go there, it triggers all kinds of positive feelings about the game I love. The first-class county game is a mess and so are Hampshire, but there is a stronger truth about the great game embodied in a place like Hambledon, with its beauty and its ghosts.

At least I think there is. Or maybe this is just the rambling of a sad old bloke who won’t accept the world as it is.
