Mouth Almighty

Question... try to think of the most unlikely person, alive or deceased, to ever come out with a quote about cricket.

Stalin? Possibly - but remember that 'cricket' is often used as a convenient shorthand for 'Anglo Saxon eccentricity' along the lines of 'games last five days without a result' or 'half way through everyone stops for tea' - so there's a good chance that Uncle Joe may well be on record someone with a quote about the great game.

A Kalahari nomad who might not have heard of Shane Warne? I doubt there is one.

How about Linda Lovelace? That'll do: -
"Cricket is like sex films, they relieve frustration and tension."
