RIP Tony Cozier

May 21, 2016

Tony Cozier the well known Barbadian cricket commentator has died. The link is to the Guardian obituary.

He was a truly excellent commentator with a deep love of the game and a great recall of facts.

When Adam worked in Bermuda, he once came and commentated on the annual 2 day Cricket Cup Match which is the Bermudan holiday weekend. He brought his professional approach to bear as keenly on this domestic game as he would a international. A consummate professional.

Farrar immortalised!

May 2, 2016

This morning Adam opened his copy of the latest Listener; he turned to Jane Clifton’s column and saw Chris Slane’s cartoon. Forget the intent, David Farrar is forever immortalised in this cartoon, which is funny, clever and as always with Slane apposite.
