Friday morning moral questions.

These are the times that try men’s souls.

I find myself pondering the essential questions. What should we do, how can we live an ethical life in an age of terror?

But most importantly, where would Jesus bat if he played for the Australian test team?

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always seen Jesus as an all-rounder, the sort of gritty, determined player who could come in at number four or five and put together a handy half-century that would steady the side and lead to a big total. Nothing too flash, but useful with the bat.

I’d imagine he could also be a handy leg-spinner and pick up the odd wicket or two.

“Oh and another beautiful cover drive brings up Jesus’ century. The crowd is getting on their feet to salute this major religious figure and plucky batsman. Now he’s taking off his helmet and looking up at the sky, Jim.”

“Probably having a chat with his dad, Kerry”

“You know Jim, Jesus is a religious man but I’ve never seen him cross himself.”

“Bit of a sore point there Kerry.”

Disagree strongly.

Jesus was all with silky skills but a tendency to waste his innings.

I'm thinking David Gower-ish.

David Gower? That's a bit harsh, Fad.

Where would you put Jesus?

He could open, get out, then come back and bat again as a tail ender.

He's great with the drinks too.

Fad MD said...

Hmmm... my last post reads like it was written by Yoda. Apologies.

As to where to put him? He's the saviour isn't he? Therefore 5 or 6 it is.

He'd be pretty useful as a part-time bowler. The holes in the hands would give him a great slower ball.

I'm thinking more Keith Miller, all deboniar luck 'n' chance.

But not Doug Walters.

@fad md --> leave David Gower alone. :)

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Oooh, yeah - Keith Miller.

Good suggestion.

Fad MD said...

I see a distinct lack of respect for the great Keith Miller here.

You wouldn't see any "turning the other cheek" from Keith.

Fad MD said...

Maybe a Clive Lloyd sort of player though.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Maybe he could open the batting with Moses.

I can't see those two making too many ducks.

Jesus was a hippy. He'd be a bong-head and not even bother to watch the cricket.

If this Jesus you speak of was in fact a hippy who smoked then I sir would indeed be a believer....

I knew it. I knew it. Take that Mother Catherine. He was too hot to be anything less.
