Well, well, well. It’s fair to say I was highly surprised and very happy to learn that I’d made an appearance in this year’s Wisden, the 150th edition of the famous old almanack, now under the stewardship of Lawrence Booth, its youngest ever editor. Apparently, I’m mentioned in an article about blogs and bloggers (p185) and how they’ve changed the cricket-writing landscape, penned by the excellent legsidefilth (whose real name will be revealed when I buy the old yellow brick). He wrote: “Scott Oliver at reversesweeper takes a more academic and philosophical approach, combining tales of league cricket with and against [---], with references to David Hume and non-linear thermodynamics. As you do”. Touched.
