GODS OF CRICKET: Stuart Broad of Nottinghamshire

I don't particularly like Cricket but there are times when I have to force myself to watch just because Thomas Broad is playing. Needless to say, he's worth the trouble- just look at the pictures above. But you know, even a God could be diminished by a bad photographer. Of course, this is not the first time that a good subject was mangled by the latter. I can still remember a few years back when I had to join an auction for some signed nude pictures by some athletes who had the temerity to be photographed by somebody who didn't understand he had to make the athletes look better, not sloppier, because they will sell the pictures for posterity. But what would you say when you receive the pictures replete with bad angles and shrunken profiles and cocks to boot? How could the idiot waste the chance to fling the image of the nude athletes to eternity admired not mocked? Well, Thomas Broad was a victim too when he had himself photographed nude, together with two other Cricket players.

Frankly, he doesn't deserve this picture.

  1. His name is Stuart, not "Thomas" or was that a reference to something I don't understand.
    And that picture was for a Testicular Cancer charity so was shown to young boys
