From the Encyclopaedia you can trust:
Mitchell Guy Johnson (born 2 November 1981 in Townsville, Queensland) is an Australian cricketer. He is a left-arm fast-medium bowler and left-handed batsman. He took more than 90 wickets in his first 21 Tests and averaged in the mid-30s with the bat. He is quite simply the man.
That he is. That he is. If anyone changes this entry I shall kick them in the balls.
Not always, though, as should go without saying. For, say, the Victorian 'leg spinner' Bryce McGain, recently making his debut after an incredibly strong demand for a 'specialist spinner' to join the side and 'spin' the ball to 'take some wickets' Wikipedia has this to say:
McGain made his Test debut at Newlands in Cape Town in the third Test against South Africa in March 2009 however, McGain had a far from favourable Test debut conceding 0/149 from 18 overs. The South African batsman targetted him for attack and hit many sixes from his bowling. He made two in the first innings and was run out for a duck in the second.
For the sake of symmetry, if nothing else, this article should end with the sentence "He is quite simply SHITHOUSE".
I'm pretty sure that *I* could score a century of Bryce McGain's bowling. Now, I'm not railing against Cricket Australia for trying somebody else. In fact, I'd probably have a very different team (Katich, Hughes, Klinger, Ferguson, Ponting, Johnson, McDonald, Ronchi, Hauritz, Siddle, Bollinger say...). I am rather attacking Cricket Australia for deciding that the team needed a thirty-six year old IT professional.
We needed this:
Instead we got
Fuck you McGain.
Sigh. Why does revenge of the nerds never work in real life?
