So we’re at work during research for our “top secret client” when we came across this article.
This week Steve Harmison finally got himself dropped from England’s Test team. It has taken a Herculean effort from the gangling Durham fast man, one that should be applauded for its imaginative qualities if nothing else. The final straw seems to have been his promise, during the Hamilton Test, to “try my nuts off every time”
The reaction of the England selectors raises some interesting questions. Either (a) Harmison was not actually trying his nuts off at all or was only partially or intermittently trying his nuts off; or (b) trying your nuts off is not such a good idea after all. There is a growing body of evidence to suggest the latter may be the case.
I don’t know about you but I am TOTALLY stealing this phrase haha
