Sadly Michael Clarke is not, ahem, Yankin' our chains:
Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke, fresh from witnessing major American sporting events, will urge Cricket Australia to invest more in entertainment at matches to attract new non-traditional fans to the game.
“The one thing I’ve learnt from being here is that Americans do sports better than any other country I’ve ever experienced. The whole time you’re there is pure entertainment. Even if you don’t follow that sport, you will have a great time because there’s so many other things going on around the event that make you want to go back. That’s something I will take back to Australia and Cricket Australia.”
Serious question: can you remember even one instance of memorably good "entertainment" - as opposed to the Batmobile, Meatloaf, Billy Idol power failure, etc - at an Australian sporting event? Idea! Australia should make intentionally bad entertainment, which may accidentally end up good. It's what we are best at. Sorted.
