Great story, nice to see that no one is complaining about his fans wearing patkas and fake beards while watching him play. I take it that their clowning around is seen as fans expressing their admiration for his comic ability as well as his ability to play well and maybe help bring the 'ashes' home again.
The BLF seems to be very Pythonesque too, yet it has helped to end descrimination as well. Glad he beat out Castro in that heated competition. richard
