Anthony Ainley (1932-2004) The Wisden Almanacks obituaries have changed in recent years, from rather dry, fact-based accounts of a players career (longer if the chap went to the right school, or played in the Varsity Match) to, if at all possible, more rounded reviews of the persons life. Dan Hampton Jersey . Even jokes arent banned anymore. The change really started when Matthew Engel took over as editor in 1993. The whole book became more expressive, more characterful and more fun.I joined the Almanacks obituaries team before I started full-time for the Almanack itself. In 2004 I was still Cricinfos editor, and Matthew asked me to help out when I could. I was lucky that an alphabetical accident meant my first obituary was a memorable one.Anthony Ainley wasnt a first-class cricketer but an actor who won fame as The Master, the evil nemesis of Doctor Who. I knew he was a keen club cricketer, as Id played against him. I knew he batted in what looked like flying goggles, to protect his eyes for screen close-ups. And I knew - because hed done it to me - that if he felt tied down at the crease he would leap out, Trumper-like, with bat behind ear, and try to scythe you through covers. At one of our encounters hed had a tiff with a highly strung thespian team-mate and sloped off to take tea in his car. Gentle probing established that the argument wasnt to blame - he often did this, as he hated cheese, the ever-present staple of club teas, and brought his own food.My club had an enthusiastic chronicler at the time, who would drop off match reports to the local paper on his way home. His words of wisdom on this particular game obviously excited the sports desk, as the headline for our match report exclaimed that Inter-Galactic Terror had been visited upon Surrey.Don Bradman (1908-2001) Probably my most memorable obituary - or appreciation - came in 2001. We were setting up Wisden.com (which later merged with Cricinfo), and were coming to terms with the 24-hour nature of the beast. Late one cold February evening I received a phone call: Have you heard? Don Bradman has died.I hadnt heard. And there wasnt much time to reflect: the news, and an appraisal of the Don, had to go up online pronto. It was pushing midnight, but the words seemed to flow, and about half an hour later I pressed the button. Satisfyingly, my verdict was out there. Not long afterwards, the editor of a sumptuous Bradman tribute volume asked whether he could include it. The piece duly appeared in there, opposite another appreciation by Australias prime minister, John Howard - which, I suspect, impressed the Aussie half of my family more than anything else Ive ever done.Nigel Bennett (1912-2008) At the Almanack we dont often have the pressure of time; with the book out like clockwork every April, theres usually a reasonable period to work on those who passed away the previous year - although the sad demise of Tony Greig on December 29 a couple of years ago ruffled the teams calm a little.But perhaps theres a drawback in not preparing anything beforehand: manys the time Ive fervently wished I had spoken to the player before he took his leave, to discover more about an obviously interesting life. One such was Nigel Bennett, the man who was appointed captain of Surrey by mistake. When he died in 2008 we consulted Alec Bedser, who just nodded and termed it the cock-up.It seems that not long after Surrey decided to appoint a Major Leo Bennett as their first post-war skipper in 1946, Major Nigel Bennett popped in to renew his subscription. Someone in the office totted up two and two and made five, and Major Nigel was duly asked to take over as captain. This peculiar story was neatly embellished when Matthew Engel discovered that the players decided they could put up with Bennett once they clapped eyes on his wife, who was a real cracker.Michael Mence (1944-2014) There arent many advantages to getting older, but I suppose its a help to obituary-writers: youre more likely to have seen the player concerned. One such, who duly appeared in the 2015 Almanack, was Michael Mence, who I met several times when I worked at Lords after leaving school.Mence was an old-fashioned amateur who played hard and partied harder. I remember one morning bumping into my boss, Lieutenant-Colonel John Stephenson, and thinking he looked less dapper than usual following the previous nights committee meeting. I must have raised an eyebrow because he winced: I know. Mence. Never again. Mence had been a precocious schoolboy cricketer but played for Warwickshire and Gloucestershire without a great deal of success. He had more luck in Minor Counties cricket for Berkshire, and was also an MCC regular, especially enjoying their annual matches against Ireland and Scotland. And he was, according to MCCs annual report, probably the last player to appear at Lords sporting a cravat - a titbit I wish Id known before finishing the obituary. Somewhat spookily Mence passed away three days after his father (who also played for Berkshire) died in the same hospice on the Isle of Wight.Don Wilson (1937-2012) Someone else I knew well from my time at Lords was Don Wilson, the Yorkshire and England slow left-armer who later became MCCs head coach. He was interesting (and occasionally infuriating) to work with, a fund of funny stories and far-fetched excuses for why he hadnt quite managed to do what hed been asked.But most of the time he was riotous company, so I was sad when I heard he had succumbed to emphysema in 2012. And, after a week in which very little seemed to have been written about him, I jotted down some memories of Wils, which seemed to go down well. Leonard Floyd Jersey . That left plenty of energy for pitching books and swatting away free agency questions. Anthony had 24 points and nine rebounds, and the Knicks avenged an embarrassing home loss with a rout of their own, beating the Boston Celtics 114-88 on Wednesday night for their third straight victory. Walter Payton Jersey . Andreas Johnson had a goal and two assists while Jacob de la Rose also scored for Sweden (2-0-0). Esa Lindell and Rasmus Ristolainen replied for Finland (1-1-0) Lindell opened the scoring for Finland just 41 seconds into the game, but the hosts quickly regained their composure and tied the score less than four minutes later on Wennbergs first of the game. http://www.cheapbearsjerseyssale.com/?tag=eric-kush-jersey-sale . "I dont know that were close," said general manager Alex Anthopoulos. "I just think, right now, the acquisition cost just doesnt work for us right now. I dont know if I can quantify how far off or things like that that they might be but I would say we continue to have dialogue. SAN MARCOS, Texas -- Elijah McGuire ran for 112 yards and two touchdowns to lead Louisiana-Lafayette to a 27-3 win over Texas State on Saturday night.McGuire had 20 carries and punched in his touchdowns from the 4 in the second quarter and from the 1 midway through the third. Anthony Jennings completed 18 of his 22 passes for 156 yards, including an 18-yard touchdown throw to Keenan Barnes, while Stevie Artigue had 36- and 42-yard field goals.The win snapped a three-game skid for Louisiana-Lafayettee (3-4, 2-2 Sun Belt). Bilal Nichols Jersey. Texas State (2-5, 0-3) got a 29-yard field goal from Marcus Ripley to cap the games 12-play, 63-yard opening drive before being held scoreless the rest of the way as Louisiana-Lafayette piled up 392 total yards while holding the Bobcats to 79 yards rushing and 221 overall.Tyler Jones was 20 of 28 for 142 yards passing to lead the Bobcats.
