Moopy meets… Justin Langer!

September 12, 2009

Since we are trying to retain some shred of dignity today in the 1 day series against Australia (We lost the first 3 games, getting progressively worse) I thought it would be a good chance to show you this.

A few weeks ago we watched Somerset play Sussex at their home ground of Taunton. It was a good game (Somerset won, woo!) and went on fairly late because it was a day-night game. (At this point I’d like to apologise to any non-cricket fans, a day-night game starts in the late afternoon so people can often get there after work and goes on with floodlights after dark. Try here if you want to know anything about the game.) Because of the huge queues to get out of the ground and the car park we decided to hang around a bit to see if we could meet any of the players. The only other people doing this were a crowd of 10 year old boys wanting autographs and some of their pushy dads (“Get that one boys! He’s a good one to get!”)

Moopy is quite the cricket fan so we’d taken him with us, and he insisted on staying right until the last minute so he could meet the Somerset captain, Justin Langer. Luckily for us, when he finally emerged Justin was most obliging and even gave Moopy a kiss before posing for a photo. (Even if he did look completely mystified by the whole thing. I guess it made a change from all the young lads asking for autographs!)

cricket, friends, worth matravers 025

Thanks very much Mr Langer for making a little rabbit very happy!



  1. Totally awesome! Looks like Moopy got starstruck! 🙂

  2. Oh, la, la! isn’t Moopy the lucky one!

  3. I am worryingly jealous of Moopy!
