Greatest Ever Sportsman; Keith Miller

Keith Miller

For no other reason than having been led badly astray last evening by a couple of Aussie's, who's idea of dinner was a couple of shared bags of cheese and onion crisps, I'm reminded of that greatest of all Australians and indeed, of sportsman, the Aussie all-rounder Keith Miller. When asked about pressure he replied, 

"Pressure," he said. 

"I'll  tell you what pressure is. Pressure is a Messerschmitt up your arse. Playing cricket is not."

Miller was, as you probably know, one of Australia's greatest all rounders and was a Mosquito pilot during the war.

Every child, or indeed anyone, taking sport or life too seriously should read about Keith Miller.
