The week away in Fowey was also a nice reminder of some Biblical sportspeople.
There’s the world’s first goalkeeper, Cain:
Then the Lord said to Cain, “Where is your brother Abel?”
“I don’t know,” he replied. “Am I my brother’s keeper?”
And also the world’s first tennis player, Joseph:
He was thirty years old when he began serving in the court of Pharaoh, the king of Egypt
I expect to be struck down by a lightening bolt for making such sacreligious jokes. They’re so bad, I deserve to be.
