No, wait. I'm here about the jelly beans. When India was in to bat on Sunday, someone was chucking jellybeans surreptitiously onto the pitch in front of Zaheer Kahn. This has caused somewhat of a kerfuffle and a great deal of pretty hilarious radio call-in op-eddish material.
I must confess that I think sledge-by-jellybean is hilarious. But I am absolutely gobsmacked by a quote that, so far as I can see, has passed with no comment, perhaps because it doesn't need it. Of the incident, English batsman Paul Collingwood purportedly said:
“Zaheer wasn’t too pleased. I think he prefers blue jelly beans to the pink ones.”
Was that a homophobic slur disguised in a jellybean?
Am I being too subtle here? Maybe it's just me ...
