… almost the width of Gatting
It’s time to announce it, it’s time to come clean – I am in love with George Bailey. I know, I’m a bit late to the party but he did my interview for me (despite me basically storming the players lunch room and demanding to speak to someone) and he emailed me with it at 8am on a match day, which I thought was pretty cool.
But George Bailey is not a deity along the lines of Lord and Little Nate. Neither is George Bailey a superhero, in the canon with SuperMussey (Superman’s hero). George Bailey is above such things. He is a George Bailey for all of us.
He is Our George.
I know his position is frequently debated – some say he shouldn’t be T20 captain because he can’t bat in that format; others say he is not designed for the longer format of the game. I say, get on board – he is Our George. He is suitable for all ages and abilities; he is durable and long lasting.
And it’s not just me that thinks so, see below for some George Bailey testimonials:
George Bailey is ginger, it’s true, and a Tasmanian but he mows my lawn whenever I click my fingers and can really grill a snapper. My husband wouldn’t be without him.

Since we got George Bailey, we haven’t had to discuss how crap Bloody Vic Cam White is, and that makes for more harmonious dinners in my house. Thank you, George Bailey.

So, there you go – what are you all waiting for? Get on board with the George Bailey love. He mightn’t be that good at T20, and he does play IPL, and he is ginger. And a Tasmanian … wait, what was I saying?
Oh yes, learn to love Our George.
He did this interview with me.
