This is NOT an appreciation thread. Repeat, NOT! Lord Pendragon is so charmingly old (world) school that he still enjoys cricket, and would find a praise thread embarrassing. I would never do such a thing to him. Probably. This is, instead, an appreciation threaT. This is where you should post (properly using the subjunctive) what you might say IF an appreciation thread were ever to be started in his honor. Fear not that you might go over the top. Heap it on. This is NOT real praise, and he will feel no embarrassment whatsoever. It is merely a speculative thread in which we collectively imagine what we might say if he continues to defy (yea, even mock) me!
