Lancashire supporter adrift in Adelaide
Today, as I was trying to navigate my way around or through the barriers which have been erected in the east parklands for the petrol heads' big days out next weekend (aka the Clipsal 500), I asked a passerby by for directions. He was on even less familiar ground than me as he turned out to be a Lancastrian (or Mancunian), which I'd have deduced before he spoke had I looked closely at his attire. He was wearing an Old Trafford cap - with a cricket pavilion - and he somewhat sheepishly admitted to being a Lancashire cricket follower, though his bright red shorts suggested that he might have had more than a passing interest in Manchester United F C.
