Oh, Flintoff.

Forget what I wrote. Who needs 2009 when you can have another 2005? Then again, there are differences between that Flintoff and this one: that Flintoff was near his apogee, finally hitting his stride after a mediocre start to his career. This Flintoff is near his end, after a gradual fall. That makes him more poignant and almost statesmanlike; he’s not drunken Big Freddie, but a great and fallible man asking for the crowd’s heart one last time. Give it to him.
