The Pirate King

Rafael Nadal
Who wants to wear a cardigan now? Let’s all dress like a pirate! Aarrrgh! The king is dead, long live the Pirate King!

It is sometimes misremembered that Lord Cardigan led the Charge of the Light Brigade to its doom wearing their natty little cardigan uniforms that his Lordship designed himself. Lord Cardigan survived himself unscathed though his reputation was left in tatters. These days all his Lordship is remembered for is the Cardigan.

Pirates on the other hand can wear just about anything and look cool. Rafa even looks cool with those silly knee supports that I’m not entirely sure pirates used to wear. He even picks his bottom through his pants annoyingly and bites trophies with disturbing regularity.

As a French Marshal said of the famous charge: "C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas la guerre." ("It is magnificent, but it is not war.")
