Quotes about Lionel TennysonEdit

  • He was a magnificent figure in the game ... and one does not see his like today. He was one of the Corinthians; he played cricket for fun, and played it well enough to beat the professors at their own game, sparing neither time nor money to raise the standard of English and Hampshire play. They called him "the Baron" because he was a man unaccustomed to mince words; but that was because he had a profound knowledge of the game and loved it, not meekly, but with a passion.
