* Easton Sr. Boys Cricket

When asked what he'd like to do after his team won the Easton Sr. Boys Cricket match, Anderson Jeffries simply answered "Keep winning." I thought this was obvious- that's the whole point isn't it, to keep winning all the way to the final match? But of course the fans and the press ate it up. "Jeffries 'Keep Winning!'" the headlines read the next day as if he had said something wonderful and witty at the same time. The addition of the exclamation mark was at odds with the serious expression on his face in the photo below. If there was any joy in winning Jeffries didn't show it.
