Under the headline 'Freddie booze cruise shame', The Sun is reporting (11 Feb 09) that Andrew Flintoff and Steve Harmison 'lapped up luxury' on a 'lavish free booze cruise' the night England were bowled out for 51. After all the 'Fredalo' drunkeness last time Flintoff was in the Caribbean, this could be a big story, firther evidence of indiscipline and failure in the England cricket team. Read past the headline and first few sentences however, and we see they 'did not drink over dinner on the boat. They had a couple of drinks before retiring.' And 'Hampshire County Cricket Club chairman Rod Bransgrove said Flintoff and Harmison declined all the free booze on offer while he was with them on the cruise.'
Total. Non. Story.
