Is that Cricket?

Gateway Pundit has pictures and links to news about President Bush's visit to Pakistan (h/t Instapundit). Apparently, he found time for a little cricket. This was my favorite pic:













Here's an excerpt from an* interview Brit Hume did with Bush:


Hume: Yeah. Now, I notice this here, you've got this cricket bat here...
Bush: Yes.
Hume: Do you play?
Bush: No, I carry this partly of, uh, I don't know some sort of, uh, I suppose what's the word...uh....
Hume: Affectation?
Bush: Yes, I mean it's, it's, a it's a kind of totemestic thing you know, but to be quite frank with you, it's come in useful in a couple of situations. Certainly in the topsy, turvy world of [politics], having a good solid piece of wood in your hand is quite often...useful.**
