Billy Bowden pops up in the oddest places

I was flicking through a medical journal this morning and came across an almost full-page photo of Billy Bowden signalling a wide. The photo was part of an ad for a cream that treats arthritis by "depleting substance P from the whole c-fibre neurone both peripherally and centrally".

I'm not sure how I feel about cricket umpires having a media profile, but I guess a) Billy has a good reason to be involved in advertising an arthritis treatment, b) an ad in a medical journal hardly counts as having a media profile and c) it is certainly no worse than Stephen Fleming promoting deoderant and air conditioning.

He is a great character. The crowds are roaring when he is shown on the giant screen as if he is one of the top players in IPL
