Rabbit experiences a Miracle

Rabbit experiences a Miracle 

So, it's the busiest day of the Wimbledon fortnight and, along with over ten thousand other people, Rabbit's been queueing for seven hours for a Grounds Pass. A hardy 500 or so have queued for 36+ hours for tickets on Centre Court and the other show courts. He finally gets to the ticket booth to hand over his money for his Grounds Pass, when his photographer has this crazy notion to ask the ticket seller if there's any chance of a Centre Court ticket. She expects him to fall over laughing, but instead he checks with his colleague and then puts one finger in the air to say 'yes, one ticket available'. 'What?' she says. 'You cannot be serious!'. But yes - he is - by some weird, inexplicable means, there is ONE CENTRE COURT TICKET available at that precise moment. 'Rabbit, you'll have to do without carrots for the next three months' says his photographer, 'we simply must buy this ticket'.

And so they did. And play on Centre Court starts in ten minutes time!!!!!!

thanks pillarboxcottage! We did a few Mexican waves, yes! Rabbit joined in with his ears. And apparently we were on telly too, during Djokovic-Chardy, though you might have struggled to pick out Rabbit.

More Wimbledon adventures to follow......

Wow centre court ticket! Good thing Rabbit had his photographer with him to pay. Or should I say Staff. But something tells me Rabbit will not be very happy giving up his carrots for three months...

Alan H, thank you!

Lina Pina, yes, without carrots those ears might start to droop....

Larry: Yes! There are some very smartly dressed people at Centre Court in the hospitality seats, in their blazers and posh frocks. But Rabbit held his head up high!

William: Thanks! I still can't believe it!

Kilrymont Ian: Oh, Rabbit doesn't dig holes, he has Staff to do that for him....

Great shot. Boy does he look pleased. I said he was lucky and I'm sure him being on centre court gave Andy that extra boost.
