Wimbledon's Official Poet

BBC: "People queuing to get into Wimbledon this year could be entertained by the All England Lawn Tennis Championships' first official poet. Matt Harvey will write a poem every day during the annual two-week competition in London SW19 next month. The Championships Poet 2010 will publish his verses - about anything from racquet stringers to strawberries and cream - online and in podcasts. He will also keep a blog, tweet and recite his poems to queuing spectators. " Don't expect to see this at NASCAR anytime soon.
