Inaugurating a pool

Inzamam-ul-Haq is taken to inaugurate a swimming pool after the press conference. I follow, musing that perhaps he might decide to jump in to cool his aching body. He goes to the steps where he is supposed to cut a ribbon. The ribbon waits. There are no scissors. The ribbon smirks.
