May I suggest "The Patrician Insouciant" as the name for this sport? :wink:

The Patrician without his cap is sort of letting his hair down, so to speak.

Insouciance: the cheerful feeling you have when nothing is troubling you. Synonyms: carefreeness, lightheartedness, lightsomeness. Type of blitheness, cheerfulness, a feeling of spontaneous good spirits. Insouciant is the adjective form.

Connotation of couldn't care less - which is the antithesis of the Patrician's normal attitude .... :wink:

There is a variation.
The bright spot on Mr Donko'd nose (row 3 column 5) is a little more central.
