    Great to hear you enjoyed it. Did you come to watch cricket? Also cricket in this part of the country is somewhat under developed, it's played with a lot of passion, as I, as an ump of the lower leagues, can attest.

    Oh - test not over yet? It is. Australia has lost. Had nobody found the courage to tell you yet? Incredible. Well - they have lost.

    But since you have nothing to add either - what are you doin' here?
