Honestly, I don't care what you think about my personality, but you don't start a thread when a team is 327/5 congratulating another side for a series victory.
Next time Australia tour India, maybe I'll start a thread at the start of the series saying Well done India on retaining the Border Gavaskar trophy as well.
The reason I was nervous was because I knew that we really should win it. I was getting a bit jittery when Ponting and Hussey were going along nicely, but apart from that I was pretty sure of the win.I still can't believe the England followers who were nervous at any stage of a 546 run chase. How you would have coped in 1981 I can't imagine, or if you are old enough to remember it I'm surprised you lived to tell the tale.
I do remember, but I was at school for many of the big moments then. Anyway my nerves have got frayed and all my optimism in my cricket team has been utterly eroded through bitter defeats, or the eighties(barring Australia) and nineties as they were commonly known. Does make me wonder what Pizzorno will be like when he gets to my ageI still can't believe the England followers who were nervous at any stage of a 546 run chase. How you would have coped in 1981 I can't imagine, or if you are old enough to remember it I'm surprised you lived to tell the tale.
Team's a long way from right, yet, IMHO. It was nice (gorgeous, in fact ) to win, but really we've only papered over the cracks. For us to start kidding ourselves we have a great or even good side would be denial.Congrats England, deserved to win and outplayed us when it mattered, and also congrats to all the English fans around here, hope you guys start believing in your team a bit more from now on.
I'm pretty devo but it's not the worst sporting moment of the season for me, that was definitely Roddick losing at Wimbledon. That was as hard to take as the Roosters losing consecutive GF's a few years back.I should feel a lot more devasted but I don't for some reason.
