Nice win the other day at the SCG with the cricket. It's a pity the press are fixated by Shane Watson's "atrocious"
batting average of around 76 and his knack of getting out in the 90's. You'd think Australia hasn't won a test in years going by someone like Roebuck's articles - the idiot.
Having been out for 98 in one innings and 99 in another, I could never understand all the talk about a failure afterwards. In both cases I was not aware of the total I was on, and played the shot I got out on in the normal course, taking into consideration what needed to be done for the team, not me. It was just the way the cards landed. I just felt good about a good knock, yet all I heard about it was a "good knocking", even ridicule.
Cricket is a funny game. No other sport have I seen prompt so much piss and wind from arm-chair experts, endlessly speculating about this and that. Combine it with beer and the Australian love of bullshit and what you have is a life-style, not a sport.
