Why oh why?
Actually to be fair we all joke that the English are so rubbish at sport but...
We are in the top ten world teams at:
Horsey things in general
The top ten world individual sports of:
Tennis (yes Henman was ranked 6th recently)
Athletics (track and field)
Showjumping and other individual horsey things
We are world leaders in:
Race horse training
Formula one and rally car contruction
and most important we are world leaders in beating ourselves up and generally having a BAD TIME!
So the Aussies are going to win, good for them, at least they will have a good party afterward! I think we should not enter every major comp with the attitiude that to come second or third is to fail. Then we might have the attitiude and drive to retain the ashes.
Rant over, Thank you!
