Oh yes!!! The only Englishman at my workplace here in Australia. And luckily enough "the boys" are managing not to lose at the moment!
Enjoying every moment of it, the Aussies at work expect victory at every Test (much like the coverage on the News!! - 5-0 whitewash one ex-Aussie player predicted on the TV coverage panel), so every day is a good day to gloat.
There were some quiet Aussies at work today following Day 1 of the 2nd Test (tee hee!) and one rather boisterous Englishman.....fingers crossed our bowlers can do some damage this time.
Don't worry though, made them totally aware that the English expectation is to lose at cricket to Australia, so we never get downbeat - it can literally only get better - LOL!!!
Been an enjoyable week all in - State Of Origin Rugby League (I root for Queensland) - 3rd game in series (already won by Q'land) ended up being a fired up tough hard game, ending in some real hatred going on between NSW and Q'land players, and plenty of "handbags at 50 paces" action!! Mind you, some of these guys must be on steroids, they were so fired up it was unreal!
So what's the sports scene like in your country? Plenty of rivalry? Plenty of hatred, and talk the talk?
