Well, the blighters went and won something like 87 gold medals didn't
they. You should hear the Australians here clucking about like a rooster
that's had every hen in the shed. It's so vile, so pretentious, so . .
. American! <grin>
Still, I have the satisfaction of reminding them that though their athletes
proved they're the class of the Commonwealth they broke few world records
and a surprising number of Commonwealth Games records still stand -- that
is, the Commonwealth Games do not represent a world-class competition.
We must only wait two years for the Atlanta '96 Olympics to find out.
It would be interesting to be here in Oz at that time and watch the roosters
