I cry easily, I’m a sentimental fool sometimes,I don’t have a problem with that, I don’t think it’s a weakness in others – most of the time.
The fall out from “whatever-you-wanna-call-it-gate” around the events in the third (cricket) Test match between South Africa and Australia last weekend rumbles on. Time was you would believe that Aussies never cried, their skipper Kim Hughes was denounced for his weakness when he broke down in 1984 after suffering poor results and little or no support from a testosterone-heavy dressing-room.
Now, it seems, if you don’t cry to order when the cameras are in front of you there’s something wrong. Having listened to and seen the performances from the three players and the coach I am reminded of the words from the wonderful Saw Doctors song “HowYa Julia” about the Bishop Eamonn Casey of Galway affair.
“Oh the blind and faithful followers, are worried and distraught.
And the only thing that’s botherin’ them is that the poor man he got caught.”
