And in sporting news (cricket, of course), I wonder if Australia can make the World Cup final ? They're currently third in the Super Six stage, and need to beat England (by lots, hopefully!), and ideally have Pakistan beat New Zealand to make it through.
... hoping that someone would ask the obvious questions, like "Wait, aren't Australia in South Africa at the moment ?" and "What World Cup ?". I was, of course, talking about women's cricket. In case anyone was wondering, England won, beating NZ in the final - although you'd hardly know that unless you saw it on the SBS news.
There's a good article in The Independant from the UK's Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, making the case for increased coverage and promotion of women's sports, and I agree.
(btw: avoid the comments section if you value your sanity and/or blood pressure !)
At least cricinfo.com did cover the WWC, although after a while I found it slightly irritating that the men's team is "Australia" and the women's team always called "Australia Women", as if taking part in the Women's World Cup wouldn't be enough of a clue that the team called "Australia" would consist of ... women.
