recent updates for those who don't know: 1) Mundine knocked out cold in world title bout. 2) Australia defeated against all odds by France in Davis Cup, tennis, 3-2. 3) New Zealand in command of third and deciding cricket test against Australia, on Aussie soil, against world champions. 4) Australian Socceroo's denied World Cup dream after defeat in Montevideo, score line from series 3-1. 5) What more? possibly many more fields in which we are failing. So the question is: are we truly the world champs in sporting terms? Or is our arrogance without justification? I can say my patriotic pride is suffering from such a string of heartbreaking defeats. your thoughts.
