Oh it absolutely is, and yours is a great little tale and I'm certainly familiar with the sentiment.

I'm not having a go at Australia at all (and perhaps "flattered" is not the word I'm looking for), just that the morning period ended up as an unexploded bomb. Had it been an unbroken session, with the ball doing what it was, it could so easily have ended up as carnage and in light of that, 179 could be seen as a bit of an escape.

And of course, England haven't batted yet, a funny old game indeed.
I'm saving this space for the first good insult hurled my way
