Our Greatest Moment


The second greatest sporting moment in my lifetime.

Yes!

We're in!

By qualifying for Germany 2006, we've gained world respect not even one hundred wars can forge.

Yes!

At last!

Now, look again at the absolute poignancy of the photo above (from The Herald Sun). Marco Bresciano's just kicked the goal but he's stunned, staring into space.

Gobsmacked.

For Harry Kewell, over 8 years of hard work on the field (and even harder work off it), is starting to pay off.

And boy, didn't Harry work hard last night.

According to Strunk and White's Elements of Style, speaking in the passive voice is mandatory when writing about sport.

You're telling me the word, "poignancy" need not be qualified?

Again, when you have something big to say about a sporting event, absolutely everything must absolutely qualified, completely absolutely.
