That we are indeed.
If you look back at the sporting greats over the last 2 decades and great sporting teams over the last few years, then you must count yourself very lucky to have lived through it all.
Every sporting code produced someone or a team whose achievements would never be bettered, not in our lifetime anyway.
We look at Jack Nicklaus (before my time) and Tiger Woods in golf
Mick Doohan, Valentino Rossi, Shumi, Loeb and McRae in motorsport
Michael Phelps in swimmingTennis had Pete Sampras, Martina, Steffi Graff and now Mr. Federer
Kallis, Warne and Tendulkar in cricket, as well as the Ausie cricket team of the late 90’s and early 2000’s
I hate to say this, but the All Black rugby team
Barcelona and in particular that short little shit called Messi. Sir Alex whose managerial record will never be broken.
The list could go on forever, but hell……we’ve been lucky to witness it all.
Years from now we could even tell our grand children that the Lions once also played in the Super 15.
