*sob* Australia just won the cricket, as expected, and Steve Waugh, the captain, got to make a speech afterwards. He said that they’d had a good couple of weeks, but the real heroes were all the firemen up in the bush saving lives and homes. Then he announced that the team was donating their entire winnings from the series – $51,000 – to the bush fire Relief Fund. Then as everybody was applauding, the head of the Australian cricket association said that they’d be matching the donation too. It’s like an Oprah moment.
