    As soon as I heard this, I went to the Sydney newspapers website. They had a big banner on the front page, taking up at least half the screen with the news. The story fetured quotes from anyone and everyone including PM Howard on the news.

    The Man's a cultural icon, and it emphasizes how big some sports are in other countries.

    Greatest nickname ever. Simple. Easy to remember. And absolutely no sexual connotation at all. :D
