    Certainly was.

    I have read some of that before, but had forgotten a fair bit.

    I knew some of that but also learnt a lot. So we could be yelling out "Go The Cecils"! Or "Go the Cecil Swans"! Now that would have been fun.

    And that old saying about needing to have a contingency plan in case someone gets hit by a truck has an historical basis!
