My New Definition Of ‘Hubris’ — Thanks To The Australian Ball Scratchers.

by Anura Guruge



Click to ENLARGE and study. From Wikipedia — “hubris”.


Hubris‘ is a word that I am fond of, but have hitherto not used often because I was, until now, never sure whether I would nail it, exactly.

Not anymore.

Thanks to the ball tampering, cheating Australian bums, I now have the perfect — spot on — mental imagery for HUBRIS.

“Sudden, unexpected and precipitous downfall caused by brash, overconfidence”. BINGO. Nailed the Australian bums.

These two, captain and vice-captain, behaved, until today, as if they were immortal. Modern day gods immune to the travails of man. Not anymore. They have been sent packing, home, their sorry balls between their legs.

Hubris.

So, join me in remembering hubris in future — white Australian bums and the balls they scratch. Easy enough. Fairly graphic mental picture.
